Gus Bradley and the Jacksonville Jaguars want to win games, but fans rightfully want the team selecting first overall in the 2014 draft. They did the former on Sunday, beating the Houston Texans to improve to 2-9, but the latter just got a lot more complicated.
With the Texans falling to 2-9 that leaves Houston, Jacksonville, and the Atlanta Falcons all tied with the worst record in the NFL. Though the playoff standings are determined with head-to-head records, the draft order leaves it up to strength of schedule, so it will depend on how the rest of the season plays out.
As of now, there are three teams at 2-9. The 2-8 Tampa Bay Buccaneers and 2-8 Minnesota Vikings currently hold slight leads in their games as of this writing.
Case Keenum and the Texans really struggled to move the ball on Sunday, gaining just 218 total yards against the worst scoring defense in the NFL. It appears that their stumble in the 2013 season might just leave them with the top pick in the 2014 draft.
The Texans and Jaguars meet again on Thursday night in Week 14.
Fantasy Studs and Duds
Maurice Jones-Drew had 84 rushing yards, 60 receiving yards, and a touchdown.
The Texans' Andre Johnson was held to just 36 receiving yards on two catches.
Jaguars backup running back Justin Forsett left the game with a foot injury.
Did They Cover?
The Texans were 10-point favorites according to OddsShark.com, so they obviously did not cover.
The Texans take on the New England Patriots at home on Sunday, Dec. 1, at 1 p.m. ET.
The Jags hit the road to play the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, Dec. 1, at 1 p.m ET.
