JACKSONVILLE , Fla. (AP) — Blake Bortles is no longer Jacksonville’s starting quarterback.Whether he regains the job in the next week is anybody’s guess.Bortles fumbled on the team’s third play of each half, leading to 10 points and his benching in a 20-7 loss to AFC South rival Houston on Sunday.Coach Doug Marrone yanked Bortles after the second turnover — his eighth in three games — and gave former Cleveland starter Cody Kessler a shot.Marrone gave no indication afterward if Bortles or Kessler would be under center when the reeling Jaguars (3-4) play a “home game” against Philadelphia (3-4) in London next week.“It’s open,” Marrone said. “Who’s the starter at right tackle? Who’s the starter at center? Who’s the starter at receiver? Who’s the starter? Everything is open. We’ve lost three straight games and we can’t stop shooting ourselves in the foot for lack of a better expression. … We’ve got to do something, but the first thing we’ve got to do is stop turning the damn ball over. Period. That would be the positive of how we can build.”Jacksonville’s third consecutive lopsided loss triggered quarterback indecision and heated commotion .When the locker room doors opened for media members, Calais Campbell could be seen holding back fellow defensive end Yannick Ngakoue. It was carry-over from an emotional postgame that included screaming, shouting and finger pointing.“You all walk in here, you all see how it is in here, you all see how we vibe with each other, you all see how we vibe toward the coaches, you all see how it is,” cornerback Jalen Ramsey said. “It is no secret what’s going on here right now. Ain’t nobody going to say it because we can’t. But it ain’t no secret what’s going on and it ain’t right right now.”Ngakoue declined comment, as did safety Tashaun Gipson and cornerback A.J. Bouye.Their silence spoke volumes for a team that appears to be in upheaval — a huge fall after starting the season with Super Bowl expectations.“I don’t speak on locker room business,” linebacker Telvin Smith said. “Don’t ask me locker room questions.”Not everyone ducked the obvious.“Be frustrated. Be frustrated all week. Change something,” defensive tackle Malik Jackson said. “Change something you need to do. We need to look ourselves in the mirror and just fix it. I can’t sit here and tell you what we need to fix, what we need to do, what needs to be done. I don’t know. I just know that we need to be where we’re supposed to be and just . something needs to change.”The Texans (4-3) don’t need to change anything after a fourth consecutive victory gave them a one-game lead in the division.Deshaun Watson threw for a touchdown after making the 800-mile trip to Jacksonville on a private bus to avoid potential problems that flying and cabin pressure might pose to his bruised lung and injured ribs. Lamar Miller ran for 100 yards and a score . And the defense did the rest, forcing three turnovers and sacking Kessler four times.Houston hosts Miami (4-3) on Thursday night.“We were down and out and everybody was counting us out Logan Cooke Color Rush Jersey ,” Texans linebacker Whitney Mercilus said. “The thing is, we have guys on this team who understand that early on it doesn’t matter. We just put our heads down and kept working and now we have to continue to do the same thing.”Here are some other things we learned about the Texans and Jaguars:HAL STARTSTexans safety Andre Hal, who returned to practice this week following treatment for Hodgkin’s lymphoma, was in the starting lineup. Hal was diagnosed with the disease in May and immediately began treatment. He received the news of his remission last month. The game was emotional because his father, Andre Hal Sr., died Tuesday, a few days suffering a heart attack.“This was good for my dad,” Hal said. “He wanted me back on the field and I know he was watching me there today. … People didn’t really think I’d come back, but I knew I would come back. It was cool seeing everyone kind of show some love to me.”ONE-HANDED CATCHDeAndre Hopkins won several one-on-one matchups against Ramsey. His best was a one-handed catch for 31 yards along the sideline in the first quarter.“That catch at the beginning of the game really got us going,” Texans coach Bill O’Brien said. “He made some big plays for us. That’s Hop.”ANOTHER SHUTOUTThe Jaguars failed to score in the first half for the third straight week, the first time they’ve done that in franchise history. They have been outscored 57-0 in the opening two quarters in losses to Kansas City, Dallas and Houston. The Jacksonville Jaguars try to atone their winless 2017 record against the Tennessee Titans at TIAA Bank Field at 1:00pm EST.UNIFORM WATCH: White tops and teal trousers for Sunday.OpponentThe 1-1 Titans have played at an 0-2 caliber to start the season and first year head coach Mike Vrabel had to dig deep into his bag of tricks to score on a fake punt from his own territory to sneak a win against the Houston Texans last week. The Jaguars will need to be extremely conservative on special teams to make sure that this doesn’t happen, as this is really the only way I can see the Titans stealing a win this week, a la the Rams game last year.Offensively, the Titans are somewhat in shambles under first year offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur. We still don’t know whether Marcus Mariota or Blaine Gabbert will get the start this weekend, but Mariota has looked so lost in the new system that Jags fans should almost be hoping he gets the nod from a tactical aspect. There has been absolutely no chemistry with the wide receivers (especially last year’s fifth overall pick Corey Davis), and their most targeted playmaker from last season in Delanie Walker has already been sidelined for the rest of 2018 with an ankle injury. What was once the exotic smash mouth running game now actually resembles Smash Mouth singer Steven Harwell trying to tote the