The 1980 New York Jets season was the 21st season for the team and the 11th in the National Football League. It began with the team trying to improve upon its 8–8 record from 1979 under head coach Walt Michaels, and being widely predicted to improve further and reach the postseason for the first time since 1969.[1] The Jets finished the season with a record of 4–12.

During the season, the Jets were the only team to lose to the notorious New Orleans Saints team, dubbed the “Aints”. On a day with a wind-chill temperature of 5 °F (−15 °C) and kicking with a gale of 46 miles per hour (74 km/h), the Jets failed to hold onto a 7–13 lead after three quarters,[2] losing by a single point, 21–20,
