Michael Vick showed he can still make things happen on offense, too.

Smith and Vick each threw for a touchdown with the New York Jets' starters, and the defense mostly shut down Eli Manning before the Giants' backups rallied for a 35-24 preseason victory Friday night.

Smith, the likely starting quarterback for the Jets (2-1)...

Calvin Johnson played for the first time this preseason, catching two passes for 27 yards, but Matthew Stafford was intercepted once and the Lions struggled in the red zone.

Blake Bortles threw for 158 yards and a...
