Original AFL Team With Sporadic Success
The New York Jets were founded in 1959 and were one of the founding teams of the American Football League. They later joined the NFL after the merger and went on to win Super Bowl III in 1968 behind Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Namath.
However, that is the last time that the team has made the Super Bowl. They have made AFC title game four times since then but lost each time. The last time they made the title game was in 2010, and that’s also the last time they’ve made the playoffs.
Since 2010, the team has only one winning record, and the team is presently in the middle of a rebuilding period. However, things could be turning around soon for the team.
Outlook for 2019 and Beyond
The New York Jets are helmed by second-year quarterback Sam Darnold, and he showed strong development during his rookie season. During the offseason, the team picked up former Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell, a move seen by many to be a home run.
The team also signed LB C.J. Mosley, WR Jamison Crowder, and QB Trevon Siemian as a backup to Darnold. These signings along with the Bell signing may result in the Jets improving dramatically in 2019. Based on recent history, it’s hard to give the New York Jets odds to make the playoffs, but they should definitely improve from their 4-12 record.
We estimate that the team will finish somewhere between 8-8 and 9-7 with the team being serious playoff contenders stating in 2020. Of course, if a couple of things go right for the team, they could surprise everyone with a playoff run next year.
