The New York Jets outperformed the expectations of most people this season, going from four wins in 2014 to winning 10 games in 2015. The turnaround was led by Ryan Fitzpatrick, Brandon Marshall and Todd Bowles’ new defense, which played a huge role in nearly lifting the team to the playoffs.

Chris Ivory started the season as hot as any player in the NFL but he cooled off down the stretch. Still, he rushed for 1,070 yards and seven touchdowns despite starting 14 games. He was honored for his performance on Monday when he was named to the All-AFC team by the Pro Football Writers of America.

Ivory will be a free agent in March and may not be brought back by the Jets. If that’s the case, he put together three strong seasons in New York, eclipsing 800 yards rushing in each season.
