    Must have been one of the first games when the Jets wore their new Green/White uniforms after the Titan Blue/Gold era ended in 1962.

    One year the Jets had a “jet” on the side of their helmet (I believe), and a golf cart “Jet” used to prowl the sidelines.

    It was a preseason game so the Jets hadn’t put the Jet Plane Logo on their helmets yet. they only had the Jet plane that one year.
