Steelers Say Jets Tipped Plays on Goal-Line in AFC Championship

On the Steelers’ goal-line stand in the fourth quarter of the AFC Championship Game, which helped Pittsburgh to Super Bowl XLV, defensive players said the Jets tipped off their play calls according to Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star Ledger.

Linebacker LaMarr Woodley batted down quarterback Mark Sanchez’s pass on third-and-goal from the 1-yard line and said he could tell before the play that the Jets were going to pass, and not run with LaDainian Tomlinson in the backfield.

“Usually on third-down situations most teams are going to run,” Woodley said at Super Bowl XLV Media Day yesterday. “The offensive lineman is usually going to be in the three-point stance ready to charge at you. I just read the offensive line, and I saw that he was standing up in a pass set, so I decided I wasn’t going to rush up field because it had to be something quick in that situation.”
