Rex Ryan responds to Bill Belichick: ‘That’s not true’

FOXBOROUGH — Jets coach Rex Ryan fired back at Patriots counterpart Bill Belichick on Wednesday, disputing Belichick’s claim that the Jets also used the illegal push technique on a field goal attempt, the same play that drew a key flag on the Patriots in overtime on Sunday.

The penalty, which was called against rookie defensive tackle Chris Jones for pushing a teammate into the Jets’ line, wiped out a 56-yard missed field goal by Nick Folk and gave the Jets 15 yards and an automatic first down. Folk subsequently connected from 42 yards, giving the Jets a 30-27 overtime win and ending their five-game losing streak to the Patriots.
