Jets Are Goin’ Down – To Pittsburgh

The Jets pulled off the biggest upset of the playoffs this season by beating the mighty Patriots at their own place. They talked the talk all week. On Sunday, the Jets walked the walk.

The New England Patriots are 16-0 in Foxborough over the last two seasons in the regular season.  The Pats are 0-2 at home over the last two seasons in the playoffs.

The Jets did several things well which enabled them to beat the Patriots 28-21 on Sunday.  Mark Sanchez was solid with three touchdown passes.  Sanchez is now 4-1 in 5 career postseason games.  He has been clutch in his postseason career.

Santonio Holmes made an unbelievable touchdown catch to give the Jets a 21-11 lead with 13:06 remaining in the 4th quarter.  Santonio Holmes, Braylon Edwards, and Jerricho Cotchery all had solid performances.

The Jets’ defense came up big by sacking Tom Brady five times.  David Harris recorded an interception against Tom Brady in the 1st quarter as well.

The Jets won the special team battle.  Antonio Cromartie consistently set the Jets up with good field position by returning kickoffs.  The Jets successfully recovered two onside kick attempts by the Patriots in the final two minutes.

Cromartie recovered the first onside kick attempt and returned the ball to the Patriots’ 25-yard line.  That set up Shonn Greene’s 16-yard touchdown run which put the Jets up 28-14.

The Jets also prevented the Patriots from executing a fake punt just before halftime.  It led to a Braylon Edwards touchdown reception which gave the Jets a 14-3 lead at halftime.

The Jets executed better than the Patriots.  They kept New England off balance and out-of-sync all day long.  They walked the walk on Sunday and deserve the opportunity to play Pittsburgh for the right to make it to the Super Bowl.
