SEE IT: New York Jets commemorate 9/11 before season opener

Just across the river from the World Trade Center, the New York Jets marked the 21st anniversary of the September 11th attack Sunday before kickoff on Game 1.

Jets players including Jordan Whitehead, Ty Johnson and Dan Feeney were photographed in “Never Forget” T-shirts Sunday, the rallying cry for the almost 3,000 people killed in the 2001 attacks, before kicking off against the Baltimore Ravens for the first game of the season.

NYPD Officer Brianna Fernandez performed the National Anthem, joined by thousands in the stands at MetLife Stadium, with a field-sized American flag below.

The mic went out after she sang the first few words but the crowd picked up where she left off, resulting in an emotional rendition.

The Jets also held a moment of silence for Queen Elizabeth II, who died Thursday at 96.

At Ground Zero back in Manhattan, Vice President Kamala Harris and husband Doug Emhoff were joined for a commemoration ceremony by Mayor Eric Adams and former Mayor Michael Bloomberg, while President Biden visited the Pentagon, where the third plane crashed.
