Tonight’s look at the AFC East..
- Rex Ryan‘s job may be on the line, but Jets defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson doesn’t blame him or anyone else on the staff for their poor performance, writes Newsday’s Kimberley A. Martin. “When your coaches are putting together the game plan and you don’t go out there and execute . . . that’s a problem. I put this on us. We lost this game. That was terrible. That wasn’t Jets football. And it [stinks],” Wilkerson said.
- Ryan will probably get fired by the Jets, but Idzik should follow him out the door, writes Gary Myers of the New York Daily News.
- With Tom Brady clicking, the Patriots should stand pat at the deadline, writes Mike Petraglia of WEEI.com. There has been talk of the Pats going after Bucs receiver Vincent Jackson and while they could use a deep threat, today’s blowout of the Bears shows that they don’t need to make any addition. Brady, Rob Gronkowski, and Brandon LaFell gave the Pats plenty of offensive firepower, leading New England to a 51-23 win.
