History

The New York Jets are members of the NFL’s American Football Conference and were founded in 1959 as original members of the upstart American Football League. The franchise’s original owner was Harry Wismer, who had previously been a minority owner of both the Washington Redskins and Detroit Lions of the NFL.  

The club began play in 1960 at the Polo Grounds and were called the Titans of New York. In 1963, the team moved into the newly constructed Shea Stadium and changed their name to the New York Jets. The name was selected due to the abundance of air traffic which flew over Shea Stadium.

The club struggled on the field for much of its early existence; the Jets would not have their first winning season until 1967. However, the very next season, quarterback Joe Namath would lead the Jets to an upset win over the NFL’s Baltimore Colts in the Super Bowl. Namath famously guaranteed the Jets to win the game and then delivered on the field. The win by the Jets helped to solidify the AFL as a legitimate contender to the more established NFL. The two leagues would merge into one in 1970.

Namath’s career would become plagued with injury during the 1970’s and the Jets would struggle on the field. They would not qualify for the post season until 1981, when they made it to the AFC Championship game where they lost to the Dolphins.

In 1984, the club moved into Giants Stadium located in New Jersey, which it would share with the New York Giants. The franchise fell into mediocrity during the mid 1980’s; between 1986 and 1997, they made the playoffs on just two occasions. The slump included a 1996 season which saw the team win just one contest.

In 1997, the Jets hired head coach Bill Parcells, who won Super Bowls with the Giants in 1986 and again in 1990. In 1998, under his guidance, the club had their best season since the AFL/NFL merger, finishing with a 12 to 4 record. They made it to the AFC Championship game before losing to Denver.

During the 2000’s, the Jets had the most success in team history. They would qualify for the playoffs on five occasions and appear in the AFC Championship game in both 2009 and 2010. However, the club has yet to make an appearance in the Super Bowl since their 1968 upset victory.
