Ryan said that, although results have not gone their way in recent weeks, things are good on the practice field and they have been studying the Raiders closely.
"I think we're confident," Ryan told the Jets' official website. "I think they feel good for the fact that we've put in a lot of good days and back-to-back-to-back days of where we've had great practices.
"And maybe not great, maybe that's not the right word, but really good practices. I think that's good. But you know what? We're a team and guys feel good about that. The work that we're putting in in the classroom, even, I think's been impressive."
The Jets have lost their last three games and are now 5-7 for the season.
