The New York Jets have played in the conference championship in back-to-back years. They also lost both games and played those two games on the road.

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots stand in their way and don’t look like they’re ready to relinquish their throne. The Patriots have spent the offseason adding veterans like Chad Ochocinco, Albert Haynesworth and Shaun Ellis.
The Jets haven’t had a quiet offseason, either, but most of their efforts were spent re-signing their own and letting go of older veterans. While the Jets probably aren’t better on paper than last year, that doesn’t mean they don’t have a shot to dethrone the Patriots.
