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

Wesley Walker recorded 7 catches for 169 yards and 1 TD in the Jets playoff win over the Raiders.

We have gotten away from this look back with the search for a general manager and an offensive coordinator going on. Now, with those processes complete, let’s get back to the almost special season of 1982.

Last we left the 1982 Jets, they had beaten the Bengals in the Wild Card game, to move on to the divisional playoff. The date is January 15, 1983, and the Jets travelled to the L.A. Coliseum to face Marcus Allen and the Los Angeles Raiders in the Divisional Playoff. Take a look:
