Jacksonville Jaguars: Top three performers in win over Houston Texans

Fantasy Football Breaking News

Houston Texans center Nick Martin (66) is tended to by the Texans medical staff after injuring his ankle during the third quarter of an NFL football game againt the Jacksonville Jaguars at EverBank Field on Sunday, Dec. 17, 2017, in Jacksonville. Offense, defense, and special teams all played a part in the emphatic victory.

With Robinson (knee) on injured reserve, Hurns (ankle) inactive and Lee (ankle) in the locker room, Mickens and rookie Keelan Cole stepped up.

He completed 21 of 29 passes (72.4 percent) for 326 yards, three touchdowns, no interceptions and a career-best passer rating of 143.8. On the 73-yard play, Bortles threw in 3.21 seconds and Cole caught the pass 18 yards downfield. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor also scored on a 9-yard touchdown run and Shareece Wright and Jordan Poyer intercepted passes by Miami's Jay Cutler on consecutive drives to start the second half.

Mickens averages 11.9 yards on punt returns, and against the Texans he had four receptions for 61 yards and two touchdowns.

The two rookie wide-outs are coming off of back-to-back impact performances, and are quickly making names for themselves.

That's when his body was found in a field by Callis Cutoff Road near Hacks Cross and Winchester in southeast Memphis. According to an affidavit, she told police she saw him leave her home carrying money and a box of drugs.

Blake Bortles is coming off two of his finest performances as an National Football League quarterback, and the insults keep pouring in. Since Shad Khan bought the team in November 2011, the Jaguars had never won more than five games. Bortles has owned December thus far, and that was evident again on Sunday.

Bortles is playing out of his mind right now. It is uncertain what exactly has happened, but something has clicked within himself, and Bortles has become a dependable signal caller.

That's a huge change for Jacksonville, which was an NFL-worst 22-74 over the previous six years and widely considered more of a laughingstock than a postseason contender.

There are plenty of jobs in this world I would personally not enjoy. Campbell is a one-man wrecking ball, whose lone mission is to disrupt and destroy any and all offenses. Malik Jackson had one sack, one hit and two pressures and Yannick Ngakoue had three hits.

The extra opportunities benefited the players and the Jaguars. With that, the Jaguars are as big a threat as any to hoist the Lombardi Trophy in February.
