How much of a difference can fans make this Sunday at MetLife Stadium? According to Jets coach Rex Ryan, all the difference in the world.

Ryan made a challenge and a guarantee Tuesday on his weekly appearance on ESPN New York 98.7 FM.

He is asked Jets fans to re-create the loud environment that was present at the old Giants Stadium on Sept. 20, 2009, when the Patriots failed to reach the end zone and lost to the Jets, 16-9.

While the Patriots’ shocking comeback victory over New Orleans on Sunday left many on the Saints, including defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, speechless at the end of the game, the same can’t be said for Jets coach Rex Ryan, Rob’s twin brother.

Tom Brady said Monday he doesn’t think there’s any resentment in the locker room toward Rob Gronkowski.

The Patriots quarterback, speaking on Weswtood One radio prior to the Monday Night game between the Chargers and Colts, said he’s not buying into the idea that some of his teammates resent Gronkowski because the tight end hasn’t played this year despite offseason surgeries on his forearm and back.

FOXBORO -- Aaron Dobson, Kenbrell Thompkins and Josh Boyce are done with school, but there’s still plenty of classwork to worry about. They’re enrolled in NFL Offense 101, taught by Professor Tom Brady.

FOXBORO — In a disturbing flashback to last January’s AFC championship game, Aqib Talib was forced to leave Sunday’s game with an apparent leg injury. He appeared to grab his leg during the second drive of the second half by the Saints. He came back after one play and headed to the immediately to the sideline, where he slammed his helmet to the ground and was examined by team medical director Tom Gill.

The Patriots announced that Talib suffered a hip injury and was questionable to return.

The Patriots have submitted their list of inactives for Sunday’s game against the Saints, and the following players are inactive:

Offensive lineman Chris Barker: A young offensive lineman who is a healthy scratch.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski: The will-he-or-won’t-he saga regarding the tight end will go on for another week, as he won’t play against the Saints. Expect a heavy dose of Michael Hoomanawanui and Matthew Mulligan in his place.
