Watch: Patriots’ JC Jackson Shines Before Leaving Game And There’s A Huge Reason Why
The New England Patriots can relax now that the 2018 preseason is over. They did an amazing job, but fans are now ready for a real game. It’s not like the preseason games were nothing. But, it’s time for real football, right? JC Jackson did a nice job, too.
The New England Patriots quarterback Danny Etling managed to battle it out against the New York Giants quarterbacks Kyle Lauletta and Alex Tanney for a 17-12 win. And JC Jackson?
The preseason finale was important for the all the Patriots players who still battle for their spot in the 53-man roster. Many of them won’t even make the roster, but hey, not everyone can play. The Practice squad slots are also important, and some players are already looking for opportunities in other teams.

JC Jackson let up a 41-yard touchdown catch to Amba-Etta Tawo when he managed to evade a pick play and lost the Giants wide receiver somewhere in the field. Jackson also had two interceptions and two pass breakups. Will he make the squad? It seems like the Patriots undrafted free agent will make the roster.
Jackson was then carted to the team’s tunnel with dehydration.
New England is the home of many great players, and quarterback Tom Brady is still out there struggling to help the team win another Super Bowl. The Patriots have done a really great job when it comes to creating a strong team, and fans have high hopes regarding their game in the regular season. Will the Pats win the Super Bowl? They have a nice chance of doing so. Last year they were too close to the grand award, and this year they are even closer. Head coach Bill Belichick will make a few calculations before the season starts, and he has already created the winning formula.
