The storyline
A rematch of last year's playoff game. Remember that? When the Bengals went 6-0 in the AFC North and hosted the divisional round? Yeah, seems like more than 10 months ago.

Why you should watch
Mark Sanchez is living up to the hype, and then some. Santonio Holmes has scored two straight game-winning touchdowns. The Bengals defense is in total disarray and has to travel in a short week. That could lead to fireworks.

Bengals QB Carson Palmer has thrown at least two touchdown passes in seven consecutive games. ... Cincinnati's Jermaine Gresham leads AFC rookies with 42 receptions. ... The Jets have won three in a row against the Bengals (including the playoffs). ... New York's Brad Smith leads the AFC with a 28.1 kickoff return average.
