Best New York Jets Betting Sites

It all came down to one game for the New York Jets, a win and go to the playoffs showdown on the final weekend of the season at Buffalo against the [+]

Bills. Beyond that drama, there was so much more that piled on to the intensity of this game. It was the Jets against their old head coach, Buffalo’s Rex Ryan. And it was Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick against one of the many teams that had abandoned him, the Bills. So what did the Jets do with their season, the playoff hopes, on the line?

They did what the Jets almost always do, what’s so come to identify this team when it is on the precipice of greatness. They lost.

The New York Jets were an original AFL franchise in 1960, originally nicknamed the Titans. In 1963 they were renamed the Jets, but the watershed moment in the franchise came in 1965.

That was when the Jets signed Alabama’s Joe Namath, the top quarterbacck prospect coming out of the NCAA. The Jets wouldn’t enjoy their first winning season until 1967 but the following year, Namath took them all the way, winning Super Bowl III 16-7 over the Baltimore Colts.

There you have it. The biggest personnel move in Jets’ history was in 1965. The team’s signature victory came in 1969.

Yeah, it’s tough being a Jets fan.

It says all that you need to know about the suffering that is required as a supporter of the New York Jets when you realize that twice in the past decade, the Jets have played in the AFC Championship Game.

They lost, of course – they are the Jets after all – but what really makes those two games stand out is that over the course of the past 10 years, the Jets really haven’t been very good. With 73 wins, the Jets are tied for 19th overall in the NFL with the Tennessee Titans over the last decade. That’s seven games below .500. That’s not good.

Amazingly, though, in the NFC East it’s second-best behind the 122 wins of the New England Patriots but ahead of the Miami Dolphins (70) and Buffalo Bills (63).

New York Jets Standings Right Now

The up to date AFC standings are listed right here and you can immediately locate where the New York Jets are situated both in the AFC East and in the overall AFC wildcard picture. [+]

Their 10-6 mark in 2015 wasn’t good enough to get the Jets into the playoffs. They were the only NFL team to reach double digits in wins during the regular season and not qualify for postseason play. But it was the first winning season posted by the Jets since an 11-5 mark in 2010, the second year of the Rex Ryan regime.

There’s been a long drought for the Jets in terms of AFC crowns. They haven’t won the division title since 1998 but have made the playoffs six times since then as a wildcard entry, rolling all the way to the AFC Championship Game in 2009 and 2010.

How To Win At New York Jets Betting

Offensively, the Jets turned a triple play in 2015, punching above the NFL average in total offense, rushing offense and passing offense. On the defensive side of the ball they were equally impressive, holding teams below the NFL average while defending both the run and the pass.

The Jets permitted an AFC-low 83.4 yards per game on the ground, second-best in the entire NFL.

One concern for the New York Jets is the age of some of their key skill players. Wide receiver Brandon Marshall set franchise marks for receptions (109) and receiving yardage (1,502) during the 2015 season but he’s also 32 and as great as he’s been throughout his NFL career, it’s fair to wonder about how much greatness Marshall has left in him.

Only 10 players in NFL history have caught 100 passes in a season at age 32 or older and just one receiver has posted a 1,500-yard receiving campaign following his 32nd birthday, the legendary Jerry Rice. 

Likewise, newly-signed running back Matt Forte is 30 and while that might not seem old, it’s getting up there for an NFL ball carrier. Forte put a lot of hard miles on his body as the feature back for the Chcago Bears but one facet he’ll bring to the Jets offense is his ability to catch balls out of the backfield. 

Good prop bets to watch for on the Jets this season will be the number of passes they attempt per game and the number of targets aimed at Forte. Both should be significant. Forte has averaged 80 targets and 61 receptions per season over the course of his career.

The Jets find themselves at a crossroads under center. Ryan Fitzpatrick enjoyed a career year in 2015, but he’s also 33 and a free agent, so is it wise to invest long-term in a journeyman with his sixth NFL team? 

On the other hand, if they don’t, the Jets must choose between the mercurial Geno Smith, who thrust Fitzpatrick into the starting role last season when he suffered a broken jaw in a fight with a teammate, or rookie Christian Hackenberg out of Penn State, their second round draft pick. 

Come to think of it, the Jets once drafted another fellow with Pennsylvania connections who was a quarterback, a fellow out of Beaver Falls, Pa. by the name of Namath. He turned out OK.
