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.

  1. Life sentence for man convicted in killing of brother of Bucs' Kwon Alexander

    Bucs

    An Alabama man who shot and killed the 17-year-old brother of Bucs linebacker Kwon Alexander in 2015 was sentenced to life in prison Wednesday, the Anniston (Ala.) Star reported.

  2. Rays journal: Blake Snell continues roll in win over Cubs (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — It was still a game in the fifth inning when LHP Blake Snell walked the leadoff batter, then allowed a single. One swing by the Cubs' Ian Happ (22 home runs) could put a dent in the Rays' three-run lead.

    Blake Snell allows just two hits in pitching seven scoreless innings.
  3. Remember him? Numbers prove Ben Zobrist is one of greatest Rays of all time

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The first foray back to the Trop by the best manager the Rays have had obscured the second return visit by arguably the second-best player in franchise history.

    Figures.

    Chicago Cubs second baseman Ben Zobrist (18) grounds into a double play to end the top of the third inning of the game between the Chicago Cubs and the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2017.
  4. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Wednesday's Rays-Cubs game

    The Heater

    One success story of this lost season is the emergence of LHP Blake Snell as the frontline starter the Rays projected. After a rough start and two demotions, he has been rolling, Wednesday's solid seven innings making him 4-0, 2.57 in his past eight starts.
