(STATS) -- Just a month ago, it appeared Montana had all but locked up a berth in the FCS playoffs.Heading into the final week of the season, however, its playoff outlook is looking quite precarious.Weber State entered the final weekend of October making a strong case that it belonged in the playoff field, but now its going to need a win -- and some help -- to earn an at-large berth.Weve got to win it, Weber State coach Jay Hill said of Saturdays game against Idaho State. Its a one-game season right now late in the year.A win would improve the Wildcats record to 7-4, give them a third-place finish in the Big Sky and put them squarely in the playoff conversation.Weve got a lot riding on it, Hill said. Weve got a chance to win seven games for the first time in a long while and we all know the implications of playoffs. We want to get to that seventh win.The Wildcats last won seven games in 2009, which was also the last time they made the postseason. The playoffs looked like a pipe dream after consecutive defeats to North Dakota and Northern Arizona, but last weeks 22-15 victory over then-No. 16 Cal Poly has given Weber State new life.The Wildcats came out with an inspired effort, limiting a Mustangs team that came in second in the FCS in rushing at 370.4 yards per game to a season-low 190.The defense now looks to bottle up the Big Skys worst offense.Idaho State (2-8, 1-6) is averaging 360.5 yards and things arent much better on the other side of the ball. The Bengals have surrendered an average of 47.8 points during a six-game losing streak and have dropped 11 of 12 in Big Sky play.Its been a similar story for Idaho State in its series with the Wildcats, as Weber State has won 12 of the last 13 matchups.Though its been another trying season for the Bengals, they put up a fight at Montana two weeks ago.Idaho State piled up 520 yards and led 31-27 midway through the second quarter before eventually falling 62-44.That lackluster performance by the Grizzlies marked their only win in their last four games.Montana (6-4, 3-4) was No. 10 in the Oct. 17 STATS Top 25 poll but has spent the last month playing its way out of the postseason. While losses on the road to Big Sky preseason favorite Northern Arizona and No. 3 Eastern Washington are understandable, last weeks 28-25 setback at Northern Colorado was deflating. The Grizzlies rallied from nine points down in the fourth quarter to take the lead, only to allow a 75-yard touchdown drive with 3:35 left to fall to the Golden Bears for the first time in 14 meetings.We didnt really feel like we lost the game, Montana coach Bib Stitt said, we gave it away.So now the Grizzlies season comes down to Saturdays home matchup with rival Montana State in the 116th edition of the Brawl of the Wild.Montana prevailed 54-35 at Montana State last season for its eighth win in the last 10 meetings. Brady Gustafson, second in the Big Sky in passing with 2,593 yards and 24 TDs, threw for 353 yards and four scores as the Grizzlies racked up 537 yards.The Bobcats (3-7, 1-6) are second in the Big Sky in scoring defense this year, allowing 25.9 points per game, but arent getting the same production from their offense. They had averaged 22 points during a six-game losing streak before beating UC Davis 27-13 last weekend.Although Montana State is in the midst of its worst season since going 0-11 in 2000, Stitt knows the Bobcats would love nothing more than to knock off their archrivals and eradicate any playoff talk.(This game) has so much significance amongst our team and our state and our fans, Stitt said. You dont have too much motivating as far as players go to get them ready. They know whats on the line.Whats on the line is a fourth straight trip to the playoffs -- something Stitt is trying to avoid thinking about.I just want to focus on a win and let other people worry about that, he said. We think we have a very good football team and our record is an indicator. Yanni Gourde Stanley Cup Jersey .C. -- When North Carolina freshman Ryan Switzer reported to training camp in August he was a little miffed to learn he was third on the depth chart at punt returner. Steven Stamkos Stanley Cup Jersey . They had already blown a double-digit lead, fans were hitting the exits, and a long seven-game road trip waited at the end. http://www.cheaplightningjerseys.us/alex-killorn-stanley-cup-jersey/ . Perhaps Carroll was so prepared for a break because he believes there is very little the Seattle Seahawks need heading into the off-season. "I dont see anything that we need to add. We just have to get better," Carroll said. Braydon Coburn Stanley Cup Jersey . The Nashville Predators were glad their captain was still on their side. Weber had a goal and two assists, and Roman Josi scored the shootout winner to lift the Predators to a 4-3 win over the Flyers on Thursday night. Jake Dotchin Stanley Cup Jersey . John Lucas, signed as a mentor for rookie Trey Burke, showed he can score if required, scoring 12 points of his 16 points in the second quarter as Utah built an 18-point lead. FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Tom Brady is ready to play after cutting his right thumb with scissors in a silly accident before the Patriots preseason game against the Bears last week.Brady said Tuesday he missed the first two practices this week for personal reasons, but that hes available and ready to play when New England visits Carolina on Friday.The 39-year-old quarterback has yet to appear in a game this preseason. Hes got two more games before the start of an NFL-issued four-game regular-season suspension for his role in Deflategate.He hasnt missed a regular-season start since 2008, when he suffered a torn ACL in his left knee during the season opener.Brady said the accident with the scissors occurred when he was trying to get something out of his cleat. The scissors slipped and cut his thumb, causing him to let out probably a pretty loud word I wouldnt repeat in front of my kids.Im glad it wasnt the regular season and I learned from it, so hopefully wont be operating any more scissors for a while, Brady said.Brady said he wanted to play against Chicago, but coach Bill Belichick made the decision hed sit out. It was a decision the former MVP agreed with.It took a few days (to heal), Brady said. I wanted to go and coach said its probably best if you -- for what I was going to go out and do -- just take it easy. So thats what I ended up doing. I wish I could have played. Ive been missing playing. I want to get out there with my teammates.Belichick has said previously that Jimmy Garoppolo will start while Bradys out, with Brady returning to the starting role once his suspension ends prior to New Englands game at Cleveland on Oct. 9.Asked if he expecteed to play Brady this week after being out the first two preseason games, Belichick said the priority remains getting Garoppolo ready.ddddddddddddAll three quarterbacks are extremely important. Jimmys preparation for the Arizona opener is the most important, Belichick said. Nothings changed, and nothings gonna change. Thats the way its gonna be.Brady is eligible to participate in all preseason games and practices, but cant have contact with the team during his suspension.Though hes been a spectator so far this preseason, he said there has been a good dialogue with Garoppolo.Were in every meeting together and theres always a good back and forth in our room, Brady said. I think thats really encouraged by (offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels) to speak up and say what you think. If you see someone maybe doing something a little bit different, were always trying to be on the same page.He said how he will handle staying in football shape during the suspension is still to be determined.I try to treat it no different, Brady said. Ive always tried to do the best I can do to prepare and be ready to go. Thats the kind of mode that Ive got to get into.Game notes The Patriots released cornerback E.J. Biggers, running back Donald Brown and defensive lineman Frank Kearse. The roster currently stands at 83. Teams must reduce their active rosters to 75 players on Aug. 30.---Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Kyle Hightower on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/khightower Cheap Jerseys Store Discount NFL Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2018 Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
