The New York Jets are a professional American football team based in the New York metropolitan area. They are members of the Eastern Division of the American Football Conference (AFC) in the National Football League (NFL). The team plays its home games in East Rutherford, New Jersey, at Giants Stadium, which is named after the other NFL team that plays there, the New York Giants. The team's training facility and corporate headquarters, which opened in 2008, are located in Florham Park, New Jersey. Formerly, their headquarters and training facility were located at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York, on Long Island.
The team began in 1960 as a charter member of the American Football League under the name New York Titans. It was renamed after a five-man syndicate bought the team in 1963. The Jets later joined the NFL as part of the AFL-NFL Merger. The Jets hold the distinction of being the first AFL team to defeat an NFL club in an AFL-NFL World Championship Game when they defeated the Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III.
