Rex put all his eggs in that basket. That was the day that we were going to surpass the Patriots and put them in our rearview mirror. But Bill Belichick thought otherwise. The team never believed in Rex Ryan again after that day. The fans thought that after the playoff pounding we'd overtake New England and instead were handed a humiliating and thorough defeat.
Going into that game, we were on an 18-9 run with no less than 5 big victories against elite teams.
Since that game, the New York Jets are 9-15 with a 1-11 record against teams that end the year with a winning record.
I don't think anyone up I-95 thought this. Brady is still very much alive and well. Sorry.
