Jets 2014-2015 Outlook
The hope for the New York Jets is that Geno Smith will blossom into the reliable starting quarterback the franchise needs. Eric Decker was a high-profile addition, and Chris Johnson instantly improves New York’s rushing attack.
On defense, the Jets have returned many of the same starters. The difference this year is that everyone is coming into camp healthy and focused on the same goals. If the rest of the AFC East struggles, New York could be a threat to make the postseason.
All New York Jets football games can be seen on one of the following television broadcasts depending on the team they are playing: Fox Sports or CBS for Sunday afternoon games; NBC for Sunday Night games; ESPN for Monday Night Football games and the NFL Network for Thursday night games. Tune into the Jets’ flagship radio station 1050 ESPN Radio - "The Voice of the Jets" on your AM dial to catch each New York Jets football game on the radio.
MetLife Stadium is a sports stadium located at the Meadowlands Sports Complex in East Rutherford, New Jersey, USA. It is the home of the New York Giants and New York Jets of the National Football League and is adjacent to the site of the former Giants Stadium, which was home to the Giants from 1976 until December 2009 and the Jets from 1984 until January 2010. Like its predecessor, MetLife Stadium is the only NFL stadium shared by two teams.
The stadium is owned by the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority on paper. However, the New York Giants and New York Jets jointly built the stadium using private funds, and operate it through the MetLife Stadium Company, a 50/50 joint venture between the two teams. In contrast, the Jets were tenants of the NJSEA at Giants Stadium. The NJSEA continues to provide security and emergency medical services staff under contract to the stadium, as they have done in the past at Giants Stadium. The stadium opened as New Meadowlands Stadium on April 10, 2010, featuring the Big City Classic lacrosse event. In 2011, MetLife, an insurance company based in New York City, acquired the naming rights to the stadium. At a construction cost of approximately $1.6 billion, it is the most expensive stadium ever built and is the 2nd largest stadium in the NFL in terms of seating capacity.
On May 25, 2010, it was announced that Super Bowl XLVIII, to take place in 2014, was awarded to the stadium, the first time a Super Bowl would be played in the New York metropolitan area, and the first time that a non-domed stadium in a cold-weather city would host it.

The New York Jets are a professional football team in the National Football League (the NFL). The New York Jets play in the American Football Conference (AFC) East Division with three other teams: the New England Patriots, the Miami Dolphins and the Buffalo Bills. The New York Jets have won 1 AFL-NFL Championship – Super Bowl III. Giants Stadium, located in East Rutherford, New Jersey, hosts all New York Jets home games.
In 1960, the New York Titans (now the New York Jets) became one of the charter members of the American Football League (AFL). Ownership picked the “Titan” team name in order to mimic the name of the other professional football team that played in the New York City tri-state area. However, the new club did not play anything like a “Giant” as they failed to record a winning season in their first 3 years of existence. Because of that, the team experienced serious financial difficulties until a group headed by Leon Hess and Sonny Werblin purchased the team in March 1963. At that time, the new ownership group moved the team from the Polo Grounds in New York City to Shea Stadium in Flushing Meadows, New York. They also changed the name of the team from the Titans to the Jets, to honor the numerous jets flying over Shea Stadium on their way to and from LaGuardia Airport located right near Shea Stadium. The move to Shea Stadium did not have an immediate positive impact on the franchise, as the New York Jets finished with a 5-8-1 record in each of its first three seasons at Shea Stadium. A .500 season in 1966 led to the franchise’s first winning season in 1967 when the New York Jets finished 2nd in the AFL East with an 8-5-1 record. The New York Jets used that positive 1967 season as a springboard to an AFL Championship and a Super Bowl Championship the following season.
While the New York Jets have only had one AFL-NFL Championship, that Championship held great significance because it was the first time that a team from the AFL defeated a team from the NFL in a Super Bowl Championship Game. In 1968, the New York Jets finished atop the AFL East with an 11-3 record. In the AFL Championship Game, the New York Jets defeated the Oakland Raiders 27-23 behind three touchdown passes by Quarterback Joe Namath, including the game-winning 6-yard touchdown pass to Don Maynard in the 4th quarter to secure the victory. As the AFL Champion, the New York Jets then prepared for the Super Bowl III battle with the NFL Champion Baltimore Colts. And on January 12, 1969, the New York Jets led by “Broadway” Joe Namath pulled off one of the biggest upsets in Super Bowl history when the New York Jets defeated the Baltimore Colts by a score of 16-7. “Broadway” Joe Namath had boldly guaranteed a New York Jets victory in the week leading up to Super Bowl III and most critics gave little credence to such prediction as the Baltimore Colts were favored by as many as 20 points in some gambling circles. “Broadway” Joe Namath’s efficient offense coupled with a stifling defense that forced 5 costly Baltimore Colts turnovers enabled the New York Jets to pull off one of the greatest upsets of all time. With the victory, New York Jets Head Coach Weeb Ewbank became the first Head Coach in professional football to win Championships in both the AFL and NFL. In 1969, the New York Jets finished in a tie for the 1st place in the AFL East with a 10-4 record. In the East Divisional playoff game to determine the AFL East’s representative in the AFL Championship Game, the New York Jets lost to the Kansas City Chiefs 13-6 on a Len Dawson 19-yard touchdown pass in the 4th quarter.
