"To me, that's the No. 1 fear of a replay assistant, a decision on whether or not to stop the game on a running clock while the clock is heading to zero."

He ain't heavy

The New York Jets aren't as bad as they looked in Sunday's 49-9 loss at Cincinnati. Rex Ryan is sure of that.

"We're a much better team than that," the Jets coach said Monday. "We know we're a better team than that. But, again, what happened, happened. We better move forward."

Sunday, Ryan's team will play host to the New Orleans Saints, whose defensive coordinator is his twin brother, Rob. So there are off-season bragging rights at stake, too.

Said Rex: "New Orleans is one that will flat-out embarrass you."

Watch your back

Buffalo's Thad Lewis was sacked four times against New Orleans on Sunday, fumbling twice, and was frequently slow to climb to his feet.

The pressure won't be any less intense Sunday against Kansas City, the league's last undefeated team. The Chiefs lead the league with 36 sacks, nine more than the second-place team in that category … Buffalo.
