When the New York Jets take on the San Francisco 49ers, it will mark just the 12th time the teams have ever met. The Jets haven't had much success in the series, winning just two of the 11 games played thus far.
Despite the fact that the teams haven't met much in the past, for some reason, the matchup seems to attract significant events in each franchise's history.
Games between the Jets and 49ers have featured Joe Namath on his last legs, Joe Montana in one of his first games and an inexperienced Bill Walsh fighting for his job.
That's not even to mention an NFL record by Jets running back Clark Gaines that still stands today and a franchise record by Garrison Hearst that ended one of the most wild games the Jets have played in the past 20 years.
This weekend, the 49ers come into MetLife Stadium as Mark Sanchez faces off against the 49ers for the first time in his career.
The 49ers are favored over the Jets and figure to be angry after being upset last week by the Vikings. If history is any indication, the Jets and 49ers may just hook up in a memorable affair.
