With New York beating the New England Patriots Sunday evening, the Jets-Steelers line has opened a -3 for the AFC Championship Game.

The Jets shocked the Patriots on the road by a score of 28-21.  New York led throughout much of this game. 

The Steelers beat Baltimore on Saturday to secure an AFC Championship spot.

Ben Roethlisberger improved to 9-2 in the postseason. His .818 winning percentage is the 2nd-best in NFL history among quarterbacks with at least 10 starts.

"It's Ben. You give this guy an opportunity to snap it; he's capable of producing plays," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. "It's not always how you draw it up, but he has a no-blink mentality. He is a competitor and a winner. And those guys follow him."

The Steelers came into this game with the third shortest odds to win the 2011 Super Bowl.  By comparison, the Jets entered their game against New England as a 14/1 long shot.
