The New York Jets scored two fourth quarter TD’s to win over the heavily favored San Diego Chargers 17-14 Sunday at Qualcomm Stadium, setting them up for the AFC title game against the 15-2 Indianapolis Colts. Head coach Rex Ryan can now stand by his original (what most would have considered overconfident) statements, courtesy of San Diego kicker Nate Kaeding for failing to hit any of his three game field goal attempts.
“We believed the whole time, the whole year, when it probably wasn’t the popular choice,” said Ryan. “We don’t have to apologize to anyone. A matchup that probably nobody wanted, but too bad. Here we come!”
Yesterday’s contest opened with the Chargers in control with a Philip Rivers-Kris Wilson connection for six three minutes into the second quarter. The Jets took over from there in the remaining two blocks, producing a field goal and a pair of touchdowns. Rivers was able to lead his men down field for one more score to make it a three point game. The Jets then came up with the onside kick to eventually solidify the victory.

The New York Jets after a wild road through the 2009-2010 regular season have advanced to the AFC Divisional round where they will face the hottest team in the NFL this Sunday, the 13-3 San Diego Chargers. The veteran Chargers lineup are entering their playoff campaign with an 11-game win streak. In the past two seasons San Diego has advanced with at least four consecutive victories under their belt, only to lose in the first two rounds.
“We’ve been there before. We’ve been the popular pick to win the Super Bowl before and haven’t,” said LB Shawne Merriman. “Our whole mentality this year is completely different, in not looking too far ahead down the road. That’s been the big key this year altogether, is not looking too far down the road.”
The Chargers have been unstoppable lately on the offensive end, but we’ll see how well they can produce against the league’s top ranked defense. “Both teams are carrying a lot of momentum going into this game,” said Jets coach Rex Ryan. “It’s just going to be who can out-execute the other.” Game time is set for Sunday, January 17th at Qualcomm Stadium.
