Which Television Characters Are New York Jets Fans?

There was an NFL commercial during Super Bowl XLV featuring well known television characters dressed in the gear of their favorite teams. SB Nation Bay Area compiled a list of which characters wore the gear of which teams.

  • New York Jets: The Sopranos (Tony, Sal, Paulie, Christopher) & Friends (Monica and Phoebe), plus Lily from How I Met Your Mother and I believe Mr. Burns and Smithers from The Simpsons.

I think the Jets finished third in the AFC East in this department. The Patriots had Peter Griffin and the gang from Family Guy. The Bills had Cosmo Kramer from Seinfeld. That is difficult to beat. I do think what the Jets had tops The Golden Girls for the Dolphins, though.

The Jets were sold short a bit. Doug Heffernan from The King of Queens was a Jets fan as is the actor who plays him in real life, Kevin James. He was not featured in the spot, though.

If only the Jets had landed Neil Patrick Harris' character from How I Met Your Mother instead...
