For the second straight season and fifth time in team history, the New York Jets are in the AFC Championship game. It's been a long and somewhat surprising return for Gang Green, attempting to win its first AFC title in 42 years—the only time they won the Super Bowl. The Pittsburgh Steelers, meanwhile, have won seven AFC title games.
