GAME REVIEW ⚡️
Preseason, Week 2 — vs New Orleans
In a 17-19 loss, we showed some things that were encouraging to see.
• Rookie Jerry Tillery got his first NFL sack!
• Great special teams play that helped Pope get his first punt return TD!
• 3 holding penalties that cost us 1st downs — TE Henry, OL Scott, OL Tevi
• Trey Pipkins got reps at LT and made a great impact block with FB Derek Watt to help Justin Jackson pick up a gain of 17yds
• Defense showed great pass rush pressure again, including a play where Nwosu forced an early pass into the hands of Jenkins for the INT
• Despite never giving the team a reason to keep him the past 3 years, QB Cardale Jones gave arguably his best performance yet • Stick didn’t play as hot in Week 2, including his game-losing INT on the final drive of the game
• Not enough points scored by our offense again
