Jets Win, Eye on Super Bowl in Miami

by Terry Bender

Die-Hard Dolphins fans will certainly be peeved at this, but I think it is a good thing for the AFC EAST.

The New York Jets beat the San Diego Chargers 17-14, led by a second half surge of scoring after trailing 7-0 at half.  Rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez made many key throws to lead the Jets over the Philip Rivers-led Chargers, who were a 7 point favorite.

This brings us an AFC championship game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Jets, who had a prior game in which the Jets beat Indy to ruin their quest at a perfect season amidst a lot of booing from Indy fans who wanted to make a run at history.

The Jets were led by Shonn Green, the rookie from Iowa, who led a punishing ground attack that was highlighted by a 53 yard touchdown run in the second half that all but sealed the Jets comeback.

In the other game, Minnesota ROLLED the Dallas Cowboys 34-3 behind 4 Brett Favre touchdown passes.

The Super Bowl will be played at Landshark Stadium in Miami, which is always a place that brings plenty of tourism and fans who are willing to shell out thousands of dollars to watch the Super Bowl.
