tomlinson in motion. mark sanchez lofts it in. patriots with far too many missed cued today. young takes his eye off the football. fumbles and recovers. that was a big gamble by bell check in that situation. there was only a minute left in fact half. then, sanchez, back to pass. it's edwards. what a mistake that decision was. 2nd half, finally with 20 seconds left in fact 3rd quarter, the patriots offense wakes up. two-point conversion and it's -- check out the footwork along the sideline. patriot fans stunned at this point. then it got real quiet because sanchez lobs it up for santonio holmes in only a spot he can
get it. jets up. 21-11. patriots will get a field goal to cut the lead to seven, but the jets didn't let it get any closer. sean green in from 16 yards out. jets beat the patriots 28-21. they're going to the afc championship game for the second year in a row. >> we talk because we believe in ourselves. same old jets going to the championship game two years in a row. the only difference is we're going to win this one. we came heroon a mission, and we're trying to win a super bowl. >> so sunday at 3:30, it will be the jets versus the steelers. seahawks may have been the first team to -- but no team looker better. seattle was a win away from a ticket to the nfc championship. the only thing that stood in their way. chicago bears. snow flurries all threw the
