New York Jets Tickets
New York Jets Tickets - Description
The New York Jets began life as the Titans, but the new owners changed the name to the Jets in 1963. The Jets started in the American Football League. The team joined the National Football League when the AFL and NFL merged in 1970. The Jets played at the famous Polo Grounds and subsequently relocated to the Meadowlands in 1984. The franchises greatest glory came during the 1969 season when the Jets defeated the heavily-favored Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III behind quarterback Joe Namath. The Jets were the first AFL team to defeat an NFL team during an NFL/AFL World Championship Game.
What to expect at a New York Jets Game
Even the chatter of the city can’t drown out New Meadowlands Stadium when the Jets take the field. Originally a member of the AFL, the 1968 Super Bowl champions host every game with an explosive energy. To fully capture the Jets game experience, head to the big apple before the game and check out The Museum of Modern Art, the New York Hall of Science or just hop on the nearest tour bus. When the game is over, recount every epic play at one of New York’s thousands of nightspots.
New York Jets at New Meadowlands Stadium
New Meadowlands Stadium, the largest and most expensive football venue ever constructed, opened its doors in April of 2010. The stadium is shared by the New York Jets and the New York Giants, whose former Giants Stadium was deemed to be inadequate for both teams' growing needs. Noted for its capacity of 82,566 guests and its dedication to the usage of ecologically friendly materials, New Meadowlands Stadium has been praised for its modern approach to sports event accommodation.
New York Jets 2011 Team Outlook
A killer defense and a great running game led the Jets to a second-place finish in the AFC Championship last year for the second year in a row. They only allowed 304 points during the season, and they held their opponents to 20 points or less in 12 out of 16 games. Rushing yards were strong as well at 2,374, and quarterback Mark Sanchez made great strides with 17 touchdowns, 3,291 passing yards and 13 interceptions. In the 2011 draft, the team made an excellent pick with Muhammad Wilkerson, who should strengthen their defense even more. The Jets should make it to the AFC Championship again this year, and if Sanchez can work on his consistency issues, they may have a shot at the Super Bowl.
