The NY Jets are just days away from participating in this year's Hall of Fame Game. The annual tradition will kick off the NFL's preseason and mark a little over a month until the regular season begins.
This will be the third time the Jets have appeared in the Hall of Fame Game since the event's inception in 1962. The first time the Jets played in the Hall of Fame Game, they fell short against the Chicago Bears in a 20-6 loss back in 1977.
Their fortunes turned around, however, 15 years later when the Jets defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 41-14 in the 1992 edition of the game. 31 years later, the Jets will return to Canton.
With Darrelle Revis and Joe Klecko set to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this weekend, this is undoubtedly a historic week for the Jets' organization. Here is everything you need to know about this Thursday's Hall of Fame Game.
