Patriots Vs. Jets: AFC Divisional Round Game Capsule

I'm hard pressed remembering a Divisional Round Weekend featuring so many great games. This year's NFL playoffs got off to a fantastic start last weekend, and at least on paper, this coming weekend promises to be even better. There's an argument to be made that the Steelers and Ravens constitute the best rivalry in the NFL today, but there's no question in my mind that Sunday's showdown between the Patriots and Jets is the most intriguing match up of the weekend.

Let's continue the preview coverage leading up to the big game with some information on the two rivals' long-standing history, game notes, and final regular season stats for both squads.
