Rex Ryan: Patriots are going to win the division

Rex Ryan knows which team will win the AFC East -- and it isn't Buffalo.

The Bills coach on Thursday essentially conceded the division to the undefeated Patriots, even if the Bills (5-4) knock off New England (9-0) on *Monday Night Football*.

"Does that give us an opportunity to win the division? No," Ryan said, per "They are going to win the division. I don't see them losing four games, you know, in the upcoming things. I hope I am wrong, but I don't see it happening."

Asked to confirm that he was handing the East to a bitter foe, Rex acknowledged: "I'm just telling you the facts. The only thing I'm focused on is beating them right now. On Monday night and we ain't conceding that. I can promise you."

Having already clinched their 15th straight winning season, the Patriots aren't about to nosedive down the stretch. It isn't in their DNA.

After watching Tom Brady and Bill Belichick rewrite football history, Ryan is simply admitting what football heads everywhere already know: The road to Super Bowl 50 goes through Foxborough.
