WATCH: Jim Kelly And Joe Namath Trade Barbs In Hilarious TNF Opening Segment

Bryan Altman

Joe Namath and Jim Kelly are absolute legends in Buffalo and New York, respectively, and the two likely have an immense amount of respect for everything the other accomplished in their illustrious career on the gridiron.

That was not evident in a hilarious Thursday Night Football opening segment featuring the two Hall of Fame quarterbacks before the Jets and Bills squared off in Week 2.

The two were merciless in their attacks on the others' franchise. Namath with the 'wide right' jokes, Kelly ripping on the Jets losing to the Bills at the end of last year.

Heck, the two quarterbacks' daughters even got in on the fun.

The whole thing was downright hilarious and well worth a watch. That and it was a perfect way to kick off a fierce rivalry game between the Jets and the Bills on Thursday night.

Bryan Altman is, for some reason, an unabashed fan of the Rangers, Jets and Mets. If he absolutely had to pick a basketball team it would be the Knicks, but he'd gladly trade them for a championship for any of his other three teams.
