NEW YORK (AP) — Todd Bowles will coach the Jets against the New England Patriots today after rejoining the team following a medical scare. The 53-year old was cleared by doctors and arrived at the team hotel Saturday morning after spending most of Friday in the hospital with what the team called an "undisclosed illness."

GEREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Green Bay can set up a showdown next week with the Lions for the NFC North title with a win at home against slumping Vikings today. After a slow start to the season, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has some on 22 TD passes and six games with a 100-plus passer rating since Week 7.

HOUSTON (AP) — Houston turns to Tom Savage as the starting quarterback as they try to keep alive their AFC South title hopes hosting Cincinnati tonight. Savage took over from an ineffective Brock Ostweiler and guided the 8-6 Texans to a comeback win over Jacksonville last week. Houston can claim the division title if it wins out.

CLEVELAND (AP) — The Browns will be trying for their first win of the season when they host 5-9 San Diego. Cleveland will be trying to avoid becoming the second team in NFL history to start a season 0-15, joining the 2008 Lions who went winless through an entire 16-game season.

HONOLULU (AP) — Look for a wide open affair in the Hawaii Bowl tonight when 8-6 Middle Tennessee takes on 6-7 Hawaii. The Blue Raiders average 515.7 yards of total offense and 40.1 points per game. The Rainbow Warriors allow an average of 455.4 yards and 37.5 points per game, which puts them at 105th and 115th in the NCAA, respectively.
