The New York Jets will suit up for their third game of the NFL preseason on Saturday night when they play host to the New Orleans Saints.
The Jets, who finished the 2018 season at 4-12, lost their opening game of the preseason to the New York Giants, 31-22, then defeated the Atlanta Falcons, 22-10, in their second tuneup.
