TDIF: Jets Set Franchise Record For Most Points in Game

New York Jets, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, TCIPF Staff, This Day in NFL History, Uncategorized

On this date in football – Nov. 17, 1985 – the New York Jets not only set a franchise record for most points in a game, but also had one of the highest scoring first halves in NFL history.  At halftime, the Jets had taken a 41-21 lead against the Buccaneers, thanks in part to their quarterback Ken O’Brien – who had passed for four touchdowns.

O’Brien’s fifth touchdown pass in the second half capped off an outstanding offensive effort in the Jets’ victory; their franchise record 62 points in a game still has yet to be broken.  Here’s a look back at the high-scoring affair, as originally presented in “Inside the NFL.”
