There's more than a month to go in the regular season and the Mets have already broken their club record for home runs at Citi Field. Kelly Johnson hit the team's 86th, a pinch-hit grand slam in the seventh inning against the Phillies. The previous mark of 85 was set last season.

The Giants first-team offense with Eli Manning at QB had 4 first downs and 88 total yards vs. Bills and Jets in pretty much four quarters of action. They did not score a point.

Victor Cruz makes his first catch in 685 days on the first play of the second half. It was Cruz's 27th snap of the game.

Jets LB David Harris (shoulder) is out for the remainder of the game. He's the QB of the defense. Can't afford to lose him.

Jets 7, Giants 0 (HALFTIME): The Jets can feel good about their defense, which has dominated in every aspect. Big plays by Darrelle Revis, Mo Wilkerson and Calvin Pryor. The improved team speed is evident. The starting offense, sans Brandon Marshall, managed one score in five series. Ryan Fitzpatrick was rusty, missing open receivers. He had one good throw, a 22-yard TD to Eric Decker. Matt Forte has 12 touches, no big plays in his Jets debut.

Asdrubal Cabrera is valued at 0.9 Wins Above Replacement, but his recent production has been irreplaceable. Cabrera's third homer in two games gave the Mets a third-inning lead over the Phillies. The Mets are 57-48 when Cabrera starts this season, 8-15 when he doesn't. Cabrera's 16 home runs are his most in a season since he hit that many with the 2012 Indians.

In his Jets debut, RB Matt Forte played 11 of 20 snaps in the first quarter -- 6 carries for 15 yards, two catches for nine yards. They moved him around the formation, using him on the left and right wings. The offense looks lost without Brandon Marshall (inactive).

It appears as if coach Ben McAdoo is calling plays. He has the oversized menu-looking chart. OC Mike Sullivan had called plays in first 2 preseason games.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

This preseason has been a re-birth for the Jets' special teams, which stunk last season. Bruce Carter blocked a punt deep in Giants territory to set up the offense, which fumbled it back to the Giants. Not exactly crisp football.

Jets WR Brandon Marshall, chatting with personnel director Brian Heimerdinger, is scratched from tonight's game. He's smiling and talking with people along the sideline. If he's resting, it's an odd game to take off.
