New York Jets back up words with win over New England Patriots

The New York Jets have become known as a scrappy football team with a lot of players and a head coach that like to talk trash. Not only do they talk a lot of trash, but they back it up with a lockdown defense and a much improved offense led by second-year quarterback Mark Sanchez.

Coming into the NFL playoffs, Rex Ryan and company had the odds against them as they were set to face off against four-time NFL MVP quarterback Peyton Manning and the high powered offense of the Indianapolis Colts. Even though the New York Jets have arguably one of the best defenses in the league, the Peyton Manning and his boys were favored to come out on top in this Wild-card matchup as they have played as good as any team in the league in the playoffs.

Fortunately, despite the Jets not having a favorable record against the Jets as of late, New York were able to pull off the slight upset and prove to their doubters that they may be a force to be reckoned with in the postseason.

In the Divisional round of the postseason, the New York Jets had their work cut out for them once again as they would have to face off against their hated division rival New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium as -8.5 underdogs.

The consensus coming into this playoff matchup was that the Patriots would win this battle between AFC East rivals, but the Jets would make a game of it. Even though the game was close throughout most of the contest, the Jets basically dominated Tom Brady and company in this game and came out with an impressive 28-21 win to advance to the AFC Championship Game for the second straight year.
