The New York Jets have announced the game dates and times for their 2021 preseason games.
Jets fans will get their first glimpse of new quarterback Zach Wilson and the other rookies in game action on Saturday, August 14, 2021 at 7:30 pm EST. The first preseason game will technically be a road game for the Jets, but it will be played at MetLife Stadium, against the New York Giants.
Next up will be a road game against the Green Bay Packers, presumably without disgruntled quarterback Aaron Rodgers for the Packers. This will be a rare preseason afternoon game, with kickoff scheduled for 4:25 pm EST on Saturday, August 21, 2021.
The Jets will conclude the 2021 preseason with a home game against the Philadelphia Eagles. The preseason finale will take place at 7:30 pm EST on Friday, August 27, 2021 at MetLife Stadium.
Following the last preseason game the Jets will have 16 days to prepare for the regular season opener on Sunday, September 12, 2021 against the Carolina Panthers.
