Instead of pre game meetings, Rex Ryan took the team to Dave and Busters

After the usual team meeting the day before a big road game, Jets head coach Rex Ryan decided to throw the team a curve ball. Now, Buffalo isn't exactly nationally renowned for a plethora of fun things to do, but Ryan apparently found a venue right down the street from the team hotel that could serve as a productive distraction.

After Ryan's usual motivational talk to the entire team, instead of heading to the offensive and defensive meetings to go over the game plan for Sunday against the Bills, Ryan decided to take the team to Dave and Buster's instead.

If you've never heard of the famous restaurant / arcade themed Dave and Buster's, think of it as an adult Chuck-E-Cheese complete with a better menu and a solid selection of arcade games, and solid beer selection.

Interesting tactic for the night before a big game. With the two teams kicking off at 1pm EST on CBS, the entire country will get to see whether it was a much needed night away from preparation for the team to blow off some steam, or perhaps it was the Jets overlooking the Bills.

Either way, I'd love to see footage of the reaction from a bunch of grown men hearing that they get to skip meetings for the night to head to Dave and Buster's for some food and fun.
