Jaguars fans enjoyed a rare moment of bliss Sunday while watching Jacksonville dismantle the Texans 29-7 in Houston.
Rookie running back Leonard Fournette set a Jaguars record by becoming the first player in the team’s history to rush for over 100 yards in his debut.
Beckham injured his ankle in the Giants’ second preseason game against the Browns when cornerback Briean Boddy-Calhoun hit him just above the right knee as Beckham landed from a leaping attempt to catch a high pass from Eli Manning.
Beckham has not practiced since suffering the injury, though he was seen doing straight-line running while working with a trainer Wednesday and Thursday.
Beckham, 24, caught 101 passes for 1,367 yards and 10 touchdowns last season. It’s the sixth game he’s missed with the Giants — five due to injury and one stemming from a suspension.
Titans: “The running game isn’t working anymore with DeMarco Murray.”
Run-blocking was Tennessee’s huge asset last season, but the team sputtered on the ground, which reined back Marcus Mariota through the air. Murray, who wore down in the second half of last season, looks like the big mileage is catching up to him. It might be time to feature Derrick Henry soon.
Raiders: “Khalil Mack has a big-time defense around him, too.”
Oakland played over its head, given its significant deficiencies at linebacker and in the secondary behind Mack. It will probably look better than it is again vs. the Jets next week.
