RYAN HAS IT IN FOR COLTS' MANNING

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Look out, Peyton. Rex says this time, it's personal.

A ho-hum, first-round playoff matchup? Not with the Jets back Saturday night in Indianapolis.

"We are not going to Indianapolis to lose," Jets coach Rex Ryan said Monday. "We are going there to win."

Especially after New York had its season end there last year, falling in the AFC title game after QB Peyton Manning dominated the second half. That made Ryan 0-2 in the postseason against Manning and the Colts.

"I don't know when I'm going to beat him, but I want it to be Saturday night," Ryan said. "Is it personal? Yes, it's personal. It's personal against him, Reggie Wayne, all those guys, yeah. (Dwight) Freeney and (Robert) Mathis and those other dudes? Absolutely."

Since 2005, when Ryan became Baltimore's defensive coordinator, the Colts are 5-1 against Ryan's defenses. Manning has 12 touchdown passes and two interceptions in those meetings.

BEARS: Devin Hester set the league record for the highest punt return average in a season at 17.1 yards per return (minimum of 30 returns). He topped the mark of 16.1 set by Jermaine Lewis of Baltimore in 2000.

PATRIOTS: DL Ron Brace (elbow) went on injured reserve.

SEAHAWKS: G Chester Pitts (concussion) and TE Chris Baker (fractured bone, hip) will miss Saturday's game against New Orleans. Meanwhile, coach Pete Carroll wouldn't name a starter at quarterback between Charlie Whitehurst and Matt Hasselbeck.
