When Being A New York Jets Fan Was Fun…
Right now if you’re a Jets fans, there is absolutely nothing to look forward to when your favorite team takes the field. They are arguably the worst team in the NFL. Well to lighten the mood a little bit, I want to take a look back at few moments when you were proud to be a Jets fan. Here are some of the best wins in New York Jets history!
- Super Bowl III – One of, if not the greatest game the New York Jets have every played was on January 12th, 1969. Joe Namath and gang green took on Johnny Unitas and the Baltimore Colts. The Jets were the big underdogs in the game, but Namath was confident that he would lead his team to victory, which he did! This was the first ever Super Bowl victory in franchise history.
- The Monday Night Miracle – If you’re one of those fans that turn off the game when your team is losing big time, this game is an example of why you never give up. On October 23rd, 2000, the Jets had the greatest come from behind victory of all time against the Miami Dolphins. Both teams entered the night with a good record of 5-1, but after three quarters it looked like Miami was on the road to another victory with a 30-7 lead. But then all of a sudden the Jets were clicking on all sides and accomplished one hell of a comeback victory!
- The Revenge Game – Let’s face it, the New York Jets against the New England Patriots is always a tough game to watch. If you remember the game when gang green faced off with the Pats in 2011 during the regular season, then you remember seeing your team get destroyed 45-3. That game stung! But the Jets would have an opportunity to get some sweet revenge in a game that mattered most, during the playoffs! Mark Sanchez was able to get his team on the board by throwing three touchdowns which eventually led to a victory for the rival Patriots by a score of 28-21!
