Aaron Rodgers hooked up with Garrett Wilson on a pitch-and-catch touchdown in his first action in a New York Jets uniform on Saturday.
Rodgers quarterbacked the first two offensive possessions of the Jets' preseason finale against the host New York Giants in East Rutherford, N.J. He completed 5 of 8 passes for 47 yards, three of his completions going to Wilson, last year's NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.
After the Jets' first drive ended in a punt, Rodgers guided them on a four-play, 52-yard scoring drive aided by a 22-yard defensive pass interference penalty. Rodgers completed a 10-yard pass to Mecole Hardman before throwing a fade to his left for Wilson, resulting in a 14-yard touchdown.
After the Jets tacked on a 67-yard interception return for a touchdown by Brandin Echols, they sat Rodgers for backup Zach Wilson.
Rodgers took snaps in the preseason for the first time since Aug. 16, 2018, with the Green Bay Packers. The Jets acquired Rodgers from the Packers this offseason after the four-time MVP spent his first 18 NFL seasons in Green Bay.
