The Jets and the (baseball) Mets have traditionally been the scrappy underdogs in this town, playing second fiddle to the senior teams in their league and occasionally putting together a year of heart-stopping success.
Head coach Rex Ryan brought enthusiasm and swagger to the franchise when he joined in 2009. The 2009 Jets went 9-7 in the regular season and won 2 playoff games.
2010 was another good season for the Jets, with an 11-5 regular season record and 2 more playoff wins, but the team dropped to 8-8 in 2011 (and missed the playoffs for the first time in Rex Ryan's tenure), and then limped to an embarrassing 6-10 finish in 2012.
In 2013, Jets fans (they are the ones screaming "J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets" 24/7) expect Gang Green to overcome the "team chemistry" issues of last couple of seasons, and to be flying high once again.
IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO BUY SINGLE GAME TICKETS TO WATCH THE JETS. The seats are sold almost exclusively as season tickets and in other multi-game sets. So....if you are interested in seeing a Jets game this season, you might want to consider premium tickets, which are sold at market prices, generally well above face-value.
The Jets play in MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, which they share with the Giants. Public transportation is available to the MetLife Stadium (which is in New Jersey). Read more here
