It’s a good thing the NFL preseason is meaningless, as neither the Jets nor the Buffalo Bills won a game in the first three weeks. (We went to press before the final exhibition games were played, but we don’t see much difference in 1-3 and 0-4.) The fun for Jets fans, of course, is a firsthand look at the big Sanchez-versus-Tebow competition the front office has set up and cashed in on big time. (How big is that market? When the Jets signed Tim T. last spring, Nike sued Reebok for supplying without authorization “Tebow-identified New York Jets apparel.”) So if you have the bucks, head out to MetLife Stadium for the season’s first fall football Sunday. Tickets are still available on StubHub, starting around $80 for upper deck, but be sure to bring your binoculars if you want to watch the game.
