For a team that finished the 2010 regular season with a league-best 14-2 record, the New England Patriots' 28-21 loss to the rival New York Jets in the Divisional Round was a huge disappointment.

The Patriots' defense couldn't stop a nose bleed. The offense missed a huge opportunity to capitalize on a Jets' missed field goal in the first quarter, settling for just three points. And Patrick Chung made a big blunder at the end of the first half to allow a Jets touchdown.
