The biggest, strongest, toughest quarterback of them all stands in the way now.
After the Jets beat Peyton Manning and Tom Brady in back-to-back weeks, Rex Ryan’s team will face its biggest challenge against Ben Roethlisberger in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday night. Ryan playfully calls it Round 3 of Mission: Impossible, a daunting three-week road trip filled with Super Bowl-winning signal-callers.
The Steelers quarterback may not be a statistical giant like Manning or Brady, but he’ll test Ryan’s defense in a very different way.
“He puts a bigger stress on our defense,” cornerback Darrelle Revis said Monday.
