Indianapolis' blowout victory means the Jets cannot host the AFC Championship Game. That means there will be no more home games for Gang Green at the old stadium at the Meadowlands. The Playoff clinching 37-0 victory over the Bengals Week 17 will go down as the final contest, not a bad way to go out.
For the Jets to go to the Super Bowl, they will have to win in Indianapolis for the second time in five weeks. Let's not get ahead of ourselves, though. First the Jets have to end the Chargers' eleven game winning streak on their home field. That won't be easy.
Nobody ever said this would be easy. We won't have anything to complain about if Gang Green can somehow knock off the Chargers. Who cares where the AFC Championship is if the Jets are in it? If we can look forward to another trip to Indiana this time tomorrow, it will be the first time in my life I can honestly say I'll be happy the Jets are facing Peyton Manning.
