Found November 23, 2012 on Rams Herd:

Situation: 3rd and 4 from the STL 47, 6:12 left in the 1st Quarter, tied at 0 Personnel: 21  Play: 4-vert Defense: 2-3-6 Dime, Cover-3 Zone Blitz Last Sunday marked the first time that Sam Bradford had faced a Rex Ryan defense, and the results generally did not go well. Bradford and the OL struggled to recognize where the pressure was going to come from, particularly on third downs (converting only 5 of 16). Bradford also struggled to find big plays that could beat the blitz, completing only 2 of 12 passes ten or more yards down the field.  This play in the first quarter marks the exception. The offensive line identified and picked up Ryan's rushers, and Bradford found Austin Pettis in the deepest level of the defense for a huge gain. In this week's Anatomy of a Play, we turn on the video projector once again and take you in-depth to show how this play worked.  Follow @Shields3L !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.ramsherd.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");

Will the latest embarrassing Jets loss to the Patriots cost Rex Ryan his job?

Rex Ryan is no stranger to his New York Jets being embarrassed at home by the New England Patriots. Last season, the Patriots traveled to New York and beat the Jets by a score of 37-16.

Pats stun Jets with 35-point second quarter

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- A couple hours after it happened, Rex Ryan was still in disbelief. "Thirty-five points in a quarter, I thought that was impossible to do," Ryan said.

No Gronk vs. Jets, but Pats still go as Brady goes

There were no sighs of relief, no jumps for joy when the New York Jets found out they wouldn't have to worry about Rob Gronkowski this week. Sure, the New England Patriots lost perhaps the league's top playmaking tight end for a few weeks with a broken forearm. But Rex Ryan's team knew better than to celebrate.
