It was a nice return to the football field for Plaxico Burress.  Familiar territory for the pro bowl wide receiver, just a different uniform.  The New York fans made him feel very welcome in the Jets preseason victory over the Bengals, 27-7.

This was something Burress had been looking forward too for a while now.  He was signed to the team last month after serving almost 2 years in prison.  He got injured during training camp but had a positive return to the NFL last night.  He caught three passes.  The first was met with big cheers from the home crowd.  He would also catch a TD from Mark Sanchez to put the Jets up 17-7 over the Bengals.  Burress proved that he will be a most welcome addition to this already explosive team.

Mark Sanchez was his usual self, 12-20 with a 173 yards.  That included the 20 yard TD to Plaxico and a 16 yard TD to Santonio Holmes.  Rush wise, Chris Jennings led the team with 81 yards. Next up for the Jets are the New York Giants in preseason action this Saturday.
