On the way to SB XXXII the postseason featured:
WC - December 27, 1997 - Jacksonville - win 42-17
Division - January 4, 1998 - @ KC - win 14-10
AFCCG - January 11, 1998 - @ Pittsburgh - win 24-21
SB XXXII - January 25, 1998 - vs. Green Bay - win 31-24.
You're right that the Jest game was closer but they still would have needed 2 touchdowns to beat us so while it wasn't necessarily a beatdown like the Miami game was, it was still a solid win.
I guess you dont remember that we were losing at halftime. Took an adjustment of McCaffrey and Smith to stay put instead of switching sides to make the deep slant route for the TD. Much scarier than the score represents. I was there and there were a decent amount of Jets fans in the stadium.
