HARTFORD, Conn. Derrick Williams Jersey . -- Former Travelers Group insurance company chief executive Jay Fishman, who became a national advocate for research into Lou Gehrigs disease after being diagnosed with it, died at his home in New Jersey on Friday. He was 63.Fishman became CEO of Travelers predecessor company in 1998 and assumed the same title after the merger of The St. Paul Cos. Inc. with Travelers Property Casualty Corp. in 2004.He was diagnosed in 2014 with a form of Lou Gehrigs disease, a terminal neurodegenerative condition also called amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS. He stepped down as CEO last December but had stayed on as executive chairman of the board.A company spokesman announced Fishmans death following his battle with ALS.Fishman spearheaded philanthropic efforts related to ALS research. He served as co-chairman of the PGA Tours recent Travelers Championship golf tournament, which was held in Cromwell, Connecticut, and whose main charitable beneficiary was a Connecticut hospital that provides care to ALS patients.The man who succeeded Fishman at Travelers, Alan Schnitzer, called him an icon among corporate leaders.The disease that afflicted Fishman is named for Lou Gehrig, one of the New York Yankees greatest players. Gehrig played in 2,130 consecutive games, earning the nickname The Iron Horse. He retired after being affected by ALS, and he died in 1941 at age 37.Fishman helped fund a national project that is gathering information from hundreds of ALS patients to try to better understand the variations of the disease and how to fight it.He raised money for a Boston Childrens Hospital project that banks the voices of ALS patients so that when the patients lose the ability to speak they can use computers that will speak for them in their own voices. He and his wife recently gave $3 million to fund a University of Pennsylvania project that helps patients with at-home respiratory care.You can be a skeptic and say, `Well, the only reason hes doing it is that he has the disease, Fishman said in June. The answer is, `Yeah, of course. If not me, then who? If Im not going to reflect all the good things that have happened to me in my life and find a way to plow that back to help people deal with what I personally know is a horrible disease, then shame on me.---This story has been corrected to show Travelers Championship golf tournament was held in Cromwell, Connecticut, not Hartford.

CHICAGO -- Marcus Mariota is piling up some impressive numbers while he eyes the AFC South title for the Tennessee Titans.Mariota directed Tennessee to a 27-21 victory against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, bolstering the Titans chances of making the playoffs. Tennessee trails Houston by a half-game for the top spot in the division after the Texans lost at home against San Diego.Thats all you want, Mariota said. You want an opportunity this time of the year to get a chance to (win) a division title and maybe make a run at the playoffs. Thats all you can really ask for.The Titans (6-6) are off next weekend and then host the Denver Broncos on Dec. 11. The Texans (6-5) begin December with road games against Green Bay and Indianapolis.When Tennessee returns from its bye week, Mariota will be looking to build on his strong second season. He has thrown for multiple touchdowns in eight straight games. He is the third player in franchise history with 25 touchdown passes in a season.Hes doing a great job at looking for everybody, getting everybody the ball, receiver Rishard Matthews said. Im just happy when the ball comes my way that I can make plays.Matthews had a diving 29-yard reception in the back of the end zone with 1:15 left in the second quarter, helping Tennessee to a 21-7 lead at the break against the Bears (2-9). Delanie Walker also had a 4-yard TD catch in the second quarter.Mariota was 15 for 23 for 226 yards. Derrick Henry had eight carries for 60 yards, including an 11-yard touchdown run.Here are some things to know about the Titans and Bears:BARKLEYS COMEBACK: Chicago quarterback Matt Barkley showed he can lead a comeback in his first NFL start. But he also had some issues.With Jay Cutler shelved by a right shoulder injury, Barkley completed 28 of 54 passes for 316 yards and three touchdowns. But he threw a first-half interception and anoother early in the third quarter. Gorgui Dieng Jersey. he Bears had a first down at the Tennessee 7 in the final minute when Josh Bellamy dropped a pass in the end zone. Barkleys next three attempts fell incomplete, preserving the win for Tennessee.Barkley credited the comeback to going no-huddle.Routes, they were all crisp, he said. I was seeing everything easier. Our guys, they were getting open.MISSED OPPORTUNITY: The dropped pass in the end zone by Bellamy wasnt the only one by the Bears.Marquess Wilson also dropped one and Deonte Thompson had a possible game-winner fall out of his hands while diving on the final Bears play.All the Bears receivers are backups, with Kevin White injured and Alshon Jeffery suspended for violating the NFLs policy on performance-enhancing substances.It was a tough day for our group, Thompson said. But were just going to keep battling and keep fighting and coming every day with our `A game.INJURY STACK GROWS: With the Bears already missing Jerrell Freeman due to a PED suspension, the linebacker corps took another hit when starting inside linebacker Danny Trevathan went out on the Titans next-to-last possession with a knee injury.Coach John Fox said it appears to be serious, but we do not have all the tests run to give you a real solid prognosis to this point.John Timu replaced Trevathan.DEFENSIVE SHIFT: The Titans stopped the Bears three times in the red zone. Linebacker Wesley Woodyard and safety DaNorris Searcy produced interceptions.You can bend, but dont break, Woodyard said. Just because they get in the red zone doesnt mean they have to score. And we got three red-zone stops and thats the tale of the tape.---For more NFL coverage: and . ' ' '
