Jets to Open 2003 NFL Season

The 2002 AFC Eastern Division Champion New York Jets will open the 2003 NFL regular season with an ABC primetime game at the Washington Redskins, on Thursday, September 4 at 9:00 PM ET.

"It's an honor and privilege for the New York Jets to play in the Nation's
Capital, and kickoff the National Football League's season against a
historic franchise, the Washington Redskins," said Jets' Head Coach Herman
Edwards.

The Jets will kick-off the franchise's 44th NFL season by playing their
first-ever season opener on a Thursday. It also marks the Club's first
season opener against Washington.

All-time, the Jets are 1-3 in Washington, with the Club's lone victory
coming in 1993, a 3-0 win. 

For the 33rd time in Club history, the Jets will be opening their season
away from the Metropolitan area.  Since moving to the Meadowlands in 1984,
the Jets have played five season-opening home games.

In two seasons under Edwards, the Jets are 11-5 on the road. 

The complete 2003 schedule will be announced at a later date.
