Notable matchups in Jets-Jaguars history below:
2011 Week 2 Home WIN 32-3 - There's not much to say other than the Jets roasted toasted and most-ed the helpless Jags. This game is noteworthy for several reasons: It was Blaine Gabbert's first introduction into the NFL regular season after Luke McCown got the hook and the Jets largest victory .
Notable: Sanchez went 17-24 2 TD's and 2 INTs. Keller went for 102 yards and a TD and Greene only had 49 yards rushing with a TD. Also the Jets D collected 4 picks including two for Cro.

Time to start giving the game away.... right on schedule...
2009 Week 9 HOME LOSS 22-24: This game the Jets had a lead most of the game only to let it slip away in the last minute. The play that killed us was Kerry Rhodes blowing a coverage for a huge gain. Notable play: MJD taking a knee at the one to set up the game winning field goal.
Notable: Sanchez was 16-30 with 1 TD and 2 INT's.
Best comment from the after game thread:
Sanchez to me often looks frantic. He’s just not calm and cool, he’s overwhelmed. And I really worry about his height. I know it’s early, I just don’t see him ever being a top 10 QB in the league. (how prophetic)
2006 Week 5 AWAY LOSS: 41-0: The score says it all. I'm not even going to recap the game because: ouch.
1998 PLAYOFFS HOME WIN! : 34-24. Our first and only playoff appearance vs the Jags. Vinny Testerverde threw for 284 yards and Curtis Martin ran for over 120 yards and 2 TD's to beat the less gray Mark Brunell led Jags. This set up the matchup with the Denver Broncos for the AFC championship game.
Interesting footnote: The Jets coaches that year included: Mr Hoodie up north, Al Groh, Charlie Weis, Romeo Crennel and Todd Haley. All would become head coaches in the NCAA or NFL.
1995 Week 3 HOME WIN 27-10: Not only was this the first matchup between the expansion Jags and the NY Jets. It was one of 3 wins that year under Rich Kotite. Former QB and current radio talkshow personality Boomer Esiason threw for nearly 300 yards and 3 TD's. Don't ask me how we were also favored that game.
Notable: This was also the first game a very young Sp0rtsfan86 attended with his dad, uncle and grandfather. Little did he know how much torture they would provide.