rock Andrew Norwell Jersey , and Derrick Henry is averaging less than three yards per carry with Dion Lewis getting the majority of snaps. Most notably, the Titans usual stalwarts at offensive tackle in Taylor Lewan (concussion) and Jack Conklin (ACL) have been sidelined due to injury, but both returned to practice this week and will return on Sunday. Yannick Ngakoue will be anxious to knock the rust out of them. Defensively, the Titans may not have top shelf personnel across all eleven positions, but they have certainly taken on the gritty persona of their head coach. The unit plays hard and could be boosted with rookie linebackers Rashaan Evans and Harold Landry playing meaningful snaps after being hampered by injuries. Along the defensive line, Jurrell Casey has been a problem for this franchise but has yet to face former first team All-Pro guard in Andrew Norwell. Blake Bortles will need to stay away from throwing at impressive free safety Kevin Byard, who had eight interceptions in 2017.For more information on the Titans, check out Ryan O’Bleness’ crossover piece with Jimmy Morris of Music City Miracles.StorylinesWith last week’s signature win against New England, the Jaguars have now won their last seven consecutive home games, and Blake Bortles has become the first Jaguars quarterback to begin the season 2-0 since 2006. Midweek reports indicated that there were still around 5,000 tickets still available for purchase, and the team will need our support to give the players the home field advantage that they thrive off of:Another popular storyline that has surfaced among the fan base this week is whether or not the Jaguars offense is better off without Leonard Fournette, and a general feeling exists that Fournette hamstrings the creativity of Nathaniel Hackett and his personnel packaging and play calling. We’ll see this week, but Bortles’ answering of the bell last week has inspired increased confidence from his teammates and the rest of the media, and we may have seen a critical turning point for the offense. If it were up to me, I would study the different ways that Sean McVay uses last year’s AP Offensive Player of the Year Toddy Gurley and use Fournette, a much better pass catcher than given credit for , in a similar capacity.Most importantly, a two game lead in the division is at stake and a win could really help the Jaguars start to pull away as the leader in the AFC South after just three games. The Colts have a tough match up this week against a Philadelphia Eagles team with Carson Wentz returning and the Texans square off against a hungry and winless New York Giants team, so this could really give the Jaguars some wiggle room which could allow them to rest some key veteran starters late into the season if they can clinch the division early.Key matchupsJosh Wells vs. Brian OrakpoOne of the few match ups that worry me, Wells will need to step up in the wake of Cam Robinson’s season-ending knee injury and give Blake the time he needs in the pocket. Wells played exceptionally well in spot duty last week but the Titans now have a week to prepare for him and Brian Orakpo is the type of veteran pass rusher who can exploit Wells’ weaknesses with a variety of rush moves.Andrew Norwell vs. Jurrell CaseyBriefly referenced above, Norwell will need to earn his big game check this week going against the Titans’ best defensive player. Casey has been a thorn in the Jaguars side for the last several years and Norwell will have to flash that mean streak in the run game to move Casey off his spot and create some seals for Fournette.Keelan Cole vs. Malcolm ButlerKeelan Cole turned the heads of everybody in the league last week with his spectacular one handed catch, but his job doesn’t get much easier this week going against Malcolm Butler. Butler plays a much more physical brand of football than Stephon Gilmore or Eric Rowe did last week and he will have to show his strength to beat press coverage and win at the point of attack. Expect the Titans to play lots of man press coverage and speedster Adoree Jackson to shadow Dede Westbrook on the other side. Yannick Ngakoue vs. Taylor Lewan/Jack ConklinNgakoue has zero sacks and fans are overreacting about it. Taylor Lewan won’t be quite himself after getting a little Windmill Wisdom knocked into him by Andre Branch in week one and Yannick has absolutely owned Conklin all the way back to the Maryland/Michigan State days. Nsackoue comes back this week, folks. Blaine Gabbert vs. Jaguars FansI mentioned earlier that Mariota may be a more attractive option from a tactical perspective for the Jaguars, but where’s the fun in tactics? Not only are Jaguars fans scorned by the aloof persona and lack of ROI from Gabbert’s era in Jacksonville, but there is extra salt in this wound after losing on the road to Gabbert’s Arizona Cardinals last season. If Gabbert does play, the roar of the crowd whenever he gets hit or knocked down will be deafening. Even if he doesn’t play, I would ask the equipment manager for some earmuffs or noise-cancelling headphones sitting on the bench if I were him. He don’t want this smoke.Final predictionIf it were any other team outside of the Titans, I would be incredibly leery of a hangover following an epic win like the one they had this past week against Brady and the Pats. Due to the animosity woven into the fabric of this rivalry, I sincerely doubt that this will be the case. This team has gone on record to say that the Titans were simply more physical than them in both losses last season, and I fully expect the defense to punch them in the mouth regardless of takes that first snap under center.This team doesn’t forget. This team will embarrass you.Jaguars win 35-13.

I can show you all the sports, strength, and even passion. Welcome, I sincerely serve you, everything is for you. You can call me "Lin" and welcome to our sports kingdom—— We will be happy to serve you.
