1960-1962 New York Titans, 1963-present New York Jets
The franchise began as the Titans in the American Football League in 1960. The team changed its nickname to the Jets in 1963. New York's high point of their AFL days came with a stunning upset of the NFL's Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III. The team returned to the postseason often during the 1980s and then in 1998 won its first AFC East crown.
