AFC Championship: Jets at Colts Open Thread

Indianapolis Colts (15-2) vs New York Jets (11-7)
Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis, IN
3:00 PM ET, CBS preview

The 2009 NFL playoffs have been, to this point, overwhelmingly boring. Eight games in, we've only seen two games that I'd consider entertaining - one each weekend - with 10-points-or-higher blowouts everywhere else.

The good news is that today's AFC Championship Game features a team - the New York Jets - that has been involved in one of those games. Last week, they upset the two-seed Chargers in San Diego, 17-14, to make a surprise appearance in today's game. They take on a Colts team that they dominated in Week 16, but let's face facts - our own Bills dominated that same Colts team the following week. Week 16 means absolutely nothing.

This is your open thread for the AFC Championship Game. Enjoy it, pray for a competitive game (or a beat-down of Rex Ryan's ball club, whichever you prefer), and stay classy. We'll have another post up for the NFC Championship Game later this afternoon.
