In anticipation of this weekend’s pre-season game against the New York Giants above is an image from the very first time these two teams met on Aug. 17, 1969, at the Yale Bowl. The image shows Jets’ hall of fame quarterback Joe Namath handing the ball off to running back Emerson Boozer. The Jets won the game 37-14, and finally held bragging rights over a city that previously belonged to the Giants. The two teams have met every year in pre-season since that day in 1969.
