NFL At 100-AP Was There-The Heidi Game
As part of its celebration of its 100th season, the NFL is designating a Game of the Week, each chosen to highlight a classic matchup. For this week, it’s the Raiders-Jets game.
To mark each Game of the Week, the AP is reprinting its original story of a classic matchup in the rivalry. The following is the news story and the game story from Nov. 17, 1968, when the Raiders rallied to beat the Jets 43-32 in an AFL game after NBC cut short the broadcast to show the movie “Heidi” as scheduled at 7 p.m. on the East Coast.
