ESPN analyst Ray Lewis had some interesting things to say about the New England Patriots before their “Monday Night Football” matchup with the Buffalo Bills.

The former Baltimore Ravens linebacker was one of two ESPN analysts who picked the Bills to beat the Patriots, and he also stated his case for Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, not the Patriots’ Tom Brady, to win NFL MVP honors.

But Lewis’ stance that he would take Rex Ryan “all day” over Bill Belichick as a coach because of how Ryan “relates to players” took the cake.

That probably won’t be a popular stance in New England, especially with the recent history between the Patriots and ESPN.
