The New York Jets are a professional American football team in the National Football League (NFL). Founded in 1959, the team began their history as the New York Titans in the American Football League (AFL) before changing their name to the Jets in 1963 and joining the NFL in 1970. The New York Jets have been owned by Woody Johnson (his son Christopher was added as a co-owner in 2017) since 2000. Since the 2010 season, the Jets have been 72-83-6 against the spread (ATS) which is the fourth worst mark in the NFL.
Originally playing in the Polo Grounds in New York, the franchise moved to Shea Stadium in 1964 and eventually moved to where they play today: MetLife Stadium at the Meadowlands Sports Complex in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Despite the move to New Jersey, the Jets have kept New York as a part of their name. The Jets first and only Super Bowl appearance in 1969 was a win behind the famous guarantee from their quarterback “Broadway” Joe Namath. In the 50 years after their Super Bowl victory, the team only made the playoffs 12 times.
