About New York Jets
History of the New York Jets
The New York Jets joined the National Football League in 1970 as part of the AFL-NFL merger, but they were originally established as a football franchise in 1960. The player that helped sell tickets during the Jets' early season was undoubtedly quarterback Joe Namath. Nicknamed "Broadway Joe," Namath became an icon in New York and quickly became a celebrity. Appearing in commercials and on television, he would help sell more than just Jets tickets, but it was his performance on the field that completed his Hall of Fame resume. The Jets have not been able to return to the Super Bowl since Super Bowl III, but it doesn't stop fans from getting Jets tickets year after year. Playing in the AFC Eastern Division, the fans have plenty of great games to get tickets for every season. The New York Jets play their home games at MetLife Stadium which is actually located in New Jersey, but only eight miles outside of New York City. It is also the home stadium for the New York Giants. It opened in 2010 as the New Meadowlands Stadium but about a year later, MetLife purchased the naming rights to the stadium. It has a seating capacity of 82,500 which is the second largest stadium in the NFL behind the Dallas Cowboy’s AT&T Stadium.
2017 New York Jets Season
The 2017 New York Jets season was the franchise’s 48th season in the NFL and 3rd season under head coach Todd Bowles. The Jets started off the season strong including a three-game winning streak from Week 3 to Week 5. But after Week 5 the Jets only managed to win two more games, finishing the regular season with a record of 5-11. Even though the Jets finished in last place in the AFC East, quarterback Josh McCown had a personal record-breaking season. He only played in thirteen games as he broke his hand during a game against the Denver Broncos in Week 14. But during his 13 weeks as starting quarterback he completed 267 of 397 passes for 2,926 yards, 18 touchdowns, and rushed for 124 yards and 5 touchdowns. His completions, passing yards, passing touchdowns and rushing touchdowns were all single-season career highs. On March 13, 2018 McCown signed a one-year $10 million contract to stay with the Jets. McCown will be back to help his team improve in the 2018 season.
