The Jets' Six Best Wins And Worst Losses
The Best Wins
1. Jets defeat Colts 16-7 on January 12, 1969 to win Super Bowl III.
2. Jets defeat Raiders 27-23 on December 29, 1968 to win the AFL Championship and advance to the Super Bowl.
3. Jets defeat Jaguars 34-24 on January 10, 1999 to advance to the AFC Championship, in Bill Parcells' only Jets playoff victory.
4. Jets defeat Raiders 17-14 on January 15, 1983 to advance to the AFC Championship.
5. Jets defeat Chargers 17-14 on January 17, 2010 to advance to the AFC Championship.
6. Jets defeat Bengals 44-17 on January 9, 1983 for their first playoff win since Super Bowl III.
The Worst Losses
1. Jets lose the AFC Championship to the Broncos 23-10 on January 17, 1999. With a mediocre Falcons team stunning the Vikings in the NFC Championship, this loss blew the Jets' best opportunity to win a second Super Bowl.
2. Jets lose the AFC Championship (a/k/a Mud Bowl) to the Dolphins 14-0 on January 23, 1983. 27 years later, it remains inexplicable that Walt Michaels was forced to resign shortly thereafter and never coached in the NFL again.
3. Jets lose in the second round of the playoffs to the Browns 23-20 on January 3, 1987, blowing a 10 point lead in the final minutes.
4. Jets lose in the second round of the playoffs to the Steelers 20-17 on January 15, 2005, a loss that epitomized Herm Edwards' insistence on playing not to lose - soundbites and book titles to the contrary notwithstanding.
5. Jets lose the AFC Championship to the Colts 30-17 on January 24, 2010.
6. Tie: A) Jets lose to Kansas City Chiefs 13-6 on December 20, 1969. Joe Namath would never play another playoff game.
B) Jets lose to Buffalo Bills 31-27 on December 27, 1981, in their first playoff game since the '69 loss.
