"We are committed to making the team as accessible as possible to our fans," said Matt Higgins, the Jets' executive vice president of business operations.

As a result, fans have unique access and original insights all year long."

"The Jets have been a cornerstone of SNY's programming for the past five seasons and we're excited to continue to provide football fans with an unprecedented level of first-rate, in-depth coverage and original programming dedicated to the Jets."
