Jets fly together.
Quarterback Mike White and some of his teammates arrived at Sunday’s game against the Vikings in Minneapolis wearing jerseys from “The Mighty Ducks” movies.
White was rocking a Charlie Conway captain jersey as he and four teammates made their way to the visitors’ locker room, video captured by SNY shows.
Tight end C.J. Uzomah was wearing an Adam Banks jersey in white, similar to White’s Conway sweater. Offensive linemen Connor McGovern and Dan Feeney were wearing green Ducks jerseys, while wide receiver Braxton Berrios wore a black Hawks jersey, sporting a top of the Ducks’ rival.
The jersey coordination comes a day after several Jets players wore “Mike F’n White” T-shirts for their flight to Minnesota on Saturday.
The 27-year-old White became the toast of the town again after his nearly flawless performance last Sunday while leading the Jets to a win over the Bears, days after head coach Robert Saleh decided to bench Zach Wilson, last year’s No. 2 overall pick.
White went 22-for-28 with 315 yards, three touchdowns, and no turnovers in the 31-10 romp, earning him another start on Sunday against the 9-2 Vikings, a step up in competition from the 3-9 Bears.
White had a similar moment last season when he led the Jets to a stunning win over the Bengals. He followed with a brief strong effort against the Colts before leaving injured. White crashed back to earth the following week, throwing four interceptions in a blowout loss to the Bills.
Sunday will go a long way to determining whether White can keep flying this time around.
