Rex Ryan has made the AFC Championship game in his first two years, but has yet to capture an AFC East Crown.

The New York Jets have been to as many AFC Championship games in the past two years as many times as they've won their division in the past 40. 

Since Joe Namath left, the New York the Jets have only won two AFC East Division titles (1998,2002). Meanwhile, New England has dominated the AFC East the past decade, having won seven of the last eight division crowns. 

Rex Ryan and Co. have strong convictions about the Jets winning the Super Bowl, and they have come within a game two consecutive years. However, coming close is not going to cut it in New York, and maybe the Jets would have advanced to the big game if they could have won their division and played some home playoff games or gotten a bye.

Here are the six keys to the New York Jets winning an AFC East title.
