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 into Thursday night, look at them now. The loss to the Patriots dropped their record to 4-7 on the season and virtually erased any hope Gang Green had of making the playoffs. Jets fans chanted loudly for Tim Tebow at various points throughout the night. Mark Sanchez turned the ball over twice, but he was hardly the only issue as New York’s defense was a sieve and its special teams unit looked lost.
Now, Ryan has to be left wondering if he will keep his job at the end of the season. Rex is known as a defensive mastermind, yet the Jets’ defense has gotten progressively worse since it was a dominant force in 20...

New York Jets head coach has no problem with Patriots head coach Bill Belichick keeping starters like Tom Brady, Wes Welker, et. al in during the 4th quarter of their blowout loss Thursday night. “It’s our job to stop them.

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.

And now we know why.

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.
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. But the New England Patriots are pretty good at making the near-impossible into a commonplace event. The Patriots tied a franchise record by scoring 35 points in the second quarter -- a stretch...

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...
