Blackouts have been a part of the NFL since the 1950s, when team owners believed showing local games would damage attendance. The league said it will evaluate the impact of the suspension after the season.
The 29-year-old Jones-Drew had 1,313 yards in his final three seasons — fewer than he had in each of the previous three years.
In the aftermath of the Jets’ disastrous 4-12 season that resulted in his firing, former general manager John Idzik disappeared from public view. But now it looks like he’s resurfaced, albeit 1,000 or so miles away.
After interviewing for at least three NFL head coaching jobs, Marrone landed with the Jacksonville Jaguars as assistant head coach and offensive line coach Tuesday.
The Cincinnati Bengals haven’t won an NFL playoff game since January 6, 1990. They beat the Houston Oilers—right there, that tells you it was a long time ago—by a 41-14 score in the wild-card round of the AFC playoffs. Since then, the Bengals have lost all five postseason contests they’ve played in. That needs to change this weekend.
In a battle of 2-12 teams, Jacksonville overcame a slow start to earn a 21-13 win. It wasn’t a masterpiece—the Jaguars totaled just 288 yards—but it wasn’t sloppy either. The game featured no turnovers and just 10 combined penalties.
Jordan Todman juked one defender and stiff-armed another on his way to a 62-yard touchdown run that helped the Jacksonville Jaguars beat the Tennessee Titans 21-13 on Thursday night.
You’ve probably been going to Tennessee tight end Delanie Walker most of the year, and he’s been quite productive with 793 yards and four TDs. However, he is highly questionable with a knee problem, and he cannot be recommended.
Two teams that have nothing to gain this season, but a lot to gain for next year, will battle it out on “Thursday Night Football.” The future of the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars is quite cloudy right now, but a lot is on the line this week and CBS Sports’ Steve Beuerlein took time to discuss the match-up between two very young teams.
If you’re wondering how Tennessee and Jacksonville, with their combined four wins, could be playing on a Thursday night at this point in the season, it’s because every NFL team is guaranteed at least one primetime game and the Thursday match-ups are decided before the season.
With their playoff hopes essentially extinguished by a six-game losing streak, the Giants insist they are still focused on 2014, and they’ll try for a desperately needed victory when they visit the woeful Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.
So you think it can’t get any worse for the 3-8 Giants? Just imagine if they fall to the Jaguars (1-10) in Jacksonville on Sunday.
Coming off a sixth straight loss, Eli Manning on Monday said it’s time for the team to start doing things right. It’s time for the Giants to win a game.
The Patriots being all alone in last place means absolutely nothing as far as the rest of the season is concerned. In terms of comedic value, however, it’s fantastic.
It may be ugly at times in 2014, but Bortles will be unnerved and will benefit by going through any growing pains this fall as the Jaguars have much work to do before competing in the AFC South.
