Jets win AFC wild-card game

The Jets had reason to celebrate, backing up coach Rex Ryan's talk that they're playoff worthy while the Cincinnati Bengal fans haven't seen their team win a playoff game in almost two decades,this year their hopes were blown away by the Jets.

Cincinnati got on the board first on a touchdown catch by former Jets wide receiver Laveranues Coles in the 1st quarter...but running back Shonn Greene got the Jets even with a touch down run in the 2nd quarter. Also in the second quarter Dustin Keller scored one touchdown and had 99 receiving yards.Jets Thomas Jones was held to just 34 yards rushing on 15 carries, but did make his way in for a nine-yard touchdown in the third quarter. And in the fourth quarter Cedric Benson made it interesting with a 47-yard touchdown run that cut the lead to 21-14. Benson had an exceptional day with 169 yards.

Carson Palmer completed 18 for 36 passes for 146 yards and one interception.

Mark Sanchez didn't have huge numbers, completing 12 of 15 passes for 182 yards and a touchdown in the game, but he knew how to hand off to New York Jets running backs Thomas Jones and Shonn Greene. Sanchez didn't turn the ball over once. He became the fourth rookie quarterback since 1950 to start and win a playoff game.

Mark Sanchez shows he's ready to take on either the Colts or Chargers as the rookie runs off the field at the end of the Jets 24-14 win.

James Sanders, Safety for the New England Patriots On Ray Rice's opening drive touchdown run "It was very disappointing to start the game off that way with that kind of run and to give them that much momentum ... can't play that way in the playoffs and expect to go anywhere. I don't know exactly what happened, but it couldn't have been right because he came through untouched and went the distance. He's a good running back, but to give him a lane like that, you can't say anything about it."

When did Ray Rice know the first play would be more than a 5-yard run
"As soon as I got the cutback, the safety was about 15-to-20-yards deep. Once I got there and got on their back, they had already done their job already. That's any running back's dream. I made that first guy miss and after that it was a foot race. I keep telling the guys, for the first 40 yards I am one of the fastest guys. And after that it's a horse race, but I pulled it out. I think if I get to the one-yard line, I am coming out, so I better get to the end zone, I am just being honest."

Ray Lewis on his emotions when he saw 24-0 on the scoreboard "We took the crowd out of the game, they weren't as loud. We you get up by that many points you really take the crowd out of the game. In Baltimore, our 12th man in the most important thing we have in Baltimore."

You could say that the Patriots didn’t lose this game  .. .its that the Ravens won it.

The Cowboys Are Heating Up At the Right Time

Romo's critics can no longer point to the Cowboys' 13-year drought of winning in the playoffs. And they can no longer accentuate the negative when breaking down Romo's postseason resume, which now includes 244 yards passing and two TDs against Philly

Philadelphia Eagles 14

Dallas Cowboys 34

The December doubts have finally been put to rest as Cowboys win this game and defeat that old saying in the N.F.L. where it is hard to beat a team three times in one season. Romo has 11 touchdowns and just two interceptions since December started. And Jerry Jones was heard saying "The demons are gone!" .

Tony Romo completed 23 for 35 for 244 yards, two touchdowns, no interceptions, and 104.9 rating. RB Felix Jones ran for 148 yards, third-best in Cowboys playoff history, and set a franchise-record with a 73-yard touchdown jaunt. Felix Jones finished with 148 yards rushing on 16 carries. After having only six catches in the final four regular season games, Cowboys WR Roy Williams had Williams had a five catches for 59 yards, all coming in the decisive first half when the Cowboys built a 27-7 lead.

Just as they had done in the last two meetings, Dallas dominated the line of scrimmage, sacking McNabb four times and outgaining Philly 198 to 56 yards rushing.

Special teams play was also a factor in the game. The Cowboys won the advantage in field position, allowing the Eagles to cross midfield only 5 times out of 13. Philly started at their own 20-yard line for most of the game.

Eagles head coach Andy Reid was blunt after the game, “They [Cowboys] were better all the way around, in every phase.”

For the Eagles' their best offensive play came on a 76-yard touchdown catch by Jeremy Maclin, McNabb was on the sideline. Up till that point McNabb hadn’t even completed a pass. Most people will agree that McNabb is one of the very best players in the history of the Eagles franchise. For as long as there are Eagles fans, there will be debate about his career. There will always be those who think he was fatally flawed and those who believe he was simply asked to carry too heavy a load for too long.

