It’s Sunday night, and the Best Jets Team Ever Tournament enters the second round. Coming off of a win against their 2010 counterparts, the 2009 Jets did battle against the number 1 seeded 1968 New York Jets. Joe Namath and his team were ready, to the game we go.
Midway through the first quarter, the Super Bowl champs opened the scoring. Set up by a 32 yard Emerson Boozer run, Jim Turner connected from 36 yards out to put the 1968 Jets up 3-0. Later in the quarter, a 45 yard Matt Snell run put the 1968 Jets in business deep in 2009 territory. 3 plays later, Joe Namath found Don Maynard in the endzone from 15 yards out to put the 1968 squad up 10-0.
A quiet second quarter, with only a Jay Feely field goal, brought the half to an end with the 1968 Jets leading the 2009 Jets 10-3.
