It's another matchup with Rex Ryan's Jets on Sunday for the Patriots and, when you take away all that's been said and written about the Jets coach, one thing remains clear: He can still coach defense.

Mike Giardi of "SportsNet Central" says Ryan might be doing his best work this season to have the Jets (3-3) at .500.

Tom Brady concurs.

"You can't fall asleep on them at any point," the Patriots quarterback said. "They have a lot of negative plays in the run game and create disruption in the passing game."

The strength of the Jets' D lies in the front seven. The Patriots will have to figure out a way to get past them, particularly linemen Muhammad Wilkerson and rookie Sheldon Richardson.
