On this episode of EndScore Report's "In Your Face," we call out New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan for basically telling Dallas Cowboys fans it wasn't a good idea to show up at MetLife Stadium, insinuating that they may get hurt. What? Idiot. We also blow up Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' spot for his comments about Jets QB Mark Sanchez. Maybe the Super Bowl champion is getting too big for his britches? HEAR the words that are coming out of our mouths!

In this edition of EndScore Report, DV and Chris take a gander at NFL Free Agency, which has been ablaze with the shortened offseason due to the NFL Lockout. Some players such as DeAngelo Williams and Santonio Holmes have re-signed with their old teams, while others like Sidney Rice and Johnathan Joseph are looking towards greener pastures. However, where will the top prize in free agency, Nnamdi Asomugha end up?
Since the recording of this podcast on the afternoon of July 29th, Asomugha signed with the Philadelphia Eagles, spurning the New York Jets who were heavily rumored to being very close to signing him. You won't hear the news on the podcast, but you read it here! LISTEN to the podcast, anyway!

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady was the first ever unanimous choice for AP NFL MVP. He last won the MVP award in 2007, that time receiving 49 of the 50 votes with one voter voting for Brett Favre. It was a no-brainer that Brady would win the award after putting up 3900 passing yards, throwing 36 touchdowns versus a minisclue four interceptions, and a stellar 111.0 QB Rating. He led the Patriots to a 14-2 record, but were quickly ousted by the New York Jets in the AFC divisional round. While the MVP award is sweet, it's still nothing compared to what Brady and the Patriots work for - a Super Bowl trophy.

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick won the AP Coach of the Year award for guiding his team to a league-best 14-2 record during the 2010 NFL season. However much success was had in the regular season, the Patriots failed to advance in the postseason, losing their first playoff game at home to the New York Jets. Regardless, Belichick is considered the standard for NFL head coaches and for valid reasons. This is the third time he's won the award, winning previously in 2003 and 2007.

In what was a grudge match between the New York Jets and Indianapolis Colts, the hype before the game was certainly warranted as the contest was decided as the clock wound down. The Jets were able to pull out a win, exacting revenge for last season's AFC Championship loss. With the Jets up 14-13, Peyton Manning was able to lead the Colts down the field to set up an Adam Vinatieri field-goal to take a 16-14 lead with 0:53 seconds left on the clock. It looked all, but over. However, Antonio Cromartie took the ensuing kick-off for 47 yards, giving the Jets excellent field-position. It paid off, along with a Mark Sanchez to Braylon Edwards 18-yard completion to get the ball to the Colts' 14-yard line. Then with clock ticking off the clock, Jets kicker Nick Folk hit the game-winning 32-yard field goal to give the Jets a 17-16 victory. A Rex Ryan-led team finally beat Peyton Manning and the Colts. Hallelujah. The Jets move on to face the New England Patriots.
