While the Jacksonville Jaguars are at it, they might want to apply that same torch to any and all evidence of their dreadful first-half performance against the Indianapolis Colts.

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...
