The Jets and Browns will meet in Cleveland on Sunday, and beyond being a game that will impact the standings like any other, it also features a meeting between the Ryan brothers: Rex is the head coach of the Jets and his twin, Rob, is the defensive coordinator of the Browns.
The Browns have pulled off back-to-back upsets, beating up on the Saints and Patriots. The Jets struggled to overcome the Lions last weekend and are hoping to stay unbeaten on the road. In order to do so, they’ll have to score points on Rob’s vastly improving defense. Rex joked at his press conference Wednesday that he had placed a bounty on his brother’s head. Oh yeah, he also showed up to the news conference dressed up like his bro:
It’s nice to see that the rigors of the NFL won’t get in the way of family bonds, at least for one of the brothers. The good thing for Rob is that Rex’s success in New York has helped raise the “Ryan” profile and make Rob a desirable head coaching candidate. Rob had already been mentioned as a candidate in past years, but as long as his Browns keep playing well, he’ll be a lock for a job this off-season.
