Jets favorites to win Super Bowl

By Marc A. Greenberg

Asked today if he liked being the underdog team in the AFC playoffs, Coach Rex Ryan replied, “I wasn’t aware of that, but to me we should be favorites.”

Asked if he meant favored Saturday against the Bengals, Ryan replied,”I mean in the whole tournament … I think we have the best defense; I know we do. I think we have the best rushing attack. I want this football team. If I had a choice to coach any team in this tournament, I would choose this one.”

Jets are 2 1/2 pt. underdogs in Saturday’s playoff game against the Bengals.