Following the AFL-NFL merger in 1970, the New York Jets struggled in the NFL. The New York Jets did not record a winning season in the NFL until the 1981 season when the New York Jets finished 2nd in the AFC East with a 10-5-1 record. That year, the New York Jets lost to the Buffalo Bills 31-27 in the Wild Card round of the playoffs. In the 1982 strike-shortened season, the New York Jets finished with a 6-3 record and after 2 playoff victories advanced to the AFC Championship against the Miami Dolphins for the first time in franchise history. The Miami Dolphins shut out the New York Jets 14-0, however, limiting the New York Jets to only 139 total yards of offense, and forcing 5 interceptions by Quarterback Richard Todd. From 1983 through 1997, the New York Jets endured another long stretch of poor play. The New York Jets only made the playoffs 3 times during that 15-year span, and the New York Jets never advanced past the Divisional round of the playoffs.
In 1998, the New York Jets finally secured the franchise’s first AFC East title with a 12-4 record. That season, in Head Coach Bill Parcells’ 2nd year as coach, the New York Jets signed Running Back Curtis Martin and veteran Quarterback Vinny Testaverde in the off-season and utilized the solid Wide Receiver duo of Keyshawn Johnson and Wayne Chrebet, to win 10 of the team’s last 11 games and become one of the most dominant teams in the NFL. In the Divisional round of the playoffs, the New York Jets defeated the upstart Jacksonville Jaguars 34-24 to advance to the franchise’s 2nd ever AFC Championship Game against the Denver Broncos. And although the New York Jets enjoyed a 2nd half 10-0 lead in Mile High Stadium, the Denver Broncos outscored the New York Jets 23-0 the rest of the way to secure the 23-10 victory over the New York Jets. The Denver Broncos capitalized on 6 New York Jets turnovers and held Running Back Curtis Martin to only 14 yards rushing. On the other side of the football, Running Back Terrell Davis rushed for 167 yards and a touchdown, while Quarterback John Elway played poorly in his final home game in Mile High Stadium. The Denver Broncos went onto win their 2nd consecutive Super Bowl that year with a 34-19 victory over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl XXXIII. That AFC Championship Game loss would be the last time the New York Jets played in an AFC Championship Game. In 2002, the New York Jets finished atop the AFC East for the 2nd time in franchise history with a 9-7 record. But the New York Jets would lose to the Oakland Raiders 30-10 in the Divisional round of the playoffs.
After a 6-10 losing season in 2003-4, the New York Jets rebounded with a 10-6 record during the 2004-5 NFL season and qualified for post-season play. The New York Jets upset the San Diego Chargers on the road with a 20-17 victory for Herm Edwards. The playoff magic didn't last for too long, however, as the New York Jets lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers 20-17 in the divisional round of the playoffs, bringing the season to a crashing halt. During the 2005-6 NFL season, the New York Jets won only 4 games and Head Coach Herm Edwards resigned from the post to take the head coaching position with the Kansas City Chiefs.
Long-time New England Patriots assistant coach Eric Mangini took over the head coaching position for the Jets. Behind Mangini's innovative schemes and Comeback Player of the Year Chad Pennington's passing, the New York Jets finished with a 10-6 record which was good enough for a 2nd place finish in the tough AFC East. The highlight of the season came when the New York Jets defeated Mangini's former team - the New England Patriots - in the Meadowlands. Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichik refused to shake the hand of his former coach following the game and a feud began between the 2. Belichik ultimately exacted revenge on Mangini and the Jets with a 37-16 victory in the wild card round of the playoffs. This time, Belichik embraced Mangini following the game. Mangini's 2nd year as head coach did not go as well as the first. Pennington was either injured or inconsistent and the Jets offense failed to find its footing throughout the entire season. The Jets won only 4 games in a weak AFC east and the team failed to make the playoffs. And while the New York Jets made significant moves during the 2008 off-season (signing free agent left guard Alan Faneca away from the Pittsburgh Steelers, drafting Linebacker Vernon Gholston in the 2008 NFL Draft, and also signing Linebacker Calvin Pace, Right Tackle Damien Woody, Running Backs Tony Richardson and Jesse Chatman, and Tight End Bubba Franks), the biggest prize came in August, when the New York Jets completed a trade for disgruntled Green Bay Packers Quarterback Brett Favre. Although the team will have many new faces for its September 2008 opener, look for good things to come from this revitalized New York Jets team.
