Heeding the requests of both the Jets organization and its fans, the NFL has moved kickoff of the game vs. the Tennessee Titans on September 27th from 4:15 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. This will allow fans to go to the game and hopefully (traffic notwithstanding) make it home in time for the start of the holiday at sundown.
The home opener against the Patriots on September 20th, the second day of Rosh Hashana, remains as scheduled.
The team issued the following statement from its owner, Woody Johnson: "By changing the time of the Tennessee game from 4:15 p.m to 1 p.m., the NFL has provided the best compromise to resolve our scheduling conflict. I want to thank Commissioner Goodell and Howard Katz for quickly responding to our request to accommodate our fans of Jewish faith."
