Jacksonville Jaguars' run defense couldn't have done more -
New York Jets running back Chris Ivory scored two touchdowns. But, the Jaguars run defense pitched a near-perfect game on Sunday in a 28-23 loss. Ivory entered the game with 518 yards rushing in the team’s first seven games.

Why Jets' Lorenzo Mauldin was so good at pass rushing -
Lorenzo Mauldin, the Jets' rookie outside linebacker, had the best game of his young career Sunday, in a 28-23 win over the Jaguars. The Jets hurried Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles 14 times, including six sacks. There were opportunities for the Jets' pass rushers, because Bortles holds the ball for a long time, and looks to throw downfield. Even when he uses his mobility, he does it to move around in the pocket, still looking to throw, rather than scramble.
