Jets' Head Coach Rex Ryan Fined $75,000 for Cursing at Fan

Nick Laham/Getty Images(FLORHAM PARK, N.J.) -- This time, Rex Ryan's mouth really cost him. $75,000 to be exact. The NFL handed down the fine to Ryan for his comments towards a fan during halftime of the team's 37-16 loss to the New England Patriots.

The fan yelled to Ryan "Rex, (Bill) Belichick is better than you."

Ryan responded with "Shut the f--- up!"

Ryan later apologized, saying he let his emotions get the best of him. Ryan though, is no stranger to fines by the league and the Jets. Back in February of 2010, Ryan was fined $50,000 by the team after he reportedly made an obscene gesture towards a fan at an MMA event.

Tebow Does It Again, As Broncos Defeat Jets 17-13

Ezra Shaw/Getty Images(DENVER) -- Tim Tebow is now 4-1 as the Denver Broncos starting quarterback, and he has his team in playoff contention after stunning the New York Jets 17-13 Thursday night at Sports Authority Field.

The Broncos were down 13-10 in the fourth quarter until Tebow drove the team down the field. With a minute left on the clock, Tebow ran for a 20-yard touchdown to give the Broncos a 17-13 lead. Tebow completed just nine passes on 20 attempts for 107 yards, but also ran for 68 yards, including the game-winning score.

"We thought he was going to carry it and he did, he didn't disappoint us, but he ran for a touchdown," said Jets head coach Rex Ryan regarding Tebow's game-winning touchdown. "Kid's a competitor, you know, makes big plays, you know, with the game on the line. That's why you have to give him credit."

With the loss, the Jets fell to 5-5 and one and a half games behind the AFC East-leading New England Patriots.

NFL Week 11 Preview: NY Jets (5-4) @ Denver (4-5) 

Scott Boehm/Getty Images)(DENVER) -- The Denver Broncos (4-5) play host to the New York Jets (5-4) this Thursday night in week 11 of NFL action. Denver comes into the showdown riding a two-game winning streak, and is 3-1 since naming Tim Tebow its starting quarterback.

“We are just consistently getting better every week and it sounds cliché, but trying to improve,” Tebow said. “Just every day get a little bit better, find ways to study a little bit more, practice a little bit harder, just get a little bit better.”

In last Sunday's 17-10 victory over Kansas City, the Broncos ran the ball 55 times, while Tebow attempted only eight passes.

“You cannot just go to sleep,” Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis said. “This is a game where it's probably going to be a lot of running. Their running backs are getting a lot of carries and that can kind of allure you to sleep.”

Gang Green will be looking to rebound from Sunday night's crushing 37-16 loss to the New England Patriots, in which first place in the AFC East was on the line.

Kickoff is set for 8:20 p.m. Eastern time.

Both teams are tied for first place with the Buffalo Bills (5-3) in the AFC East.  In week five, New England got by New York 30-21, but they're coming off back-to-back losses headed into Sunday night.

"We know them probably better than anybody else in the league," said Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. "They're a tough team to prepare for, they've got a lot of good players, it's a great challenge."

Kickoff is set for 8:20 p.m. Eastern time.
