    In the third Super Bowl matchup in 6 seasons between the 2 coaches, coach Curtis would finally get a win against Coach Andyman on the way to his second Super Bowl win. When asked how it felt to finally get a win against his nemesis, coach Curtis had this to say, "Andy's a hell of a player and competitor. We felt confident going into the game that our guys were ready to complete the journey and that's what they did. Our hats off to Andy and his Rams and we're sure that's not the last we'll see of them."

    The game started with the Jets deferring the ball until the second half giving the Rams the opening possession. Rams would drive rather easily down the field only to have their drive stall at the 23 yard line and would kick a 40 yard field goal to take the early 3-0 lead. The Jets would respond with an impressive drive of their own, ending with a 23 yard pass to TE Ed Dickson to take the lead 7-3 after 1 quarter.

    After a Revis pick on Bradford, the Jets would settle for a 36 yard field goal after not being able to move the ball in Rams territory. After yet another pick, this time by OLB Calvin Pace, the Jets would capitalize when Knowshon Moreno punched it in from 2 yards out to take a 17-3 lead early in the 2nd quarter. After forcing the Rams to punt and with a great chance to put the game away early, Mark Sanchez would throw an interception at midfield giving the Rams great field position. The Rams would respond with 10 points of their own to close out the half 17-13.
    After not being able to do anything to open the half, the Jets would punt to the Rams. The Rams would put together another nice drive ending with a 3 yard run by FB Mike Carney. Needing a momentum swing, Mark Sanchez would connect with his favorite target TE Dustin Keller on a 55 yard pass to snatch the lead back at 24-20 heading into the 4th.

    After forcing Bradford into his 3rd interception of the day, this time by Macho Harris, Knowshon Moreno would make it count as he would take the handoff 32 yards for the score and a 31-20 lead with 6:47 left. Another Rams punt and the Jets would find themselves driving again. Faced with a 4th and 1 from the Rams 1 yard line the Jets were faced with a decision to go for the field goal or try to put the game away now. The Jets chose to go for it and the decision backfired as Moreno was stopped just shy of the goal line swinging momentum back to the Rams midway through the 4th. However, the Rams were not able to do much and were forced to punt. Nick Folk would add on a 37 yard field goal with 3:45 left to take a 34-20 lead. Bradford would drive the Rams down field and eventually connect with Steven Jackson for a 9 yard score bringing it to 34-27 with 2:25 left. With all timeouts remaining the Rams elected to kick it deep and hope their defense could make a stop. After a 1st down by the Jets the Rams would use all timeouts before the 2 minute warning. On 2nd and 3rd down the Jets elected to run the ball and waste as much clock as possible while trying to convert the game winning 1st down. The Rams defense would hold and would get the ball back with just over 20 seconds left. After a couple incompletions, Vernon Gholston would end the game when he sacked Bradford with 8 seconds to go and the Rams were unable to get off another play.

    Great game as always Andy, we will meet again
