On Sunday, January 16th at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts, the New York Jets play the New England Patriots in a rubber match. They've been given the opportunity to redeem themselves after a crushing 45-3 defeat on Monday Night Football to their division rival.
However, somehow I don't think it will be that easy. You see, the Patriots are on a roll and the Jets are their first foe on the way to Super Bowl XLV in Dallas, Texas on February 6th, 2011.
Since day one of training camp, Rex Ryan has been shooting his mouth off with his bold proclamations and anointing his team Super Bowl Champions.
