Rex seeks Bills intel from brother during bye

Jets head coach Rex Ryan and his team are coming off the bye as they begin preparations for the Bills on Sunday. Ryan spent part of his bye week in New Orleans seeking further intel on the Bills from his twin brother Rob Ryan.

A team’s offense and defense can morph and change over the course of a season, so Ryan was likely checking with his brother to see what ways Buffalo’s offense and defense may have changed since he initially faced them in Week 3.

Rob Ryan is the Saints defensive coordinator, who brought a lot of pass pressure down on QB Thad Lewis making him unavailable for the game the following week in a 35-17 win over the Bills. Rex Ryan faced EJ Manuel in his first road start back in Week 3 and also dialed up a lot of pressure and his team got eight sacks in a 27-20 win.

Although Ryan is 7-2 against the Bills as Jets coach, his teams are 1-3 coming off the bye. He gave his players six straight days off last week.
