    At first glance it might seem obvious that we'd like to see the Jets go one and done, but I'm wondering if the Jets might actually have a better chance against the Colts in the Divisional Round.

    If the Pats can win two games, it would be great to be at home against the Jets for the AFC Championship though I realize that it's quite a long shot for that situation to become reality.

    What are your thoughts?

    I actually want the Jets to win. Even though I hate them, I am much more interested to WATCH them rather than the Bengals. The Bengals are kind of boring to me. I would love for the Jets & Pats to be the improbably two teams left standing in the AFC with an awesome AFC Championship game at the Razor, where we would wipe the field with the Jets. I can dream, can't I?

    The Jets, of course. I'd love to watch Pats-Jets for the AFC championship. It would be a great game and add to a twice a year rivalry that I really enjoy.

    The only time I can ever live with myself rooting for the Jets are the following:

    #1 We need them to win to get a playoff spot (a la 2008)
    #2 They're playing the Giants.

    Since this situation falls into neither of those categories I'll be a Bengali Tigah!

    While I do think that the Jets would have a better shot at knocking off the Colts should they play them in the Divisional round, I can't bring myself to root for them in this situation. I think I'll just watch & enjoy the game without a rooting interest.

    If the Pats can't win it all, I'll be rooting for the Bengals, followed by the Packers.

    Same here. The question is, which team is better equipped to beat the Colts. Both have a strong ground attack and good defense with the slight edge to the Jets on the latter. However, I have much more faith in Carson Palmer than Dirty to pose a problem. I think slight edge has to go to the Bengals.

    Chris Henry was a huge loss to that team. With him I probably would have predicted them to go into Indy and knock off the Colts.

    He had 12 catches before he went on IR in November. I wouldn't call that a "huge loss."

    I think we can beat the Jets more then we can beat the Bengals, but I don't want to hear it from all the Jets fans if they win in the playoffs. Every game is a superbowl to them

    The Jets have won 2 Super Bowls already this season. It's time for someone else to have a shot.

    OchoCinco is my favorite NFL player that is not on the Patriots. Jets are the team I hate the most. So the choice is easy. However if the Jets do win and NE wins I will root for the Jets against the Colts to have the AFCCG at home.

    I don't really see how there's a question here. The Jets will be bragging forever if they win and this would legitimize their absurd path to "qualifying" for the Playoffs.

    Go Bengals!!!

    GO BENGALS! And as bad as Cincy's pass offense has looked lately, I have a gut feeling it'd show up against Indy.

    I love ochocincos antics and hate the Jets. No brainer.

    If a team went to the SB aside from us this year, I'd be fine with cincy.
