The 1980 season didn't come out to be a good one for the team as Jets, after scoring 4-12, finished at the last place in the Eastern Division of AFC. The following season, came out to be the first successful season for the team as they made it in to the playoffs after scoring 10-5-1.
This was team's first appearance in playoffs since 1969. Unfortunately teams come back in to the playoffs didn't really pay off, as the team was facing Buffalo Bills; Todd threw the inception towards Buffalo Bills territory. The match finally ended in favor of Bills.

In the following season the coach of the team was changed to Joe Walton, and in that season team scored 7-9. By the end of the 1983 season, Jets lease agreement with Shea Stadium came to an end. After failed tries of reaching an agreement for the improvements of the Shea Stadium, the Jets finally decided to move to the Giants Stadium in New Jersey.
