NFL preseason winners, losers: Tom Brady, Jameis Winston look sharp

The 2022 NFL preseason is a wrap, all 32 teams completing their three-game exhibition slate over the weekend and now moving on to more important matters – Tuesday’s cutdown to 53-man rosters and two weeks of prep heading into regular-season openers.

As has historically been the case, the third game was a mini dress rehearsal for several squads, though it’s rare to see starters play much more than a quarter nowadays. For many veterans, the rust seemed apparent. For quite a few others – Denver Broncos QB Russell Wilson and Los Angeles Rams QB Matthew Stafford among them – the shrink wrap remained in place, so even harder to know what to expect when the real games begin.
