The Jets dominated this football game, beating the Colts 44-6. The offense ran up over 500 yards of offense, and the defense held the Colts to just over 300 for the game.

The Jets didn’t look back that season, running their record to a 12-4 mark.

Testaverde was great that day, throwing for 4 TDs, but the story on that game for me was the Jets running game becoming legitimate. The reason was the performance of Curtis Martin.

Curtis made his mark that day, rushing the ball 23 times for 144 yards. He didn’t score that day, but for the first time in a long time, the NFL had to stand up and take notice of the Jets running back. It’s very similar to when the Mets acquired Keith Hernandez in 1983. That day, you knew the Mets were for real.

On this day, and with this performance by Curtis Martin, you knew that the Jets were for real.

Curtis eclipsed 100 yards in the next 3 games in a row, but this is where it started.

Curtis was a Jet that day.
