Jets Don't Deny Wanting Payback On Colts

In opening our coverage of Saturday's AFC wild-card weekend matchup between the New York Jets and Indianapolis Colts, Joe Caporoso talked about how the Jets have waited nearly a year for an opportunity to avenge last season's AFC Championship Game loss to Indy. The Jets don't need to be reminded about last season.

"It's a great matchup for us. It really is. We beat them once last year, they beat us when it really counted and that's hard. That's a tough feeling, going home after a playoff game, (getting) all the way to the AFC Championship game, having the lead at halftime and then coming up short," said Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez. 

Jets coach Rex Ryan does not deny having payback in mind.

"That's the way it is. If you are a competitor, that's how you feel. I know that's how I feel. It's a lot easier to dream about it, talk about it and think about it so we have to just go out and do it now," Ryan said. "We'll see if it's a different outcome. I believe it will (be different). We are not taking anything away from Indianapolis. They are a (great) football team with one of the best quarterbacks in the history of the sport and two great pass rushers."
