Jaguars observations: Poor overall performance leads to 0-2 start again

No Robert Griffin III? No DeSean Jackson? No problem for the Washington Redskins. Not with the Jacksonville Jaguars showing little to no spark on offense or defense Sunday. The promise shown a week ago in the first half at Philadelphia has turned out to be just an illusion. Except for a 63-yard touchdown pass from Chad Henne to Marcedes Lewis, there was nothing to be encouraged about...

Buccaneers observations: Little looks good in loss to Panthers

TAMPA, Fla. -- Not quite. What looked like a major rout Sunday by the Carolina Panthers turned interesting in the closing minutes.
