Indianapolis has the worst net rest differential with a net of 11 less days of rest than their opponents and 3 games vs. opponents coming off their byes.

Jets daily draft nugget: One of the biggest heartbreaks occurred in 1997, when they owned the No. 1 overall pick and Peyton Manning decided to stay in school. Citing league rules, Bill Parcells never made an effort to sway Manning into turning pro, but he certainly could've sent a message through his father, Archie. Parcells wound up trading down twice, picking LB James Farrior with the eighth pick. He was a solid player (two Pro Bowls with the Steelers), but Parcells passed on two future Hall-of-Fame tackles — Orlando Pace (first) and Walter Jones (sixth).

About the passed ball that led to one of the two unearned runs CC Sabathia allowed, the pitcher took the blame. "My fault, my mistake, we got crossed up." He said he saw the sign he wanted to see instead of what Gary Sanchez actually put down.
