The Patriots and Jets have been competing against each other since 1960, but the rivalry really heated up during the week leading up to Super Bowl XXXI between the Packers and Patriots. New England coach Bill Parcells, whose contract would expire after the game, had been feuding with team owner Bob Kraft for much of the season over how much say Parcells would have over player personnel decisions. The Jets soon hired Parcells as a consultant and agreed to make his top assistant -- Bill Belichick -- the head coach. Kraft filed tampering charges against the Jets. Ultimately, commissioner Paul Tagliabue intervened, awarding four draft picks to the Patriots and allowing Parcells to coach the Jets immediately.
