Curtis Martin ran for 110 yards in the Jets' blowout win over the Panthers in 1998.

Throwback Thursday: New York Jets vs. Carolina Panthers: 1998

For “Throwback Thursday”, we are going to throw it back to one of our favorite years in recent Jets’ history, 1998. The date was November 29, 1998, and it was the first time the Jets and Panthers met in New Jersey.

The Jets were off and running in this one early, literally and figuratively. Down 7-3 in the first quarter, Curtis Martin scored from 60 yards out, and the Jets took the lead 10-7. They never looked back.

Wayne Chrebet caught two touchdown passes from Vinny Testaverde, and Curtis Martin scored one more time in the Jets’ 48-21 route of the Panthers.  The Jets ran their record to 8-4 en route to their 12-4 finish.

Take a look at the box score:
