The Sporting News previews Monday night’s Baltimore Ravens – New York Jets matchup. Here is TSN’s bottom line.
After a crazy, attention-filled summer, Jets’ players certainly will get an emotional boost from the return of the well-liked Revis, who not incidentally makes their defense much better. In fact, feelings will run deep on both teams, as Jets’ coach Rex Ryan was passed over for the job that eventually went to good friend John Harbaugh, and still feels snubbed by the Ravens, for whom he served as defensive coordinator. The game could get chippy considering that each team prides itself on not backing down. Defense figures to reign, and the Jets are slightly better in that category.
