Rex Ryan fears the New England Patriots

Published Add your comment

The NFL regular season schedule was only released just yesterday and it seems like Rex Ryan is already having Tom Brady-based nightmares.

Ryan's New York Jets side have a rough two weeks in the middle of October, hosting the Denver Broncos on Sunday, and then travelling to Massachusetts to face the New England Patriots on the Thursday game. Jets head coach Ryan noted how much of a test the double-header would be.

“Obviously that’s a huge challenge,” Ryan said Wednesday, via’s Rich Cimini. “It’s another year where we go on the road on a Thursday night to play New England, (which) isn’t ideal. But again, we’ll be up for it.

“It is a challenge. You’re facing the two best teams in the AFC last year, who played in the (AFC) Championship Game, back-to-back. … But, we’ll have a lot of football to play up until that and hopefully we’re hitting our stride when we play those two teams.”

The Jets faced the Pats in a Thursday night game last season as well, but prefaced it with a matchup verses the Jacksonville Jaguars, a much easier warmup we can all agree.

Maybe Darrelle Revis will haunt his old team and Ryan his old coach, when he faces off against his former Mean Green teammates in 2014. New England will certainly be favourites going into it.
