NFL to stage AFL
May 5, 2009 (Newsday delivered by Newstex ) --


In honor of the 50th anniversary of the last year of play in the American Football League, the NFL will stage 16 games "legacy games" this season.

The eight original AFL teams ? the Bills , Pats, Chargers, Broncos, Raiders, Oilers (now Titans), Texans (now the Chiefs) and Titans (now the Jets) will all wear historic uniforms at some point this season.

The first legacy game will be the Hall of Fame Game in Canton on Aug. 8 between the Bills and (current) Titans.

The Jets' legacy game will be Week 3 at home against Tennessee.

Game-worn jerseys and AFL memorabilia will be auctioned off by the league throughout the season with the proceeds going to the NFL Player Care Foundation.
