Jets/Lions Notes

December 15, 2022

Among the NFL games, this 3 games on Saturday week (a week later there is a pretty full Christmas Eve day “card,” but still there are games scheduled on Christmas Day) is one in which the once (5-2) Jets, now (7-6) Jets host the once (1-6) now (6-7) Detroit Lions.

It also is a clash between the only 2 teams, among the 26 in the NFL in ’70, the first season of the NFC/AFC configuration, not to have appeared in any Super Bowl games.

The Jets won a famous Super Bowl after the 1968 season while the Lions, though with 4 NFL crowns, not too far down the list of most such titles, have not played for that crown, since last winning it in 1957.

Among the contingent of excellent players on the ’68 season title winning New York Jets, was George Sauer Jr. pictured above.

5 years earlier in another same calendar/horrible assassination(s) year, Sauer was a member of the undefeated college champion Texas Longhorns.
