The AFC Championship game between the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers will kickoff at 6:30 EST (5:30 CST) at Heinz Field
Troy Polamalu will play Sunday, it was announced earlier. Polamalu had been held out of practice until Friday, nursing an Achilles tendon, that kept him sidelined for these two teams earlier meeting, in which the Jets won. Polamalu may be the biggest defensive impact player in the NFL. Starting cornerback Bryant McFadden was also held out of practice until Friday, with an abdominal injury.
7,500 Jets fans turned out to the team’s practice facility in Florham Park N.J. for a rally with the Jets General Manager, the governor of New Jersey, and ‘Fireman Ed’. For four hours. In the freezing cold. In New Jersey.
Those are some real fans.
