Jaguars could enter AFC South race with win over Titans

Sep. 18, 2019 7:45 PM EDT

The AFC South is shaping up as quite a division race. Should the Jaguars win at home Thursday night against the Titans, it would tighten up things early in the season. But Tennessee, ranked 18th in the AP Pro32, is a 1½-point favorite over Jacksonville. The Colts, even without Andrew Luck, and the Texans,...

Sep. 16, 2019 3:09 PM EDT

HOUSTON (AP) — After Lamar Miller went out with a season-ending knee injury in the preseason the Houston Texans needed someone to step in immediately to carry the running game.

Sep. 15, 2019 6:31 PM EDT

HOUSTON (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars could have played it safe on Sunday against the Houston Texans and kicked an extra point after scoring a touchdown with seconds left to likely send the game to overtime.

Texans stop Jags' 2-point conversion to get 13-12 win

Sep. 15, 2019 6:09 PM EDT

HOUSTON (AP) — Justin Reid didn't have to see the play again to know he'd kept Leonard Fournette out of the end zone on a 2-point conversion with seconds left that secured Houston's win over Jacksonville on Sunday.

Saints at Rams in rematch of disputed NFC title game

Sep. 14, 2019 12:06 PM EDT

Throw that flag. For those who have short memories — very short — the last time the Rams and Saints met was in the NFC championship game in the Big Easy.

Jaguars QB Minshew prepares for 1st NFL start against Texans

Sep. 12, 2019 8:55 PM EDT

HOUSTON (AP) — Though Deshaun Watson has been Houston's starting quarterback for a while now, he vividly remembers being thrown into action midgame as a rookie in the team's opener, just as Jacksonville's Gardner Minshew was last week.

Newton's favorite opponent, the Bucs, visit Thursday night

Sep. 11, 2019 5:59 PM EDT

Cam Newton enjoys facing the Buccaneers. The only thing is, this might not be the same Panthers quarterback who has thrown for 29 touchdowns against Tampa Bay. Newton was so-so in the opening loss to the Rams, and his minus-2 yards rushing were a career low. He did go 25 for 38 for 239 yards, but had no...

Week 1 ICYMI: Browns bad as ever; Kyler makes a comeback

Sep. 9, 2019 3:09 AM EDT

Undisciplined. Mistake-prone. Just downright awful. These Cleveland Browns looked a lot like THOSE Cleveland Browns — the ones the fast-growing bandwagon of Browns fans thought, or at least hoped, had been left far back in the rearview mirror. The most hyped team over the NFL offseason racked up 18...
