The New York Jets are holding Fan Appreciation Day for the game vs. Buffalo at the Meadowlands on Sunday at 1 p.m. The team is encouraging all fans to wear their Jets green gear to create a "Green Out" at the game. Prizes and giveaways will be distributed throughout the game and one fan will be chosen at random to kick a field goal at halftime for $150,000. Fan Appreciation Day is brought to you by SportsNet New York (SNY). Get more details at Eric Allen's blog announcing the details of gameday activities.
