Jaguars unsure how carries will be split

espn.go.com — JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Denard Robinson carried the ball 22 times for 127 yards and a touchdown in the Jacksonville Jaguars' 24-6 victory over Cleveland last Sunday. He might have more touches in Sunday's game against Miami. Or fewer.

Jacksonville Jaguars

espn.go.com — A weekly look at what the Jaguars must fix: Playing a rookie quarterback means dealing with a lot of mistakes as he goes through the learning process, but the Jacksonville Jaguars need Blake Bortles to start cutting down on his interceptions beginning with Sunday's home game against the Miami Dolphins.

Jacksonville Jaguars

espn.go.com — JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars were able to overcome quarterback Blake Bortles' worst game as a starter thanks to a defense that has continually improved over the last three weeks and beat Cleveland for the team's first victory in 2014.

espn.go.com — JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- When it comes to forcing turnovers, it seems it's pretty much all or nothing for the Jacksonville Jaguars defense. On Sunday, it was everything. The unit forced three in Sunday's 24-6 victory over the Cleveland Browns at EverBank Field, which was one fewer than the total the team had entering the game.

Denard Robinson could be a building block

espn.go.com — JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- In his brief time with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Denard Robinson has been a wide receiver, a Wildcat quarterback, and, finally, a running back. After what he did on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns at EverBank Field, he may have added another role: Building block.

Jacksonville Jaguars

espn.go.com — I'm not sure if the Jacksonville Jaguars' defense is really getting better or if the improvement over the past two weeks is due to the fact that the opposing offenses weren't any good.

Trading places: Jaguars pick a different identity

espn.go.com — JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Each Thursday I'll post a blog in which five players answer a question that has nothing to do with football. Hopefully it's a way for you to get to know the players a little better. Some weeks, it will be a fun question.

Jacksonville Jaguars

espn.go.com — Every Thursday I'll present an interesting (to me, anyway) stat, break it down, and try to provide some context heading into the game the following weekend. The 300 club [+] Enlarge Quarterback Blake Bortles threw for 336 yards in last Sunday's 16-14 loss to Tennessee, which made him only the second rookie quarterback in team history to throw for 300 yards.
