There was a lot going on during the second big night of the preseason. Here's what we learned:
» There was something almost subversive about watching talked-about Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict end Tim Tebow's night with a diving interception. It was a fitting conclusion to a rough night for the Jets passing attack. Tebow and Mark Sanchez struggled just like they have in training camp with only 48 yards on 14 passing attempts. Straight outta Cortland.
» Tebow picked up a few extra first downs on the ground, but there really wasn't much to draw from this performance. The Jets offense struggled equally in all phases.
» Ryan Tannehill was the NFL story of the night. With David Garrard recovering from knee surgery, there will be pressure to speed up the rookie's development. It was only one preseason game, but he looked the part. Tannehill was not afraid to throw the ball into tight coverage. He throws well on the run and showed some touch.
» Tannehill's 167-yard, one-touchdown effort came with and against backups. It will be telling to see if Joe Philbin tests Tannehill with the starters next week.
» Chad Johnson was quiet, killing a drive with a drop on the only pass that came his way. Johnson's old teammate in New England, Tiquan Underwood, meanwhile, had three catches for 76 yards for the Buccaneers.
» Bucs rookie linebacker Lavonte David was all over the field. He looks like an impact player and immediate starter for Tampa.
» Running back Doug Martin's numbers weren't flashy (seven carries for 21 yards), but he showed a nice ability to take a hit and keep his balance. The Bucs' running game numbers were down because of a lot of short-yardage attempts.
» Our Browns correspondent Marc Sessler says Browns rookie Brandon Weeden looked a lot better than his ugly box score indicated. Weeden looked calm and showed a strong arm. We'll take Sessler's word for it.
» Cleveland's starters looked sloppy overall. They had eight first-half penalties and the Lions pass rush forced two turnovers.
» Blaine Gabbert led a touchdown drive on Jacksonville's opening possession. The rest of his night didn't go so great, but that's a start.
» There was a moment Friday when "David Carr" was trending worldwide on Twitter and "Tim Tebow" was not. We're not really sure why, although Carr did throw two touchdowns.
» Giants rookie running back David Wilson showed why he is a boom-or-bust type of player. He had four runs for no gain or negative yardage. He had two runs over 15 yards and 2 catches for 26 yards. Just what defenses facing the Giants need: another explosive offensive player to worry about.
» Peyton Hillis has enjoyed a strong training camp. He backed it up with 55 yards on five touches.
That will do it from Around the League headquarters in New York. Our Thursday night six-game wrapup is right here. See you Saturday night for two games.
