Turn On The Jets:
New York Jets
New England Patriots
4-6 is not the type of record to go celebrating in the Meatpacking District over. The way New York athletes often do after big victories. Ending a three game skid and moving beyond a “Terrible Tim” storm that threatened to derail focus on the Rams is. The Jets win over St Louis has seemingly calmed the Florham Park madness down for the time being but more importantly, has moved Gang Green to within two games of a wildcard spot with six games remaining. The hated Pats minus Gronk are next, but a season on the brink was given a breath of life yesterday. Let’s at least be thankful for that at the start of this holiday week.
1 – Unraveling the Mystery That Is Mark Sanchez
Give Mark Sanchez an effective run game, a defense that gets stops, some screen passes with proper spacing, a few roll outs, and receivers who hold onto the ball, and you get a 118 rating. The entire team has to be functioning well in order for Sanchez to manage a game with confidence but when they do, the Jets startin...

We’ve gotten to a point – and maybe rightfully so – where Mark Sanchez can do no right in the eyes of some Jets fans. Yesterday, Sanchez played a smart, effective, efficient, well-rounded game. He was sharp, confident...
The Jets and Patriots play two football games a year.
They also play another game, where Jets coach Rex Ryan says something stupid and the Patriots shove it back in his face.
But not this time, apparently. As the Jets and Patriots deal with a short turnaround before their Thanksgiving evening matchup, Ryan has decided to zip the lip and just make sure his 4-6 Jets come out to play...
For at least one day, the New York Jets halted the downward spiral.
Mark Sanchez was solid for the first time in several weeks, the unquestioned No. 1 quarterback presiding over a turnover-free offense in a 27-13 victory over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.
The beleaguered Sanchez was an efficient 15 of 20 passing for 178 yards and a touchdown, while Tim Tebow was merely a footnote...
The New York Jets may have saved their season. For now. And may have saved their head coach his job also. For now. In coming to St. Louis and slapping the Rams around the Edward Jones Dome 27-13, the Jets have given themselves a reason to celebrate and keep the New York media off their backs. For now.Here are five things we learned from the game on Sunday:1. New York quarterback...
Rex Ryan has no message for Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots this week.
Nope, no fightin' words this time around. After all, the way the usually brash coach sees it, the New York Jets (4-6) need to focus on themselves and ''punch our way out'' of the hole they got into with three straight losses before a 27-13 win Sunday at St. Louis.
The New York Jets season received a shot of life with a 27-13 win over the St. Louis Rams. However, it will take an upset over the New England Patriots this Thursday night to truly make them relevant in the AFC playoff picture again. Here is a collection of early thoughts -
1. The big injury news this week is that Patriots tight end Rob Grokowski will not play because of a broken...
Rex Ryan says it's an ''ideal scenario'' for the New York Jets to have all three of their running backs - Shonn Greene, Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight - in the mix for playing time the rest of this season.
It has been rare for all three to be healthy and effective in the same game, as they were in the Jets' 27-13 win over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. Ryan...
Dallas defensive coordinator Rob Ryan doesn't pretend to ignore that the Cowboys are playing Cleveland for the first since the Browns dumped him when they fired Eric Mangini two years ago.
Even when he's pretending.
''Honestly, I'm going to say no,'' Ryan said when asked if he had discussed this week's personal motivation with his players. '...
IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Dallas defensive coordinator Rob Ryan doesn't pretend to ignore that the Cowboys are playing Cleveland for the first since the Browns dumped him when they fired Eric Mangini two years ago.
Even when he's pretending.
"Honestly, I'm going to say no," Ryan said when asked if he had discussed this week's personal motivation with his players...
The New York Jets (4-6) have a playoff pulse. They completed dominated the Rams (3-6-1) in St. Louis in one of their most complete games of the season.
The only negatives of the game, besides Tim Tebow’s incredible lack of productivity, was Nick Folk having another field goal blocked and his first outright miss of the season.
The Jets opened the game driving...
Coach Rex Ryan said the Jets will “keep throwing” to struggling rookie WR Stephen Hill. Hill went without a catch again in Week 11, the fourth time that has happened this year. He also had another mind-numbing drop. Ryan tried to blame Hill’s illness for the woes. “Sometimes when you have young players, rookie players, and they miss the whole week of practice…you kind of...
Rex Ryan and Bill Belichick are supposed to be archenemies. They’re not supposed to exchange Christmas cards, compliment one another on their interesting clothing choices or even swap pleasantries, at least as far as Patriots and/or Jets fans are concerned.
But on Tuesday, Ryan broke that code. The Jets head coach actually backed up Belichick on his decision to play Rob Gronkowski...
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.
''I don't know,'' Ryan said, shaking...
Lead writer Nick St. Denis and AFC East Daily contributors Dan Begnoche and Sean Donovan pick the New York Jets' inter-conference contest with the St. Louis Rams. Nick's take: When Jets coach Rex Ryan and Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer shared the field during Schotty's time with the Jets, Rex's defense ran the show. I think that holds true when the...
