New York Jets records and leaders information at Jets X-Factor

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.
