Jacksonville Jaguars players talk election results, medicinal marijuana -
Believe it or not, the Jaguars players were just as fixated on this election as the rest of the country on Tuesday night. In the weeks leading up to the showdown between now-president elect Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, the locker room constantly discussed politics. Now - after all that talk - they're discussing the results.

Who was at fault for each sack in Week 9? -
The Jacksonville Jaguars played tight against the Kansas City Chiefs and the box score looked encouraging -- you go on the road in one of the toughest places to play and hold a 5-2 team to just a 19-14 win. Until you see that the Chiefs were playing backup quarterback Nick Foles, third-string running back Charcanderick West, a host of backup defenders, and a backup offensive lineman or two. Oh, and Jeremy Maclin didn’t play and Travis Kelce was thrown out of the game in the third quarter.

Can Texans run defense improve against the Jaguars? -
The Houston Texans' run defense has been inconsistent this season, and enters the second half ranked 28th in the NFL, allowing an average of 125.8 yards per game. Defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel said that is something the coaching staff and players are focused on improving. That will be a challenge without three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt, whom the Texans have been without since Week 3 after he reinjured his back and was placed on injured reserve. Last season, Watt led a defense that was 10th in the league in rushing defense, giving up less than 100 yards per game.
