UPDATED AND EXPANDED FOR THE 2017 NFL SEASON: Top 10 bars to root for the New York Jets if you can't watch the game at MetLife Stadium. Please comment on them and feel free to recommend others. Please submit fan photos at sports bars to liven up this post!

The New York Jets are one of two professional American football team located in the New York metropolitan area. The Jets compete in the American Football Conference (AFC) East division of the National Football League (NFL).

The Green Gang share MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, with the New York Giants of the NFL’s National Football Conference.

The New York Jets were founded in 1959 as the Titans of New York. They were a charter member of the American Football League (AFL). The team joined NFL then the two leagues merged in 1970.

The Jets advanced to the playoffs for the first time in 1968 and went on to compete in Super Bowl III, defeating the Baltimore Colts. This was the Jets’ only Super Bowl appearance.

The New York Jets have appeared in the playoffs 13 times since 1968. They have won he AFC Championship four times, most recently in 2010, losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

This list has to be highly selective – and a bit arbitrary. Let's face it. You could walk into any neighborhood bar in the five boroughs of New York City and find the Jets on television come Sunday. Either that or the Giants.

But interestingly, my research indicates that at least two of the top sports bars for New York Jets fans are not even located in the Big Apple. Can you guess where they are?
