1978 For the first time since 1963, the Jets changed their uniform design. The team also adopted a new logo and changed the helmet to green. (Feb.27)
1983 Citing Shea Stadium as "rundown, neglected and the NFL's poorest facility for athletes and spectators alike," the Jets announced their plans to move to the Meadowlands for the 1984 season.
1993 The members of the Jets Super Bowl III championship team were reunited at the Jets-Bengals game to celebrate the 25th anniversary season of that historic victory. After a full weekend of activities, they were honored at halftime and then watched the Jets come away with a 17-12 victory.
1998 The Jets look to go back to the future with their "new" logo. In actuality, the Jets returned to their original uniform and logo first worn at the club's inception in 1963 and worn by the team when Joe Namath "guaranteed" their 16-7 victory over the Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III on January 12, 1969. (Feb. 3).
2000 The Jets staged their fourth comeback victory of the season and the most incredible in the franchiseĂ•s 41 seasons as they rallied from a 30-7 fourth quarter deficit to score a 40-37 OT victory over the Miami Dolphins on Monday Night Football at the Meadowlands. The Jets scored a club-record 30 points in the fourth quarter en route to the biggest comeback in team history and only a point shy of NFL mark held by Oakland (twice) and Atlanta. (Oct. 23)
2001 The Jets paid tribute to the victims and heroes of the World Trade Center attacks in a stirring pre-game ceremony. Herman Edwards presented the game ball that the Jets players had to awarded him after his first win as head coach to New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani in the pre-game tribute, televised nationally on ABC's Monday Night Football. The Jets fell to the 49ers, 19-17 (Oct. 1).
