Fans will focus on Baltimore and Tennessee’s defenses. Other teams will focus on Baltimore and Tennessee’s defensive coordinators.
The St. Louis Rams and New York Jets are interested in interviewing Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan for their vacant head-coaching jobs.
Ryan likely will interview with the Rams on Sunday, one day after the Ravens play at Tennessee in Saturday’s AFC Divisional Playoff Game. The Jets also will try to squeeze in there somewhere and could try to talk with him Sunday if Baltimore beats Tennessee.
Titans defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz already has interviewed with the Cleveland Browns and Detroit Lions. The Browns already filled their job with Eric Mangini, but Schwartz still is in the running for the Lions’ vacancy. And he could make his loudest statement of all with some playoff victories.
