Story line: New York hopes to carry its slim playoff hopes through Monday, continuing a soft close to the season that has included victories over Arizona and Jacksonville, with San Diego and Buffalo after this. Titans receiver Kenny Britt caught eight passes for 143 yards last week.

Jets said: "I'm not going to guarantee a playoff spot. I think part of that is, look, the fact that we're one game under .500, I think you're probably not in the playoff conversation." — Rex Ryan, coach

Titans said: "It's real special to be amongst some elite company. Just give God a lot of thanks being able to stay healthy." — Chris Johnson, on his fifth consecutive 1,000-yard rushing season

Bottom line: The Titans are favored by one point, and the over/under is 41. … When Jets' Shonn Greene rushes for 100 yards, New York is 6-0. … Titans' Jake Locker averages 305.3 passing yards in home games. … Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez hasn't secured his spot in the past two wins, having three passes intercepted, losing a fumble and contributing just 208 yards through the air.
