    Westbrook, though, attempted to clarify and said he was thanking Jayme Sharpe, the daughter of Thunder trainer Joe Sharpe. 'Thank you Jayme .'

    A 34-year-old journeyman backup, Cassel will close out the season as the Titans' starting quarterback after Marcus Mariota fractured his ankle/fibula against Jacksonville.

    Jaguars 38, Titans 17: In Jacksonville, Fla., Blake Bortles' best game of the season helped the Jaguars end a nine-game losing streak. If the Patriots lose next week and the Raiders win, the Raiders take the No. That hasn't been an issue with Derek Carr .
