AFC East Daily:
Lead writer Nick St. Denis and AFC East Daily contributors Dan Begnoche and Sean Donovan pick the Thanksgiving divisional slugfest between the New England Patriots and New York Jets.Nick's take: Ah... Thanksgiving dinner, beer and Jets vs. Patriots. Few things are better. Rex Ryan will have Gang Green ready, and the Jets will divide their rushing attempts evenly between Bilal Powell and Shonn Greene, which keeps the offensive backfield fresh and the Patriots' ridiculous offense off the field a little longer. New England's defense, however, will make its usual game-changing turnover in the fourth quarter to edge New York.Prediction: Patriots 30, Jets 27Sean's take:The Jets are coming off their most complete performance in quite a while but will need much more to overcome the AFC East juggernaut Patriots. Mark Sanchez played well in a close game earlier this season in an overtime loss in New England but will struggle on Thanksgiving night. The Pats go up early and stic...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
After last night’s horrible loss to the Patriots, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan still can’t believe how bad his team played.
“Obviously watching the tape, it’s still hard to fathom the one stretch,” Ryan said today, in comments distributed by the Jets’ PR staff, per Pro Football Talk. “I’ve never seen anything like it. Coaching football or even following football...
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. Thursday’s loss was even uglier, as New England dominated in all phases of the game en route to a 49-19 Thanksgiving Day loss on national television.
If you thought the Jets had questions heading...
If you tuned into the Turkey Day tilt between the Patriots and Jets, you might've noticed the conspicuous lack of playing time for Tim Tebow.
In fact, the highly-publicized backup quarterback played zero -- read 'em zero -- snaps in New York's 49-19 blowout loss to the Pats.
And now we know why.
After the game, Tebow revealed to reporters that he has two fractured...
Rex Ryan is embarrassed yet defiant after the New York Jets
collapsed against the New England Patriots.
The New York Jets' loss to the New England Patriots on Thursday night was the type of inexplicable, embarrassing game that gets coaches fired. Jets coach Rex Ryan says that's not going to happen to him.
"I do, I do," Ryan said when asked if he expects to be coaching the Jets next year, according to The Star-Ledger. "And I think our team will play a heckuva...
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...

Joe Caporoso - 12 Pack
Chris Gross- Jets 24, New England 21: Tomorrow, the Jets will display the same mentality that they had last week in St. Louis, the mindset that their backs are against the wall and they need to swing from the hip to survive throughout the rest of the season. While New York is historically bad under Rex Ryan when facing the Patriots in the clubs’ second...
'U R RIDICULOUS'
New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller took to Twitter to call out Jets fans who apparently booed when it appeared that Mark Sanchez went down with an injury.
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 anticipates Tim Tebow will be ''ready to go'' in the New York Jets' next game against the Arizona Cardinals in spite of the backup quarterback's two broken ribs.
The Jets coach said Monday that the team will see how Tebow does during the week.
Tebow was in uniform but didn't play Thursday night in the Jets' 49-19 loss to the New England...
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...
The New York Jets continue to amaze us for all the wrong reasons.
There is no shame in losing to the New England Patriots, because they are a pretty good football team. However, the Jets didn’t just manage to lose to the Patriots, they were embarrassed on Thanksgiving night, 49-19. The loss dropped their record to 4-7.
This was a home game at MetLife Stadium on national television...
