Ticked-off Mosley says Jets not being respected by opponents
C.J. Mosley felt the disrespect when the Philadelphia Eagles didn't shake hands at midfield during the pregame coin toss. The New York Jets linebacker saw it when he said Fletcher Cox laughed at Robert Saleh as the coach argued with officials about a call. “At the end of the day, it's all about respect,” Mosley said after a 33-18 loss Sunday.news.yahoo.com
Jaguars sign QB Beathard, setting up potential Minshew trade
The Jacksonville Jaguars signed former San Francisco 49ers quarterback C.J. Beathard on Wednesday, March 24, 2021, giving them an experienced backup if they trade Gardner Minshew.

That also makes him a potential trade option, especially with the Jaguars looking to rebuild under Meyer and new general manager Trent Baalke.
Jaguars fire Marrone; owner Khan plans to be more involved
Now, after nine NFL seasons and little success on the field, the Jacksonville Jaguars owner is taking a more hands-on approach to fixing the franchise's most glaring problems. Khan is handling the search for his next coach and general manager mostly alone, with some help from Jaguars President Mark Lamping. “This time around, I think I have a much better sense myself,” Khan said Monday after firing coach Doug Marrone. “What's evaded the history of the Jags really has been a franchise quarterback,” Khan said. Khan kept Marrone in place after firing general manager Dave Caldwell in late November, but ultimately decided on a clean sweep.

Lamar Jackson threw three touchdown passes and ran for a score to carry the Ravens (9-5) to their third straight win following a three-game skid. Robinson was limited to 35 yards rushing before leaving in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury.

Henry runs wild, Titans hand Jags 12th straight loss, 31-10
Enjoying a big performance about 25 miles from his hometown of Yulee was something new for Henry. He managed just 13 yards as a rookie in 2016, followed by outings of 92, 57 and 44 yards in front of friends and family. Henry had 170 yards on 17 carries in the first 30 minutes, including a 36-yard touchdown run. He added a 47-yard scamper early in the third as the Titans (9-4) started to pull away. AFC South-leading Tennessee clinched its fifth consecutive winning season and moved a step closer to securing a playoff berth.

The Chargers and Falcons are tied at 17 midway through the fourth quarter. Kenny Moore also starred for the Colts with a spectacular one-handed, diving end-zone interception in the second quarter. Adams didn’t do much other than run the scrambling Darnold to the sideline midway through the second quarter. Seattle took its opening possession and got 19-yard touchdown pass from Russell Wilson to Freddie Swain. Mack also recovered a Duke Johnson fumble in the first quarter and deflected a Watson pass in the second quarter.

(AP Photo/Phelan M. Ebenhack)JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Quarterback Mike Glennon is getting another start for the Jacksonville Jaguars even though Gardner Minshew is fully healthy. Coach Doug Marrone said Wednesday he’s sticking with Glennon at Minnesota (5-6) on Sunday. It probably helped that Glennon was solid in his first start since Week 4 of the 2017 season. Glennon didn’t have a turnover — the first time since the season opener Jacksonville played a clean game — and wasn’t sacked. “There’s no doubt that we are going to try to win every single game that we play,” Marrone said.
Steelers' Roethlisberger active after virus-related absence
The unbeaten Pittsburgh Steelers wound up relatively healthy for their game against the AFC North rival Cincinnati Bengals following a brush with the novel coronavirus. Defensive tackle Tyson Alualu is also back after missing a game with a knee injury. Cincinnati is without running back Joe Mixon, whose lingering foot injury is forcing him to miss a third game in a row. Receiver Cooper Kupp, left tackle Andrew Whitworth and running back Darrell Henderson all were active after missing practices with injuries. Raiders: T Kolton Miller (ankle), DT Maurice Hurst (ankle), QB Marcus Mariota, RB Theo Riddick, G John Simpson, DT Daniel Ross.
The Latest: Home teams now 65-65-1 in this pandemic season
That means that going into tonight’s Saints-Buccaneers showdown, home teams are 65-65-1 so far this season. That homefield advantage has largely been erased with sparse crowds or no fans at games because of the coronavirus pandemic. Las Vegas though has taken control on its first two drives of the second half. Neither had started an NFL game, but both have been in the league much longer than DiNucci. The Tennessee Titans already lost left tackle Taylor Lewan for the season, and now they are without left guard Rodger Saffold.

Watson tosses 3 TDs as Texans get 1st win, 30-14 over Jags
HOUSTON – Deshaun Watson threw for a season-high 359 yards and three touchdowns and the Houston Texans got their first win of the season with a 30-14 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday in the wake of coach Bill O’Brien’s firing. It was recovered by Whitney Mercilus, who fumbled on the return, but the Texans pounced on the ball to keep it. Houston (1-4) pushed the lead to 30-14 when Watson found Brandin Cooks on a 28-yard touchdown pass on fourth-and-4 with about five minutes remaining. The Texans were able to overcome two interceptions by Watson by taking advantage of two fumbles by the Jaguars. They entered the game allowing an NFL-worst 181.8 yards a game, but limited the Jaguars to 75 on Sunday.

Fitzpatrick completed his first 12 passes — a career high — as Miami scored touchdowns on its first three drives for the first time since 2011. Fitzpatrick also ran for 39 yards and a score, his 37-year-old legs looking as fresh as any in Miami’s backfield. “As a group we just didn't get it done,” said Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew, who completed 30 of 42 passes for 275 yards and two turnovers. The Jaguars have won two in a row against the Bengals, notching victories in 2017 and 2019.

So the Titans turned to Tannehill, the quarterback who led the NFL in 2019 with a 117.5 passer rating. Tannehill opened the game finding a wide-open Jonnu Smith for 63 yards before hitting Smith for a 13-yard TD two plays later.

If they can't pressure Minshew or stop Leonard Fournette then it could be a long day in London.
Texans to play against one of the most interesting players in the NFL
Getty ImagesLONDON - It's not every week the Houston Texans play against one of the most interesting players in the NFL, and even rarer that they play overseas. In London, in a de facto road game, the Texans will face the Jacksonville Jaguars who are far more attuned to England than any other NFL team. Minshew threw for 213 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions against a far healthier Texans defense in Week 2. Starting cornerbacks Bradley Roby and Lonnie Johnson and starting safety Tashaun Gipson are injured and back in Houston. Jahleel Addae is the Texans third safety and has been a capable fill-in.

Texans-Jaguars Tale of the Tape
Minshew was borderline spectacular last week in his NFL debut in relief of the injured Nick Foles, completing 22-of-25 passes with a pair of touchdowns and one interception. Watson is one of the league's elite playmakers but is also the only quarterback to get sacked six times in week one. Edge: TEXANSRBCarlos Hyde and Duke Johnson provided much more in the ground game, than could have been expected as each were making their Texans debut. Houston will like to see top draft pick Tytus Howard make his NFL debut this week at left guard as he recovers from a broken finger suffered during training camp. The Jaguars have had great success against the Texans over the years, including last year's season finale when they sacked Watson six times.
