Last season Rex Ryan and the New York Jets took the AFC Conference by storm, and they were just a couple of bad plays from making a Superbowl appearance. This season the Baltimore Ravens want to be that team.
The trash talking for this game began weeks ago. Jets coach Rex Ryan was a Ravens assistant from 1999-2008 (defensive coordinator from 2005-08) and he will face his former team for the first time since becoming coach of the Jets. The Ravens will be more than up to the challenge.
The two teams meet on Monday Night Football at 7:00 P.M. in New York and you can follow all the action here with live updates!
Stars to Watch--
The Ravens are loaded with talent. Joe Flacco leads the Ravens into a season where they have high hopes for a Superbowl run. Pro Bowl wide receivers Anquan Boldin and T.J. Houshmandzadeh are two more targets for quarterback Joe Flacco in an increasingly formidable Ravens offense.
The Jets are everyone's "sweetheart" pick to win the AFC. Quarterback Mark Sanchez leads the Jets again and new comers DE Jason Taylor and Antonio Cromartie are looking for fresh starts with the Jets -- along with Ladainian Tomlinson, the Jets are loaded this season.
