Rams +3According to
the Newark Star-Ledger, the Jets have decided not to play rookie
quarterback Mark Sanchez as much in the preseason opener. Jets want to
protect against him getting hurt with three of their starting linemen
out with injuries. Nick Mangold, Damien Woody and Alan Fenaca will all
sit this game.
Also - I read that the Rams will be playing Bulger quite a bit in preseason - not sure about this specific game. I live about 2 hrs from St. Louis and the word is that Steven Jackson is healthy and running like a beast and catching quite a few catches out of the backfield. Again - not sure if he will play much tomorrow, but with Jets down several key players and the Rams getting points and appear to be healthy - I'll take the Jets +3 for half a degenerate preseason unit
