Bill Cowher Likes the New York Jets in the AFC Championship Game

Former Steelers coach and current CBS studio analyst Bill Cowher thinks the Jets are going to defeat the Steelers today.

"Well, I’ll tell you what, Pittsburgh will have some issues this weekend," Cowher said. "The way the Jets are playing, I’m telling you this is going to be a game, I think it will be a classic game, and I like the Jets.

"They made a believer out of me last week with what they did, I think they match up well. I think it’s going to be a tough ballgame, but they certainly have all the ingredients."

This is quite surprising. I cannot remember the coach picking against his former team in the past. I am sure it has happened but not frequently. The Jets actually seem to be getting a little bit of respect.
