Ryan Nassib has mixed bag performance in final preseason tuneup
Ryan Nassib started Thursday nightâ€™s game against the New England Patriots with Eli Manning sitting out and the backup QB played into the second half. He finished 16-for-29, good for a 55.2 completion percentage, totaled 210 passing yards, and threw for one touchdown and one interception. He was sacked three times and also got downfield once; rushing for a five yard gain.
Nassibâ€™s game was again up and down but there were a lot more highlights than lowlights tonight. His below average pocket awareness plagued him again on a night where he took three bad sacks and hesitated to pull the trigger on multiple throws downfield. But the good was also there at different points which included a quick slant to Tavarres King that turned into a 59-yard touchdown. Nassib showed enough to keep his roster spot going into a contract year but he might not ever be an NFL starter.
