With six teams remaining in the 2011-2012 playoffs there is still potential for the Jets to be involved in a streak of there own that has been running for the past two years now. For the past two years straight the Jets have lost to both teams that went on to make it to the Super Bowl.
Two years ago they lost to the Saints in week four 24-10, and then fell in the AFC Championship Game to the Colts 30-7 in the AFC Championship Game. Last year they lost to the Packers in week eight 9-0, and then lost to the Steelers in the AFC Championship game 24-19. It is obviously just an odd little coincidence but it could hold true again this year.
If the Ravens beat the Texans today, which is probably going to happen, then the Jets will have lost to the AFC representative in the Super Bowl. The NFC is definitely a little tougher, with the Giants, Packers, and 49ers remaining. Obviously the only way the streak can stay alive is if the Giants beat both the Packers and the 49ers. I think the Giants definitely have a shot at beating Green Bay today. The Giants almost did it earlier this year, and if they can generate pressure on Rodgers while still keeping a lot of guys in coverage, just like what San Francisco did yesterday to Drew Brees, they can definitely win, and keep the streak alive.
