    Before Thursday, the New York Jets had lost five straight to the Buffalo Bills, including both games against former Jets coach Rex Ryan. Cheap Sharks Jerseys Authentic .A 37-31 road win later -- which followed a heartbreaking home loss to the perennially playoff-bound Cincinnati Bengals -- and Todd Bowles team has renewed hope this year. So, we ask:Ryan Fitzpatrick was the story Thursday night, throwing for 374 yards and a touchdown against his former team. The Fitzpatrick-led Jets went 10-6 a season ago, but did not make the postseason. Their last trip to the playoffs? 2010, when they lost in the AFC Championship Game to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Bjorn, who had a 36-hole total of 8-under 134, made a testing six-foot putt to save par on the 16th and a birdie on the 17th before bogeying the final hole after a misjudged approach shot.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Vanderbilt center Barrett Gouger knows how hed like to see Ralph Webb become the Commodores all-time leading rusher: Break off a 28-yard run and get it over with quickly.The way No. 24 Tennessee has defended the run lately, that could come on Webbs first carry. Not that the Commodores are taking that for granted no matter how the Vols have struggled.That doesnt necessarily mean its just like an automatic thing for everyone, Gouger said.The only certainty Saturday night is that in-state rivals Tennessee and Vanderbilt will play the final game of the regular season with very different stakes on the line for each. The Volunteers (8-3, 4-3 Southeastern Conference, No. 17 CFP) wants to win its fourth straight and get some help to possibly earn a trip to the Sugar Bowl, while the Commodores (5-6, 2-5) can become bowl eligible if they beat Tennessee for the third time in five seasons.Theres one thing left, Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason said. Its rivalry week. Its Tennessee, two teams battling for bragging rights in this state, and thats part of it. Ralph cares more about winning in this game than really setting the record.Tennessee offensive tackle Brett Kendrick said the Vols know theres pressure to perform with so much on the line . The added incentive of trying to deny Vanderbilt a bowl berth is nice too.We just think that since theyre playing for that, theyre going to be all hyped up and riled up, Kendrick said. And then on top of that, its their Senior Night. I think theres going to be a lot of emotion from them this game, and weve got to withstand their opening punches.This could be an offensive show with Tennessee averaging 55.7 points per game over the last three games, including a 63-37 win over Missouri last week. Vanderbilt beat Mississippi 38-17 with its most points against an SEC team in Masons three seasons.This is as good of a defense as weve faced all year, Tennessee coach Butch Jones said.---Some other things to know about Tennessee and Vanderbilt:DEFENSIVE STALWARTS: This game features two of the top defensive players in the nation. Cheap Adidas Sharks Jerseys. Vanderbilt linebacker Zach Cunningham is a Butkus Award finalist who has an SEC-best 109 tackles. Tennessee defensive end Derek Barnett leads the SEC with 11 sacks. Barnett, the only SEC player ever to post at least 10 sacks in three seasons, has 31 career sacks to put him one away from Reggie Whites school record. Barnett also has an SEC-leading 17 tackles for loss, while Cunningham is second with 16 +.RUN DEFENSE WOES: Tennessee has allowed 400-plus yards rushing in each of its last two games. In its last five games against Football Bowl Subdivision foes, the Vols have allowed 356.6 yards rushing per game and 6.6 yards per carry. Webb is the SECs fourth-leading rusher with 1,058 yards and has five 100-yard games this season.STRENGTH VS. STRENGTH: Tennessee has scored at least 49 points in each of its last three games and has totaled 167 points over that span. That represents Tennessees highest point total for a three-game stretch since 1915. Vanderbilt is allowing just 18.3 points per game in SEC competition.CONTAINING DOBBS: Vanderbilts chances of pulling the upset depend on whether the Commodores can slow down Tennessee quarterback Joshua Dobbs, who has thrown three touchdown passes and has run for two more scores in each of his last two games. Dobbs has rushed for 337 yards during that stretch, and Mason came close to comparing him with Cam Newton. Man, what he did last week was pretty impressive, Mason said.SHOOPS RETURN: Tennessee defensive coordinator Bob Shoop filled the same role at Vanderbilt on James Franklins staff from 2011-13. Shoop coached or recruited many of Vanderbilts seniors. Vanderbilt linebackers coach Chris Marve and graduate assistant Javon Marshall both played for Shoop at Vanderbilt.---AP Sports Writer Steve Megargee contributed to this report.---More AP college football: and Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
