New York Jets Panoramic Picture - MetLife Stadium Panorama
This panorama spotlights the exciting action, as the New York Jets play their regular season opener at home in front of a sold out crowd. The Jets honored 9/11 First Responders and Tuesday's Children Chorus sang the National Anthem. Representatives from the NYPD, the FDNY, the PAPD and Stephen Siller Foundation served as honorary captains during the coin toss. As an original member of the America Football League, the Jets were established in 1959 and began as the New York Titans. Four years later, the franchise was sold for $1 million to a five-man syndicate. The new owners changed the name from Titans to Jets and chose the team colors of green and white to reflect the spirit of the times and the Jet Age.
