Jets Shocker: Ryan's Boys Back Up Talk, Win
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- Mark Sanchez threw three touchdown passes, Tom Brady was sacked five times and the trash-talking New York Jets reached their second straight AFC championship game with a stunning 28-21 win over the New England Patriots on Sunday.

The Jets backed up coach Rex Ryan's brash talk, forcing the team with the NFL's best record into rare errors and setting up a date in Pittsburgh next Sunday against the Steelers.

New York led its fierce rival 14-3 at halftime before Brady's 2-yard touchdown pass to Alge Crumpler and Sammy Morris' run for a 2-point conversion made it 14-11 late in the third quarter. But Sanchez came right back with a 7-yard scoring pass to Santonio Holmes and finished the upset with Shonn Greene's 16-yard touchdown run.

The Jets (13-5) kept Ryan's prediction of a Super Bowl appearance alive. The Patriots (14-3) lost their third straight postseason game.
