If it wasn't for the New York Jets, it's quite possible that the NFL-AFL merger might not have been as well received. When the NFL's Green Bay Packers crushed the Kansas City Chiefs (35-10) and Oakland Raiders (33-14) in the first two Super Bowls NFL Old-school purists scoffed at any notion that the junior AFL could compete with the big boys and anticipated complete carnage in Super Bowl III as the 13-1 Baltimore Colts were 18-point favorites against the Jets.
Brash Jets quarterback Joe Namath guaranteed victory and delivered, leading the Jets to a 16-7 triumph. It remains the only Super Bowl appearance by the Jets, and it arguably remains the most important Super Bowl game in the 50-year history of the event.
Since their glorious 1968 season and Super Bowl win in what was the first playoff appearance in franchise history, the New York Jets have returned to postseason play 13 more times, but they have never returned to glory.
The Jets are 0-4 in AFC Championship Games, losing most recently to the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2010. Along with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New Orleans Saints, they are the only three teams to win their lone Super Bowl appearance.
Only two of their playoff appearances have resulted from AFC East title-winning seasons. The Jets won their most recent division crown in 2002.
