This is it! This is the game Rex Ryan and the Jets have wished for since the 45-3 monstrosity of Week 13—a chance for redemption in the postseason where it's win or go home.
As the saying goes: be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it. And the Jets got it!
On Sunday, January 16th, the Jets and the Patriots will suit up and go to battle for the third time this season with an AFC Championship berth on the line. The story lines leading up to this showdown are the same as the previous two:
Rex is running his mouth; Belichick has given nary a soundbite
Tom Brady has been his cool, calm and collected self; Mark Sanchez has been humble.
Antonio Cromartie gave us his true feeling about pretty-boy Brady.
But in the end, it all boils down to who has more points on the scoreboard after 60 minutes.
The Jets made a small statement by defeating the Colts and backing up some of Rex's bravado, but this game... the Jets are all in! A win on Sunday will be a big "I told ya so" for Rex and all his talks of being Super Bowl-bound will not seem so far-fetched anymore.
Here are five reasons the Jets will win and five reasons the Jets will lose this Sunday.
