The second-year mystery man answered some questions in the New York Jets' preseason opener Saturday night at MetLife Stadium, delivering a respectable performance in his first game action in a year. He converted a pair of third downs on his final drive, but that possession ended in plus-territory after a bad exchange between Jonatthan Harrison and Hackenberg. Anderson, the Jets' presumed No. 1 receiver after the loss of Quincy Enunwa, hauled in the pass at the Titans 2-yard line. But after that series, the defense allowed only 178 total yards, and the longest play by the Jets for the remainder of the game was 14 yards. Well-traveled veteran Josh McCown got the start for NY. Hackenberg was 18 of 25 for 127 yards. It means Peake takes every part of his job seriously, and with special teams contributions on his game film, he should be a lock to make the roster.

Bryce Petty, a fourth-round pick in 2015, finished up and was 2 of 6 for 16 yards. He had three receptions for 71 yards.

Quarterback Josh McCown marched the first team offense down the field for an opening drive touchdown.

As far as rookies go, Taywan Taylor was a bright spot for the Titans. Sixth-round draft pick Elijah McGuire played two drives with the first-team offense. The drive ended with Ryan Succop's 36-yard field goal.

McCown finished 3-of-4 for 72 yards and the touchdown.

Former Jets wide receiver Eric Decker had no catches in his return to the Meadowlands.

Devon Still, Anthony Johnson, Josh Martin, Jordan Jenkins, Bruce Carter, Leonard Williams, Patrick Gamble and Stanford had sacks for the Jets.

By all accounts, Ross Martin is "winning" the kicking competition in camp as Catanzaro misses short field goal attempts with embarrassing frequency.

Jets: Running backs Matt Forte (hamstring), Bilal Powell (neck) and linebacker Lorenzo Mauldin did not play.
