Ryan Leads Jets to Consecutive AFC Title Games (2009-10)

For all his talk, there was a lot of substance to Rex Ryan’s Jets. Despite the inconsistent play of first round draft pick Mark Sanchez, they won road victories over Cincinnati, San Diego, Indianapolis, and the Patriots en route to two consecutive trips to the AFC title game. The Jets would lead Indianapolis for much of the first half in the first game but were eventually overcome by Peyton Manning. The second game saw the Jets fall into a 24-3 hole only to mount a furious second half comeback that came up short. Both years ended in disappointment, but their playoff runs mark a high mark in the team’s 57-year history apart from our number one moment.
