III. What was the only NFL game ever played at the renovated Yankee Stadium?

Because Shea Stadium wouldn't allow the New York Jets to play in the facility until after Major League Baseball's Mets had completed their season, the Jets played their 1976 NFL preseason home games at Yankee Stadium.

August 11, 1976 - New York Giants 16 - New York Jets 14

August 13, 1976 - Oakland Raiders 41 - New York Jets 17

August 28, 1976 - Washington Redskins 38 - New York Jets 7

III. Brian In Boston is correct, and thanx for filling me in in the

other three home games the Jets played during the 1976 exhibtion season.

The Jets-Giants game, if I recalled correctly, was called off

in the third or fourth quarter due to tropical

storm winds caused by Hurricane Belle.

I. II. IV. and V. MBurmy had the correct answer to those.
