Four weeks ago, the Jets and Steelers treated us to one of the best games of the regular season, when the Jets went to Pittsburgh and pulled off a come-from-behind upset.
In a week we’ll get to see the same two teams on the same field, with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line.
The AFC Championship Game will be a Jets-Steelers rematch, and it’s a rematch that Jets coach Rex Ryan predicted in his post-game conversation with Steelers coach Mike Tomlin, whom he told, “You know we’ll meet again.”
Ryan may have known that, but the rest of us didn’t know until this weekend, when the Steelers and Jets both gutted out tough wins. We can only hope that both teams bring their A-games again in a week, and give us a game like they had in the regular season.
