D'Qwell Jackson has seen the good and bad that comes with a long NFL career. The Colts are happy, too. Jackson might not have been the most coveted free agent on the market when Indy signed the former Cleveland Browns linebacker in the offseason, but his arrival has helped reinforce the team's run defense and point things in the right direction. The Colts plan to show the same grit this weekend at Pittsburgh.

(The Sports Xchange) - Tennessee Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt named rookie Zach Mettenberger the team's starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans at LP Field. Jake Locker has missed the past two games with a thumb injury, and the naming of Mettenberger could signal the end of Locker's days as the Titans' No. 1 quarterback. - - All signs point to Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson returning to the field for Sunday's game in London against the Atlanta Falcons. ...
Browns veteran linebacker Karlos Dansby doesn't need anyone to point out the surprising statistics about Cleveland's defense. The Browns have the worst rushing defense in the league, dead last among 32 teams. ''No excuses.'' Cleveland's defense is allowing 155.5 rushing yards per game and is on pace to have its worst run defense since 2000, when it gave up 156.6 per game. Back then, the Browns had a built-in excuse: they were in just the second year of their expansion era.

Lined up at the Houston 2 late in the first half on Monday night with a chance to take the lead, the Pittsburgh Steelers didn't put the game in the hands of star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, rapidly improving running back Le'Veon Bell or reliable veteran tight end Heath Miller. Instead, Roethlisberger took the snap and flipped the ball to wide receiver Antonio Brown. What he did instead showcased the inventiveness - or insanity, depending on your point of view - of Haley, Pittsburgh's unapologetic offensive coordinator.
The Tennessee Titans have kicked their youth movement into high gear with rookie Zach Mettenberger starting at quarterback against the Houston Texans on Sunday. Jake Locker has missed three of the past four games with injuries, and coach Ken Whisenhunt said Thursday that the decision to go with Mettenberger was made Tuesday. The coach said this is an opportunity to see what the sixth-round draft pick out of LSU can do with the Titans struggling at 2-5. ''No question he's a talented, young player, and maybe it'll give us a spark,'' Whisenhunt said.
