The New York Jets face the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday in their preseason finale at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. Game time is 6:35 p.m. ET.

Gang Green enters Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field for Thursday's preseason finale with the Eagles yet to score a touchdown through its first three outings, becoming the first team since the 1977 Atlanta Falcons to fail to do so over such a stretch. The Jets have gone a total of 35 possessions without reaching the end zone, with the first-team offense on the field for 15 of those drives.

Unfortunately for the Jets, whether they experience any offensive success against the Eagles on Thursday won't really matter. Neither starting quarterback Mark Sanchez nor backup Tim Tebow are scheduled to play. Quarterback duties will be split by Greg McElroy and Matt Simms.

Despite being winless this preseason, and having the league's least-productive offense thus far, the Jets are outwardly expressing confidence.

"We’re saving our good stuff for Buffalo," said Sanchez of the Jets' season-opening opponent. "We’re anticipating a great start versus Buffalo."