“Donovan is a great quarterback; he has enjoyed his years here,” running back Brian Westbrook said. “Whether people think he should be the guy here or not, he has done a great job. Donavon is the reason that we have had so much success. He is definitely one of the best quarterbacks that I have had to deal with, one of the best in the league.”

Green Bay Packers 45

Arizona Cardinals 51

The numbers from this game were astounding

  • This was the highest-scoring game in N.F.L. playoff history.
  • These two teams combined for 1,024 yards ,Green Bay 493, Arizona 521.
  • Each team punted only once.
  • They combined for 62 first downs.
  • Probably the finest playoff performance of Warners already stunning postseason career. He finished his day 29 of 33 for 375 yards and 5 touchdowns.

In overtime the game was over when Aaron Rodgers had the ball knocked loose by Arizona cornerback Michael Adams; the ball popped right into the hands of Karlos Dansby, who ran untouched into the end zone from 17 yards out. And Arizona scores. You know what they say in the NFL, the defense wins the game. Earlier he had missed a sack opportunity earlier in the game. Officials also flagged Adams for four penalties, including two for pass interference and one for holding.

"Tim Hightower came to me in the second quarter after my second pass-interference penalty and he said, "Keep your head up (because) you're going to make the play that wins this game," " Adams then said. "Throughout the game you can kind of lose faith and everything, but my teammates kept coming to me."

Adams teamates call him by the nickname "Money Mike" in reference to the "Swingers" movie character played by Jon Favreau. Co-star Vince Vaughn was always assuring Favreau's character "you're so money and you don't even know it."

This game showed one of the great quarterback duels in NFL history. Warner and Aaron Rodgers were about as good as quarterbacks can be. Aaron Rodgers became the first player in NFL history to throw for more than 300 yards in the second half of a playoff game. Overall, Rodgers finished the game with 422 yards and four touchdowns. Kurt Warner had a near-perfect passer rating (154.1) while completing 29 of 33 passes for 379 yards and five scores.

Larry Fitzgerald was his all-world self on Sunday, catching six balls for 82 yards and two touchdowns

James Jones The underrated Packers wideout pulled down three catches for 50 yards -- including a 30-yard scoring catch/run that cut the Cardinals' deficit to seven in the fourth quarter.

Arizona meets up next Saturday January 16 at 4:30 pm @the Superdome against Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints. The Cardinals and Saints have no playoff history, but the teams have played 25 times in the regular season with Arizona winning 13 times. The last time these two teams met it was on Dec. 16, 2007, and the New Orleans Saints took a 31-24 win in the Superdome.

Best stat of the Arizona vs Green Bay, each team punted once, good research. I can't wait to see the Cardinals vs Saints game, it should be filled with plenty of offense. I also think the Jets would have been better off facing the Colts instead of the Chargers. Take a look at my picks for this weeks games at nflandcollegefootball.com.

Most painful game I have ever watched as a Packer fan. I think maybe the blowout would've been better. To come back and get the game to overtime and then lose off a turnover like that... it was just heartwrenching. I think I will return to my weeping now. For a game lacking Defense is was both ironic and poetic that the Arizona D took the game home.

The game between the Cards and the Pack while poor defensively has to be one of the most exciting games I have seen in quite some time. Kurt Warner through perfect passes in some of the tightest windows possible. The Pats are in rebuilding mode. And while the Jets defense is great , the Chargers just have to many weapons for them to cover. I mean who do you double team ?

Colts will take the Ravens pretty easy but will take a good beating in the process. And I hope I am wrong.

Vikes and the Cowboys are the most even matchup this weekend , so to me that one is a tossup !

@RichBrown, always nice to see a new face around these parts. I think many people have overlooked and are still overlooking the Jets.. though it is true they have broken my &hearts one too many times. . Im still a NYer and have to root for the home team . and the way Rex has got these Jets pumped up . stranger things have happened . . . and it is he NFL. . so anyone counting Gang Green out ouught to take a step back. . . post season baby . its the post season!!!

@JBeadle- I could not agree with you more and I was so pulling for Green Bay .. . it was so sad to see them at the end I could barely look at them, , ,Aaron Rodgers made me cry . .. so who you gonna root for now, , you gotta pick one team??? I got the Jets and Dallas. . .

@drej25220- sorry about your Eagles...and I did feel for McNabb.....5 years and to come up empty. . kinda reminds me of Ewing......but the Eagles. . well no love lost for me for them , , ,i jumped to the COwpokes, , ,way back when I was a little girl the big D was my team, , actually I think the team I learned a thing or 2 about football . .so its it only natural i go back home when my Big Blue Wrecking Machine had to be sidelined for repairs!

