To the Steel City…AND BEYOND: JETS at Steelers Preview

First, I would like to apologize for a lack of blog posts this week. I just moved into my new apartment at a new school and things have been pretty busy. But now I’m getting back in my groove and am ready to give you all something to read as much as possible.

So here we are again. The “Same Ol’ Jets” are back in the AFC Championship game for a second straight season. There is a much different feel about this title game appearance and I’m sure everyone senses it. The Jets may be three point underdogs, but no one seems to be counting the Jets out this year. At this time last year, the Jets were preparing to face a [healthy] Colts team that should have been undefeated. Jet fans believed they could win it, and on paper it definitely seemed possible, but I would be lying if I said last season was a disappointment even with the loss. Teams are not supposed to be able to go that far with rookie head coaches and rookie quarterbacks, but that team pushed as far as they could.

That is Why the Game is Played: JETS 28 - Patriots 21

“When someone tells you you can’t, you want to do everything you can to prove them wrong.” The Jets’ pilot, Mark Sanchez, expressed his emotions after leading his team to a stunning 28-21 upset victory over their rivals, the New England Patriots, sending them to a second straight AFC Championship game.
