The Patriots were favored by 9 1/2 or something like that, but the Jets proved once again that the games still have to be played.  They beat Bill Bellicheat and his pretty-boy quarterback to win the right to face Pittsburgh for the AFC Championship.

This is the first time in franchise history that they’ve been to back-to-back championship games and the only time since at least 2001 that a team has beaten both the Colts and the Patriots in back-to-back weeks.

Jets fans are good at doing adversity.  We’re used to it.  I fully expected Gang Green to lose today, so I am ecstatic at the win.   Can they win next week, or do I have to tell Steeler fans that “I’m just happy to be here.”?
