The 1975 New York Jets season was the 16th season for the team and the sixth in the National Football League. It began with the team trying to improve upon its 7-7 record from 1974 under head coach Charley Winner. The Jets failed to do so, and finished with a record of 3-11, the worst in franchise history at the time. This would be the first of three consecutive 3-11 seasons, as they would repeat this win-loss record in 1976 and 1977. They tied the New England Patriots for last place in their division, the AFC East, but were awarded fourth place by virtue of their head-to-head sweep over the Patriots during the season.

The Jets' pass defense surrendered 8.12 yards-per-attempt (including quarterback sacks), the second-most in NFL history.[1][note 1]
