Sure Feels Like It


I think rivalries still exist in the NFL.

I don't think they're as significant to the teams because the players change. But when you take the field, within the framework of the team, you feel something in a rivalry game.

When Dallas plays Washington, the fans feel it. You feel it. It's a division game. A lot is at stake. There's no question you feel it.

This one between the Jets and Patriots absolutely has taken on new meaning because of what's happened between [Bill] Belichick and [Eric] Mangini, because of Spygate, all of that.

It's a division game.

It's got all the trappings.
