Ryan Disputes Jets Were Too Conservative
Ryan insists Monday that the Jets "go down to win" and those who think the team was playing "scared" in a 29-26 defeat are "ridiculous." New York (3-4) had a chance to win it in overtime, but Mark Sanchez fumbled and the Patriots (4-3) recovered to seal the win and take sole possession of first place in the AFC East.
There were a handful of plays Ryan is being criticized for, including a quick slant to Chaz Schilens on third-and-2 from the Patriots 3 in the third quarter that fell incomplete and the Jets settled for a field goal.