@Tony Tony Tony .. I know you love your Chargers but these Jets are a contender. . and I do not think they are going to go down as easy as you want them to , , Sanchez is getting his teams support. and go back and remember what happened when Eli got his lines behind him. . add to that Rex Ryan who has his team and pretty much all NY behind them .. . we shall see,,,but you know how much I love seeing you round here! And I am not so sure the COlts are just going to take the Ravens., , ,remember what happened to the colts last time they rested tooo much!

@Oh Dohn ,,, you know I can never give up my football . I have most if week 17 done and i will eventually release it. . cause it def has some good stuff in it, ,but this one I had to get out quick . . the anti aging one is a test , ,, more or less. . but it is the nail one that you really need to read, , ha haha cause it is so not about making pretty nails.. i think it is one u would more expect frome me ,, hehehe

Glad you give me the thumbs up on my football. . without you guys I am not sure I could have come this far!!!

Always puts a big smile on my face to see you. .and if I am smiling according to my research I am years away from needind any of thoes creams!!!!!

I told you a few weeks ago that I thought the Jets were peaking at the right time. Good luck against the Chargers. As always, great Hub. The Boyz are on a roll, the defenses should rule the game. The only thing that concerns me is Romo. Favre is Romo's idle so, sometimes he chokes when they play each other. Maybe he's matured enough as a quarterback to overcome it. The games this weekend should be fantastic!

@Jai-Yes yes yes JET JETS JETS . .but Im not bleeding green as i do blue. . just when you fall in love with them Jets they go and break it all into pieces . .so I am just remaining in the "flirting" mode with them . .but yes you did see them first when they were getting hot. Got to hand it to Rex. . he is giving them all the confidence they need. . I think they are for sure the sleeper team of the year. . . as for the Cowboyz . I know what you are saying about Romo. . but like my crush on the Jets. .I have a feeling Romo knows that this Farve is just someone he once looked up to. . I really do think the Cowboys have the whole package to see it to the end. At this stage of the game the team that wins is the team that stands together as a whole unit. . and I just don't see that with the Vikings. . Diva Farve aint all that. . and he sure as hell needs to respect that there is a coach on his team . and it aint him .. weekend should be a Great one- More to come after it all. .and I hope to see you around these parts again~~~~so where we gonna meet after the football season is over ;)

@fishtiger58- a woman of my own heart! and what a weekend it was . . i bet we watch the games the same way. . all heart and soul of us is out there .. even when it isn't "our" own team playing. appreciation for the game is a must and I just know we both got it! Ooooh the Packer game got me .. but I have to admit I am not a Warner fan. . .so I was pulling for Aaron . . so sad to see him on the sidelines when it was over. . but bigger games are at hand for this weekend.. and Im rooting for the Jets and the Cowboyz!!!! whoop azz .. I love that one. . and I hope you don't mind if I quote you on that in one of my future hubs!!!!

@manlypoetryman- its interesting that if you love football, once you get over the initial loss of your team . . you can always find some other to team to pull for . . Your Texans will be back and stronger than ever next year. . . Saints. .hmmm I hope Drew has a good weekend and like fishtiger says ."opens a can of whoop azz" all over them Cardinals!

Glad to see you round these parts.. its always fun to see who is rooting for who!!!!

Quote away wavegirl and yes I can't watch football without lots of screaming and clapping and horayying. lol. I have heard some Packer fans complaining about the missed face mask call on the last play of that game but hey they miss stuff sometimes, happens to all the teams. So sorry Green Bay go home. woooohoooo!!! The face mask was there for all the world to see but the refs can't see everything all the time. I knew the Packer fans were going to complain about that muffed call. Enjoy this coming weekend. I'm going to.

@Michael .. glad you stopped by. . always good to see my Cowboys fan . .of course you are taking Dallas . .as am I .. and I am taking them to go all the way to the Super Bowl . where it would be amazing for my eyes to see the Jets line up against them there . .heheheh shut all them Chargers and Colts up (though I wouldn't mind seeing the Colts there.. . .I just don't want to have to see Warner or Farve there. . .Rivers ok . . but I wanna see Hot Romo against hotter Sanchez and I am not talking about their QB arm ;)

Cowboys and the Cardinals were busy laying eggs over the weekend. Oh I almost forgot the Chargers choked again. I'm so disappointed in football. I can't wait for next season to start already. It is going to be a long summer :[
