"We know if he's healthy, this young man has the ability to be a punch-you-in-the-face type of back," Ryan said.

SIBLING RIVALRY: With their father Buddy watching at MetLife Stadium, the Ryan twins — Rex and Rob — went up against each other.

And, Rex came out on top again.

"All right, I beat my brother again," Ryan opened his news conference. "Just kidding."

Well, Rob probably wasn't laughing. The Saints' defensive coordinator fell to 3-7 against him and 0-3 since Rex took over as coach of the Jets.

FOLK HERO: The Jets' kicker improved to 23 for 23 on field-goal attempts, moving him one away from Jay Feely's team record for consecutive makes.

Folk converted from 39, 21, 47 and 45 yards, the fifth time in his career he has made four or more field goals, and third time with the Jets.

"He's been automatic for us," Reuland said. "That's a huge weapon to know every time he walks out on the field, we have three points."
