JETS NAME MCCOWN THE STARTER Josh McCown will start at quarterback in the Jets’ regular-season opener at Buffalo, beating out Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty. Coach Todd Bowles announced his decision, ending a strange training-camp competition.

McCown, 38, was the assumed starter the moment he signed a one-year, $6 million deal in March, and that never changed despite the fact he has played in just one series in a preseason game. Hackenberg, a second-round pick last year, had an increase in practice snaps and had started the last two games. But he struggled mightily and made no real push to win the job. Petty was considered the third option, and was solid in the preseason but left Saturday’s game against the Giants with a sprained knee.
