"We have a ways to go, and we know we have our work cut out for us, but the guys are starting to gel and we did some good things," Jets coach Todd Bowles said.
"Everybody was moving in the same direction, and everybody was moving in the right direction," Fitzpatrick said.
"He read it," Bowles said. "He's been playing a long time. I think there was a little hesitation by Eli. He went to him at the last minute and Cro broke. He studies a lot of film."
Both teams rested most of their starters after the first half.
Punt returner Walter Powell supplied the biggest highlight of the second half, returning a punt by Robert Malone 54 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter.
The teams will play again in a regular-season game on Dec. 6.
"You can't be perfect, but we've got to eliminate the self-inflicted wounds," Jennings said. "When we do that, we'll have the consistency down that we're gonna need during the season."
The Giants' defense once again had trouble on crossing patterns and it had a major blown coverage on the screen pass to Stacy. He caught it and there was nothing in front of him but turf.
