Mine has to be the Monday Night Miracle. Jumbo Elliot catching a TD pass. I remember going to sleep late since I live out here on the west coast and couldn't wake up to go to school the next morning.

Penny beating Peyton 41-0 in the Wild Card Game. 

Jets divisional round playoff victory against the Jags - January of 1999. The stadium had such a party-like atmosphere. It was just awesome

There are quite a few of them but the Jets - Packers game December of 1981 ranks way up there. I think they sacked Don Majkowski close to 10 times that game just an overall dominant performance 

You mean Lynn Dickey though we did beat Down majkowski and GB at home 10 years later.

My 2nd favorite has to be when we beat the pats in the playoffs with Sean Green's go ahead TD and the other was spanking Payton Mannings Colts 41-0.

Monday night miracle was great to be at... Never left a game on such a high

Favorite game I went to was last game of 2002.. when we crushed the packers after finding out that the dolphins lost to the patriots in ot after having a 9 point lead in 4 th quarter to give the jets a shot at getting in. The stadium went crazy when that was announced on the jumbo tron than we went out and spanked the packers....after that we crushed the colts. I was at both games. And has to be the best 2 week stretch at that stadium ever

Against the Pats at home ... Moss made a one handed grab right in front of me in the end zone ... And the Jets still handed the Pats a loss.

 

Then Monday night against the Dolphins where the Jets put up over 200 yds rushing and dominated the entire game.

 

Favorite watched ... Monday night Miracle.

Yup, was at both games. 

Best 2 week stretch ever. 

For GB, I remember complete strangers just hugging each other  in the parking lot walking into the stadium and the crowd being just one big love-fest.

Week 14, 1998... Against Seattle. Vinny Testaverde's QB sneak up the middle for the winning td.  Down 28-13 and we came back for the win. It was a great game and really gave me the hope that this team was for real and wasn't going to be Same Old Jets

Too funny, he didn’t score and for once we got a call!

Yes you are correct and I was at that game as well. It was a game where you just knew that there was no way Bart Starrs coached Packers were going to win. The Walt Michaels coached Jets just controlled all facets of the game I believe the Jets win also helped the Giants get into the playoffs  if my memory serves. Other than the Super Bowl winner that was my favorite Jets team excellent D and strong running game boy do I long for those days

At NE, in Brady’s face, after Hard Knocks and Fat Rex and that whole team. 

Best Jet game in decades. 

Yup.  And it has been all downhill since.  I drove out to Pittsburgh for the Championship Game. the following week  Thought we had a real shot at that one.  Does not fit at all in this thread.

My seats were under the overhang on field level, so we had TV's above our seats since we couldnt see the whole scoreboard/videoboard.

 

They were showing the tv feed and we saw the replays on how he didnt make it...  almost everyone in our section saw it and let out a groan as we were just waiting for the refs to change their mind on the spot of the ball...

Man, you look at replays today and he wasn't close.  Lol.  The only thing that broke the plane was the crown of his helmet.

Best game ever live: 1968 AFL Championship game. 6 years old, I thought we'd be in every championship game.

Honorable mentions: November of 1971 vs. 49ers. Namath's return to the field after hurting his knee in a pre-season game against the Lions. Jets went down big when Namath came into the game I think around the 2nd quarter. Jets were down big, but Namath threw 3 TD passes to bring them back down 3, 24-21. End of the game saw Namath throw an INT to end the Jets hopes for the comeback. Other than being there for Joe's comeback, what made this game so memorable was the crowd. My parents had season tix section 10 midway in the upper deck, first time I ever felt the stadium physically moving and shaking. I also remember a bunch of 49ers coming up to Joe after the game to shake his hand. Best Jets loss I ever saw.

Last game of the 1981 season vs. the Packers. Other than the '68 AFL Championship game and the '85 game vs. the Bears at the Meadowlands, the coldest game I have ever been to. By the end of the 3rd quarter, couldn't feel my feet. Didn't care though, as the Jets mauled the Packers to clinch a playoff spot for the first time since the '69 season.

And the one that many I have also cited, the 51-45 win vs. the Dolphins.

Yep, that's one of my earliest Jets memories (I posted that game in the classic clips thread).  The Jets hadn't been to the playoffs since 1969, the Giants since 1963 and the Jets win clinched playoff berths for both.  

Unfortunately they didn't come out ready to play on the same field a week later and a furious comeback fell a few yards short.

We didn't find out there was controversy until turning on the radio leaving the stadium.  For once we got a bad call our way and of course that play is why replay returned.

Jets vs Texans 2010

The people I was with wanted to leave the stadium after Houston scored, and I forced them to stay. Sanchez threw a bomb to Edwards and a beautiful fade to Holmes to win the game. Never seen the stadium so hyped.

 

 

What an incredible drive to win it.  I remember they showed all the people watching outside after leaving the stadium.

I went to both NE and Pitt, it's hard to believe we haven't seen a playoff game since. I remember leaving Heinz Field thinking we have to get one of these championship games at home.  Ugghhh
