AROUND THE AFC

BENGALS: The crowd of 64,060 was second-largest in Paul Brown Stadium history. The Browns game drew 64,217 last year.

BILLS: DE Marcus Jones, coming off surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left knee, was signed six weeks after he was released by the Bucs. Calling Jones his first move to address the team's needs for next season, GM Tom Donahoe told Empire Sports Network that Jones likely will miss the rest of the season.

BROWNS: Phil Dawson missed a 24-yard field goal. He had been 24-for-24 from inside the 30-yard line during his four-year career.

CHARGERS: Sunday was San Diego's first win over San Francisco in seven games dating to 1988.

CHIEFS: TE Tony Gonzalez caught two passes for 17 yards, moving past Kimble Anders into fifth on the team's career receptions list. He has 378 and needs 47 more to pass Henry Marshall for most in team history.

COLTS: RB Edgerrin James has a sprained right ankle but is expected to play Sunday at Denver. The status of two other injured players is uncertain: starting DT James Cannida (knee) and backup CB Nick Harper (wrist).

DOLPHINS: QB Ray Lucas sported a protective socklike sleeve over a bruised left elbow. Since taking over for injured starter Jay Fiedler four games ago, Lucas also has strained his back and injured his right shoulder. "It's a fashion statement," Lucas joked about the sleeve. Because it's his nonthrowing arm, coach Dave Wannstedt said it shouldn't affect Lucas' performance or his playing status for Sunday's home game against the Chargers.

JAGUARS: CB Fernando Bryant suffered a concussion and will be held out of contact in practice early this week.

JETS: G Dave Szott, who in his 13th season tore a ligament in his right knee in May, was placed on the active roster. OL Darnell Alford was waived.

PATRIOTS: The Super Bowl champions are 5-5, just as they were a year ago, so the subject of whether they can run the table again will come up. Just don't ask coach Bill Belichick. "I don't care about last year right now," he said a day after losing to the Raiders. "It doesn't have anything to do with where this team is. I know what you're asking, I understand the situation, the comparison and all that. I don't think about it. I don't care about it."

RAVENS: The team will have to wait several more weeks for the return of QB Chris Redman, who has missed four straight games with back problems.

STEELERS: Worried by Todd Peterson's ongoing slump, the team will bring in at least four kickers for tryouts today. It expects to decide by the end of the day if it will sign one. Peterson was 0-for-2 in Sunday's 31-23 loss at Tennessee, missing from 31 and 37 yards. Coach Bill Cowher did not talk to reporters Monday, but was visibly agitated Sunday: "Our kicker right now is not kicking the ball very well, and that's a problem."

TITANS: DE Jevon Kearse could play Sunday for the first time since breaking his left foot in the season opener. "I feel probably more optimistic about Jevon than I have at any Monday this year since the injury," coach Jeff Fisher said.
