Some Dolphins are playing for their jobs on Thursday

in Sports by

This week’s Thursday Night Football Game in Cincinnati features two teams with 1-2 records.

Jaguars tumble to 1-5, as season of despair turns tragicomic

in Sports/Top Headlines by

A battle of 1-4 teams in Jacksonville, between the Houston Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars, started off with what one might call optimism. Vegas liked the Jags, for once. One point favorites! Then, once inactives were announced, a seeming reason to take the point. Jaguars running back TJ Yeldon was out. Bad groin. Plodder Toby Gerhart was in. Even against one of the worst rushing defenses in the NFL, seventy snaps of Gerhart didn’t seem like it would “bust a grape…
