Super Bowl Playoff History Of New York Jets

January 6, 2011

In the history of their franchise the New York Jets have recently qualified for the playoffs for the 14th time. The majority of the team’s playoff appearances have been in the last two decades, while the franchise has been in existence since the year 1960.

On Saturday, the Jets play the Indianapolis Colts and are favorites in NFL betting super bowl odds.

In the NFL on the a regular basis the Jets have become one of the best teams as they have qualified for the playoffs 6 times since the beginning of the 21st century. They have not been able to have the type of success in the playoffs that they’d hope for, even as they have really turned things around as of late.

Since the Jets last made their way to the Super Bowl it has been more than 40 years. In the times of the AFL, that Super Bowl appearance actually came. The Jets thus qualified for the Super Bowl against the winners of the NFL Championship as they managed to win the AFL.

By the famous Joe Nam the Jets were led to Super Bowl. In what is one of the classic football games of all time, the team managed to win the Super Bowl behind Namath.

The fans of the Jets had little to cheer for after that time. Even though they did manage to turn things around in the 1980’s, they did not make the playoffs at all in the 1970s. The Jets left a foundation for the team to build up to what it is today as they qualified for the playoffs 4 times in the 1980s.
