Jets back-up talk and smack Pats!

With all the trash-talking going on in the past week, the Jets had to follow it up on the field. They did just that with their swarming defense, and clutch offense. When Jets QB Mark Sanchez needed to, he made big plays. Sanchez threw for three TD’s, had no picks, and got the second highest QB rating (for the playoffs) at 127.3. The Jet’s big D intercepted the ‘invincible’ Tom Brady and sacked him five times. The Jets played great on all cylinders and now are on their way to the AFC Championship game next week!

Jets playmakers: WR Braylon Edwards carried two players in the end-zone for his TD catch, WR Santonio Holmes made an amazing catch in the side of the end-zone for a TD, RB Ladanian Tomlinson had a great TD catch and run, and RB Shonn Greene had a nice 16-yard TD run to end the day.
