"Hey, Lammons," said one of the Jets after the game, "how many passes did you catch?" Lammons answered, "None." "Well, how many times did they throw to ya?" Without thinking, Lammons said, "None. Wait a minute.... Twice, in desperation."
Despite the pregame resentments and on-field incidents, most of the players were able to praise the abilities of the opposition. "We made mistakes, sure," said one Jet player, "but they took advantage of everything they did. And they knew what we were going to do all the time." And as Norman Snead said, "We both hurt each other a little bit."
But although they were somewhat outclassed, the Jets were not disgraced. "You'll notice," said King Hill, the Eagles' injured quarterback who did not play, "there are a lot of 34-19 scores in the NFL during a season."
