The Jacksonville Jaguars remained winless after losing 34-20 to St. Louis on Sunday, but the team did make some progress. They scored a season-high 20 points and it was a seven-point game in the fourth quarter. But the biggest evidence of the team’s progress is this: For the first time this season, punter Bryan Anger isn’t in the top five on the weekly list of the Jaguars’ top 10 playmakers. Did he even make the list? You’ll have to read on. Remember, this isn’t a list of MVP candidates, but a compilation of the players who are making the biggest difference each week.
In response to growing fan support of football in the United Kingdom, the NFL will take another important step in its international development in 2014 when, for the first time, three regular-season games will be played in the UK, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced today at the league’s fall meeting in Washington, DC. The Jacksonville Jaguars, Atlanta Falcons and Oakland Raiders each will play one home game in London next year at Wembley Stadium. The dates of the games and opponents for each club will be announced later this season. “Our fans in the UK have continued to demonstrate that they love football and want more,” Goodell said. “Both of this year’s games in London sold out quickly. The fan enthusiasm for our sport continues to grow. By playing two games in the UK this year, we are creating more fans. We hope that with three games in London next year we will attract even more people to our game.”
