1982 New York Jets: A Look Back Continues…….


Time to continue our trip 30 years back down memory lane. We have been looking at the 1982 Jets, a team that many argue that if it wasn’t for Don Shula, would have made the Super Bowl. But, we are not to that point yet, as we still have regular season matchups to recap. This week 30 years ago, the Jets travelled to Miami for what proved to be an AFC Championship game preview, as the Jets and their 5-1 record took on the 4-2 Miami Dolphins at the Orange Bowl. Take a look:
