  • ❗️Denotes a previous NFL record

Joe Namath and Don Maynard lead the way; it’s as obvious as anything when the New York Jets record books are glossed over.

Namath leads the organization in nearly every all-time passing record—other than one. Ryan Fitzpatrick’s 31 touchdowns in 2015 stand as the franchise’s single-season record. It stands out as one of the more interesting records, considering Fitzpatrick’s polarizing nature among the fanbase.

The previously mentioned Maynard isn’t just the greatest wide receiver in Jets history, but he’s also one of the greatest in NFL history. Other than some of the modern records, controlled by Brandon Marshall, who, much like Fitzpatrick, had two extra games to play with, Maynard owns the receiving categories.

None other than Curtis Martin is the man to complete the all-time triplets trio, as his eight seasons in New York put him atop most of the all-time rushing categories.

New York Jets records are richer than the average NFL fan thinks.

For instance, New York Jets legend Joe Namath became the first-ever quarterback to throw for 4,000 yards in a single season in 1967. Remember, both the AFL and NFL played a 14-game schedule then, and the passing game wasn’t nearly as advanced as it is today.

Naturally, Namath tops the Jets’ all-time passing list with 25,057 career yards, with Ken O’Brien comfortably sitting in second place.

Elsewhere, Pro Football Hall of Fame running back Curtis Martin is the organization’s all-time rushing leader, while another Hall of Famer, Don Maynard, is way out in front on the receiving end of things.

Then there are the sacks, as the Jets have enjoyed a rich history of sack masters.

The famed New York Sack Exchange of the early 1980s produced a Mark Gastineau single-season NFL record and a versatile stud in Joe Klecko.

From defensive dominance to high-flying offensive ball, the New York Jets’ record book features a little bit of everything.
