Jacksonville Jaguars pile up injuries vs. New Orleans Saints -
The Jacksonville Jaguars are limping into the regular-season finale. Five starters and two key reserves are injured heading into this week's game at Houston, including both offensive tackles. It's too early in the week to determine availability, but it's likely that several will not be able to play against the Texans.

Latest loss shows need for Jaguars defensive overhaul -
The Jacksonville Jaguars have one final chance to fix their porous defense this season. But it seems unlikely that is going to happen. The Jaguars (5-10) allowed 537 yards in a 38-27 loss at New Orleans on Sunday, more proof that coach Gus Bradley's defense needs a complete overhaul in the offseason.

Jaguars puttering around locker room -
It doesn't take long for professional football players to take something and turn it into a contest in the locker room. Take, for example, a couple of golf balls, a putter, and a putting cup. They were an early Christmas gift from Drew Straitt, an intern on the Jacksonville Jaguars' equipment staff, to the offensive line.

Evaluating Gus Bradley outside of win-loss record -
Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley has been criticized roundly for little (if any) improvements over the course of his three seasons with the team. But most of our reasoning comes down to win-loss record that, while important, doesn't paint the fullest picture of where he's going wrong.
