Other than a few die-hard Jaguars fans, no one expects Jacksonville to put up much of a challenge this week for a hard-hitting Houston team coming off a big road win in tough conditions.Still without their star running back, Maurice Jones-Drew, the Jaguars are averaging just 14.1 points per game and have gotten little help from Blaine Gabbert or this year's first-round draft pick, Justin Blackmon.What you might see is a frustrated Jaguars side ready to boil over, and with the game likely to be out of hand by the half, we could see some tempers begin to flare in a divisional matchup that has been dominated by the Texans in recent years.Playing against the league’s fifth worst overall rushing defense, you can expect the Texans to do what they do well and run the ball. Houston:QuarterbackWhile we will see a lot of Arian Foster, don’t be surprised if Matt Schaub takes a few shots down field to keep the Jaguars' defense on their toes.If you need a replacement this week for Eli Ma...

Blaine Gabbert era likely over in Jacksonville

The Jacksonville Jaguars lost today. That's no surprise to anyone who's paid them any attention this season. The manner in which they lost, however, was nothing short of shocking. The Jaguars played the AFC's top team, the Houston Texans, today, and they led much of the game. With just 8 minutes to go, the Jaguars held a 14 point lead, but it just didn't last. ...

Houston needs to stay focused against a bad Division opponent. Week 11 preview.

The Texans need to pay attention this week and not think ahead to their Thanksgiving day match-up. After a rough Week 10, I'm sitting at 92-54-1.  Who wants to keep track of a tie. Let's see if I can turn this around this week. Arizona at Atlanta - The Cards need to get some production from the QB position if they want any chance to make playoff this season...

Jones-Drew misses 4th straight game for Jaguars

Jacksonville running back Maurice Jones-Drew, safety Dwight Lowery and cornerback Rashean Mathis are among the inactive players for Sunday's game in Houston. Jones-Drew will miss his fourth straight game with a sprained left foot. Lowery (ankle) will miss his fifth straight game and Mathis (groin) will sit out for the fourth straight game. Fullback Greg Jones, offensive lineman...

En Fuego: Cecil Shorts

Shhhh…people still don’t believe in me Juan… Cecil Shorts is kind of the guy you disregard at first because you don’t think he can keep doing it.  CS3 is getting it done since moving into the starting lineup.  Now, Justin Blackmon went crazy today, but Shorts has been the guy you want in the Jags WR corp. Over the last 5 weeks, Shorts has 24/437/3 which is extremely solid...

Johnson and Blackmon make NFL history

Johnson had 14 receptions for 273 yards, both career highs. Blackmon, a rookie, had seven receptions for 236 yards, also career highs. Blackmon had an 81-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter...

Waiver Wire: Jalen Parmalee

Hey Juan, you could worse…I’m not how much worse Rashad Jennings pretty much sucks.  He can’t tie MJD’s shoes, nevermind be a feature back in the NFL.  The Jaguars may have finally figured this out as well.  With MJD which is short for “No Time Table” maybe not back for 2-3 more weeks (if ever). Enter Jalen Parmalee, who looked like more than just a corpse out there...

Jaguars show grit in OT loss to Houston

  The Jacksonville Jaguars – despite having just eight wins on the season, being injury plagued and having a severe lack of talent and depth – showed Sunday they still have something left in the tank and that they haven’t given up yet. Despite being written off by the media, and to be honest myself, the Jaguars showed some grit Sunday in the face of the vaunting Houston...

Maurice Jones-Drew says he’s going to be out for another 2 weeks

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew joined Fox Sports Radio with Petros and Money and told them that he’s going to be out for another two weeks. “No it’s definitely not going to be the year but with a foot injury you don’t want to mess around with it and come back at 70 or 80 percent,” said Jones-Drew. “It’s just one of those things that’s going to...
