Marcus Maye had a nice rookie season, establishing himself and Jamal Adams as one of the most promising young safety tandems in the NFL. Hopefully this breaks a string of disappointing second round picks by the Jets.
Erik Coleman was only a fifth round pick but jumped straight into the starting line-up with four interceptions and two sacks as a rookie. He was a four year starter with the Jets.

26 on the scoreboard
Three memorable overtime wins from team history have seen the Jets win 26-20. Eric Decker, Santonio Holmes and Emerson Boozer scored the winning touchdowns as the Jets beat the 2015 Giants, 2010 Browns and 1974 Giants.
