The Jets visit Long Island for a scrimmage at Hofstra University and play Washington in their second home game of the preseason. Tension mounts as competition for a spot on the regular-season roster intensifies.
A 24-person NFL Films crew is living at Jets training camp, shooting up to 1,000 hours of video over the course of the series. Camera and sound crews are given unencumbered access to the players’ and coaches’ meeting rooms, training facilities, dormitories and practice fields.
