“Ryan is taking advantage of the situation that’s presented itself," Dennison said. "He’s certainly done a good job and that’s something to be said.
Supernaw rejoined the team last week as a practice squadder and the former Katy Taylor standout is thrilled to get the opportunity.
"I really don't have anything to lose," Supernaw said. "Nobody's expecting me to do anything. Going into the game with that attitude of 'nothing to lose, everything to gain' can help me open up and play and try to make something happen."3. Andre 1,500- With 1,358 receiving yards in 2013,
Johnson has always maintained that he's focused first on wins, and not personal accolades. And even though the Texans have suffered through a disappointing year, Johnson wants to go out with a bang.
"Nobody wants to be in this position," Johnson said. "But we made our bed so we have to lay in it, and hopefully we can get a win Sunday, and we don’t have to deal with this losing streak the whole offseason.”

“I just want to get a win," Hopkins said. "I don’t really care what my stats are. What I did against them was 14-15 weeks ago. So I just want to go out and get a win. That’s the only thing that matters right now.”

You can have a powerhouse that can lose every game the following season. Everybody’s getting paid in this league and everybody’s trying to out-coach you, out-play you."
Pollard and the Titans have struggled through a 6-9 season so far, but the veteran defender has been active with 93 total tackles, three interceptions and nine passes defensed.
