The AFC Notebook

A weekly look at the news, notes and quick hits from around the AFC.

Jacksonville native Tim Tebow saw very limited playing time Sunday as quarterback and wide receiver. Tebow, however, said playing in his hometown was cool. "It was pretty exciting to be back here," he said per the Palm Beach Post.

From the "This Might Be Useful One Day In Trivial Pursuit" file…Despite the somewhat surprising loss Sunday to the Texans, Peyton Manning's 40 completions versus Houston is a franchise single-game mark, surpassing Jeff George's 37 completions against the Redskins in 1993.

Bills Coach Chan Gailey was disappointed with his team's running game Sunday with C.J. Spiller, Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch all combining for just 38 yards. "You've got to find better ways to run the football, and that's my responsibility to get that done," Gailey said according to Buffalonews.com

Sounds like Rex could have been talking about Kyle Wilson after Monday night. Texans rookie cornerback Kareem Jackson was beaten a couple times by Colts wide receiver Austin Collie, but Coach Gary Kubiak was pleased with his effort. "You know, he'd never been against (Peyton Manning). He did some good stuff. Looking for consistency. Obviously, a rookie, first time out, playing against Peyton and that offense is about as challenging as you can get in this league. But he can go back and learn a lot of things from the film. But he played pretty darn good for a first time out but we can always do things better," Kubiak said in a post-game press conference.

A source told The Cleveland Plain Dealer that Browns quarterback Jake Delhomme will undergo an MRI on his right ankle, which he hurt during Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay. Backing up Delhomme is Senecca Wallace. It is still unclear whether this injury will affect Delhomme's status next Sunday.

Reggie Bush left this message via Twitter not too long ago, "I hope that kids and upcoming youth can look at me and use this story as an example and learning tool. Challenges are a part of life," Bush said. But Reggie, does breaking up with Kim Kardashian have to be a part of our lives? Kim, call us. You've got the number on the restraining order.

Steelers linebacker linebacker Lawrence Timmons knows he has a stiff tasking awaiting Sunday in stopping Titans running back Chris Johnson, per CBSSports.com. "Johnson is a guy that can take it to the house anytime. I definitely have my hands full with him," said Timmons.
