New York Jets, American professional turf football crew situated in Florham Park, New Jersey, that plays in the National Football League (NFL). Behind the play of future Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Namath, the Jets won a noteworthy miracle in the 1969 Super Bowl over the Baltimore Colts. The Jets share a home arena with the New York Giants in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
Built up as one of the establishing groups of the upstart American Football League (AFL) in 1960, the establishment—known as the Titans until 1963—was defaced by monetary battles and athletic average quality as the group contended with the more established Giants establishment in the New York advertise. One of the solitary brilliant spots in the group's initial years was wide recipient Don Maynard, who joined the group in its debut season and would set most major accepting records over the span of his Hall of Fame vocation. In 1963 the newly renamed Jets employed head mentor Weeb Ewbank (who had guided the Colts to titles in the late 1950s) and in 1965 procured Namath, which denoted the start of the group's turn to decency. Known as "Broadway Joe," the renowned quarterback had great looks and occupied with late-night celebrating that won him both loving fans and business supports. Namath's swagger was most notably in plain view when, in the week prior to the 1969 Super Bowl, he ensured a triumph over the vigorously supported Colts of the NFL, which was broadly viewed as the unrivaled professional football league and had effectively taken the initial two Super Bowls. Namath followed through on his guarantee as the Jets vanquished the Colts, 16–7. The Jets' triumph demonstrated that the two leagues were on an equivalent balance, facilitating proprietors' worries before the 1970 NFL-AFL merger.
Namath was deferred in 1977 after a long play-off dry season that started in 1970. Driven by a furious cautious line nicknamed the "New York Sack Exchange," the Jets came back to the postseason in 1981 and progressed to the American Football Conference (AFC) title game the next year. The Jets were discontinuously fruitful all through the rest of the 1980s and the mid 1990s, yet the group encountered its most noteworthy expanded time of accomplishment starting in 1998. That season finished with the Jets—driven by mentor Bill Parcells (who had prior driven the New York Giants to two Super Bowl triumphs) and highlighting running back Curtis Martin and wide collector Keyshawn Johnson—losing to the Denver Broncos in the 1999 AFC title game. The Jets equipped for the play-offs in four of the accompanying eight seasons, however they never really fought in the exceedingly aggressive AFC.
In the late spring of 2008 the Jets exchanged for previous Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre with expectations of improving the club's fortunes, however after a 9–7 season, which was bad enough to qualify the group for the postseason, Favre left the Jets and a new training routine was gotten. In 2009, under new head mentor Rex Ryan, the Jets rehashed their 9–7 record from the past season however this time progressed to the play-offs, where they won two street challenges before eventually tumbling to the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC title game. The accompanying season, the Jets again posted surprise street triumphs in the initial two rounds of the play-offs, yet the group lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC title game. The Jets' fruitful run finished the following season, and the group posted a losing record in 2012. The group's troubles proceeded over the accompanying two seasons, and both Ryan and the group's general administrator were terminated in 2014. New York ricocheted back to win 10 amusements in 2015 yet neglected to fit the bill for the postseason. The group then came back to the base of its division in 2016.
