Jaguars had Jacksonville, Hurricane Irma in mind while in Houston

Jaguars had Jacksonville, Hurricane Irma in mind while in Houston”

A few eyes rolled before the topic could even be fully introduced.

Jacksonville Jaguars' first home game of the season will go ahead as scheduled in the wake of Hurricane Irma, the team and Jacksonville mayor Lenny Curry announced.

As I previously stated, the running game was the key to Jacksonville's first win this season and they just bullied the Texans up front.

After earning that pivotal win in Week 1, the Jaguars will be able to earn national recognition if they're able to defeat the Titans. "This Sunday is a great opportunity for us", Mariota said. Defensively, Jacksonville is allowing seven points and 203 yards per game.

"You really can't worry about where you're going to play", Mularkey said. "If you do blitz, Marcus will hurt you with his legs". A loss would leave them in an early hole in the division race.

As the Titans head into this game, it will be hard not to think about last year's disaster.

The best way to slow down pass rushers, as Jones noted, is with an effective run game.

He didn't do a lot against Houston (26 carries, 100 yards). At no time during the four preseason games did the No. 1 O-line perform to the precision that it did against the Texans.

"We gotta get the win". A converted defensive end, Parnell bounced around to several teams to start his career but came into his own as a reserve for the Dallas Cowboys and is now a starter for the Jaguars.

They didn't do a bad job against the Raiders and Marshawn Lynch. But when it comes down on Sunday, if my mom was wearing a different color jersey I would run her over. "At the end of the day, physical play is what our head coach wants from us". Myles Jack leads the Jacksonville Jaguars with 14 tackles, Yannick Ngakoue has two sacks and Tashaun Gipson has one interception. Walker will make sure to get his share of chips in on Campbell though.

The Titans running back became a star at Yulee High - in between Amelia Island and Jacksonville - before heading to the University of Alabama, where he won a Heisman Trophy.

"It's definitely a chance for myself personally and, obviously, this organization that has struggled over the past couple of years to rewrite the narrative and change the script on what our perception is in the league and the world as a football team", Bortles said Wednesday on a conference call with Nashville media, ahead of a Week 2 game against the Tennessee Titans. "To go to Houston where a week ago Harvey had kind of hit there and see that and talk to the people there, and while we were there knowing Irma was hitting home and hitting Florida, kind of affecting our families and then coming back, we got back yesterday, and seeing all the trees fallen down, all the stuff".

"We just played the defensive player of the year and how many sacks did he have?"
