FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Tom Brady hates the Jets. Dustin Keller said the feeling is mutual.

The Jets tight end fanned the flames a bit yesterday, adding some fuel to the raging fire created by his coach earlier in the day. Speaking on Sirius/XM's "Mad Dog Radio," Keller made it clear he doesn't exactly have a soft spot for the Patriots, the team the Jets will be squaring off against in an AFC divisional-round game at Gillette Stadium on Sunday.

"If there's any team that I do hate in the NFL, it would definitely have to be the Patriots,'' Keller said. "This is a big rivalry for us. Obviously, we play them at least two times every single year and we know the type of team they are. In order to get to our goal to win the Super Bowl, you have to go through New England, and this is our chance.

"This is our chance to prove that we are that Super Bowl team that we've been talking about."
