NFL Playoff Schedule: Jets Vs. Patriots

I've watched a lot of the Jets for the past two years and the Ravens before that. I've watched quite a few of Rob Ryan's defenses over the years as well, without really thinking about it. But today will be the first time that I watch a Ryan-run defense knowing that the Cowboys will be run under essentially that style. Wade Phillips learned some from Buddy Ryan as well and has some of the same traits in his defense, but the Ryans do things a little differently.

So, at 3:30 CST on CBS, check out what a Ryan does to try to beat an elite offense in a playoff game. Rex has some things - an elite corner, for one thing - that Rob won't, but the basic concept of the defense should be interesting to watch with the new perspective. I still won't be able to root for the Jets, though.
