"They beat us on some plays down the field obviously and we didn’t have our two starting corners and Jairus Byrd wasn’t back there so we have three players back there now that we feel comfortable with," Marrone told "So going into this situation we feel a whole lot better in what we have back there than we did the first time played them, even though the first time we played them our guys did the best job they could back there."

"According to a source, Rex Ryan canceled the team’s normal pregame offensive and defensive meetings and the team went to "Dave & Buster’s," the chain arcade/restaurant a few miles from the team’s hotel.
