AFC Playoff Preview – Jets @ Colts

In a rematch of last year’s conference championship game, the sixth-seeded Jets visit a Colts club that has reached the playoffs for a ninth straight season.  The Colts overcame numerous injuries to make it to the post season and now face a Jets team that seeks revenge from last year’s AFC Championship game.  The Colts went on to lose the Super Bowl to the Saints.

Indianapolis’ nine straight playoff appearances ties a record set by the Dallas Cowboys from 1975-83.  While the Colts are not the same team they were last year as a result of injuries, the Jets will still have their hands full with a Peyton Manning led offense.  New York’s defense certainly has the swagger and chirp to convince you they will stop Manning but as we have seen from earlier in the season the Jets bark can be louder than their bite.

Colts are -3 point favorites with the O/U set at 45
