- For Jets and Pats, old wounds heal slowly
Eleven months later, the loss still stings.
The Jets were embarrassed last Nov. 13 by the Patriots, 37-16, falling on their home field before a Sunday night TV audience. It was the most lopsided home loss of the Rex Ryan era — until this season’s 34-0 rout by the 49ers. It was a rough night for Ryan, who was fined $75,000 by the league for cursing at a fan. Bill Belichick, too, used profanity, but it was directed at the Jets.
Walking off the field, Belichick put his arm around his son and, according to the New York Post, told him, “Thirty-seven points on the best defense in the league.
- Coach’s Big Decision: How to use Cro
Antonio Cromartie has developed into a weapon for the Jets, a three-way player capable of making an impact on offense, defense and special teams. They need all the help they can get against the Patriots, so it would be wise to take a “Make them eat Cro” approach, using him as much as possible.

- Tebow: Running back or red herring?
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — On Thursday, Jets coach Rex Ryan said he could consider using backup quarterback Tim Tebow as a running back. Asked to confirm later that afternoon, offensive coordinator Tony Sparano offered a cagey, “We’ll see” over his spectacles.
So come Friday afternoon, Tebow was greeted by a sizable contingent of print and television reporters and the matter of Tebow as a running back was on the agenda.
