The Jets vs the Titans: 18 Years Ago

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

Well, not exactly the Jets and the Titans. The Titans were still known as the Houston Oilers 18 years ago. In January of 1994, the Jets took on the Houston Oilers on the final day of the regular season. The Jets came to the Astrodome with an 8-7 record, and the playoffs were still possible. I wanted to take a look back, as this is the game that you probably have heard of. This is the game where Buddy Ryan(Rex’s Dad) and Kevin Gilbride (Giants’ current OC) had a physical altercation on the sidelines. Thank goodness Rex doesn’t get THAT feisty on the sidelines. Here is the footage of the incident for the younger readers that may not have seen it:

Crazy, huh? Here are the results from the actual game that took place:
