New York Jets At Indianapolis Colts: Time for Revenge

When the Jets were knocked out of the AFC Championship Game last year, they dedicated their off-season to structuring a team that could beat the team who ended their season, the Indianapolis Colts. They now receive their chance to go back to where their season ended nearly 12 months ago and get revenge. Make no mistake, this Jets team is better than the one who lost to the Colts last January and this Colts team isn't as good. However, have the Jets made up enough ground? Most people don't seem to think so, as the Jets are currently 3 point underdogs and many early prognosticators are leaning towards the Colts.

Throughout the week, we will compare each unit of the team starting with the offense tomorrow, followed by the defense on Wednesday, and special teams on Thursday.  Friday we will offer some final observations and a prediction for Saturday night.

For now, here a few nuggets to boost your confidence about the Jets chances against Indy --

  • Mark Sanchez played one of the best games of his career in Indianapolis during the AFC Championship Game. He is also miles ahead of where he was at this time last year.
  • This is the amount of points the Colts allowed their last seven games: 31, 36, 38, 28, 24, 26, 20.
  • The Colts are banged up in the secondary, as they were last year when they had a tough time defending Braylon Edwards and Jerricho Cotchery, the Jets have now added Santonio Holmes.
  • No Austin Collie. No Dallas Clark.
  • Antonio Cromartie starting opposite Darrelle Revis instead of Dwight Lowery.
  • Kerry Rhodes was torched in last year's AFC Championship Game. He is now playing golf in Arizona.
