Rex Ryan is known for his confident swagger when it comes to discussing his football team, and he's predicting a Monday Night Football win over the Patriots on Dec. 6.

Ryan was already looking ahead to the AFC East clash between the 9-2 teams during his postgame conference Thursday night, according to a report by ESPN.com. Per usual, there was a bit of smack talk laced into his comments.

"Our football team believes we can beat anybody, and we're going to prove it," Ryan said. "We've won eight in a row on the road, and we plan on making it nine."

Ryan went on to disagree with the majority of NFL experts when he told reporters the Patriots are not the best team in the league.

"Clearly, they're the best team in football," Ryan said. "That's what all the experts say, except me."
