New York Jets go with some unique attire for Vikings entrance

The New York Jets chose an unusual flight pattern on their way into Minnesota for their Week 13 road matchup with the Vikings: a Flying-V.

Paying homage to the 1992 classic hockey film “The Mighty Ducks”, a gaggle of Jets offensive players strolled into U.S. Bank Stadium wearing jerseys from the underdog squad.

Tight end C.J. Uzomah captioned the scene perfectly, simply uttering, “Jets fly together” as he and the rest of the players in on the bit – quarterback Mike White, receiver Braxton Berrios, and offensive linemen Connor McGovern and Dan Feeney – waddled their way into the visiting locker room.

Not only are the Jets embracing their underdog reputation, but they’re also sending a message to the Vikings that even though they have the home-field advantage, the Jets are the real heroes of the story, as the original “Mighty Ducks” movie is set in the Vikings’ own city of Minneapolis.

Whether the Jets will follow in the Ducks’ footsteps and claim victory for themselves is yet to be seen, but one thing is for sure, these Jets are a team, and a team isn’t a bunch of kids out to win; a team is something you belong to, something you feel, and something you earn.
