Some Jacksonville Jaguars news from around the internet you may have missed.

Jaguars Notebook: Team adds to record books in unwanted ways | jacksonville.com

The Jaguars’ 2-10 season has allowed for many trips to the franchise record book and Sunday’s 34-18 loss to Buffalo was no different. Both the Bills’ 46 carries and 232 rushing yards were among the most allowed in Jaguars history. The Bills’ attempts were the third-most, behind Houston’s 48 earlier this year and three games of 49 rushes. Buffalo’s rushing yards were the sixth-most by an opponent in Jaguars history. The record is 305 by Tennessee in 2009.

Gene Frenette: Without Tim Tebow, Jets-Jaguars game loses its juice | members.jacksonville.com

The only time Tim Tebow set foot on EverBank Field as an NFL quarterback, he took two snaps in a wildcat formation for the Denver Broncos, gained two yards, and went promptly back to the bench for Kyle Orton. Since his 2010 pro debut, Tebow's surreal career ride has done nothing to diminish his status as an iconic figure. Whether he's playing the superhero in salvaging Denver's 2011 season and leading a playoff win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, or now riding the pine as a non-factor for the New York Jets, he remains the league's most polarizing figure.

Jaguars' goal still finishing strong

This may or may not be Montell Owens’ time. If it is, if next week or sometime in the final four games he gets an opportunity to be the featured running back, Owens said that’s fine and he said he’s ready. But he said his approach – and the Jaguars’ approach – won’t change much either way. Four games remain. And whatever the record, whatever the situation, winning still must be the objective. "Our main concern is not about who’s out there, or who’s doing what," Owens said Monday, a day after the Jaguars’ 34-18 loss to the Buffalo Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park, N.Y.

Inside the Jaguars

Rashean Mathis should have played more Sunday, and likely will in the near future. That was the view of Jaguars Head Coach Mike Mularkey Monday, who said he made a mistake Sunday not playing the veteran cornerback more in a loss to the Buffalo Bills. "He’ll play more," Mularkey said. Mathis, who returned this season after missing the last month and a half last season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament, played just eight snaps Sunday. He had missed four games with a groin injury, but Mularkey said he spoke to Mathis and told him he should have played him earlier and more against the Bills.
