The Jaguars won an ugly one 13-6 to hand the Texans their 7th straight loss. Rookie Ace Sanders was a factor in the pass game and caught 4 passes for 61 yards. Henne was effective and passed for 239 yards, no touchdowns nor interceptions. Mo-Jo Drew played extremely well, combining 144 yards rushing and receiving for a touchdown. Andre Branch responded well from his last game and earned a sack and a pass deflection. Geno Hayes had himself a nice game while Paul Posluszny clogged the run game. Rookies Jonathan Cyprien, Dwayne Gratz and Ace Sanders all played well.
There are 2 teams with 2-9 records (other than the Jaguars) which are the Atlanta Falcons and Houston Texans. Two playoff teams last year, who saw that coming? Certainly not me. Depending on how Minnesota and Tampa Bay fare they could end up with the same record. *UPDATE: Tampa Bay won their game vs Detroit ; Minnesota Ties Green Bay.* The Jaguars are now playing decent football, and some may question whether they will be able to get the #1 pick in the draft . Jacksonville isn't nearly as good as any of these teams, they're just simply playing bad football.
With 5 games remaining the schedule isn't as difficult as previously. The Jags take on Tennessee, Houston (Our only wins) and Buffalo at home. A 10-22 combined record within those teams. Next week Jacksonville takes on the Cleveland Browns on the road who are coming off of 2 straight losses. The Jaguars then take on Indianapolis in the season finale who previously slaughtered us 37-3.
Jacksonville still holds the first pick, but is now consistently playing like a real NFL team (kinda) and it could coust us the pick. So does Jacksonville get the #1 pick, or not?
