They 38-17 drubbing of the Tennessee Titans broke a nine-game losing streak and made a winner of interim coach Doug Marrone in his first outing. Marrone may have had an immediate impact on his quarterback, Blake Bortles, who had a spectacular day. The former Central Florida star threw for 325 yards and a touchdown without an interception.

Will Vegas and Raiders be a match?

in Sports/Top Headlines by

As much as Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis wishes otherwise, a decision on allowing him to move his franchise to Las Vegas isn’t likely to come anytime soon. That’s not to say it won’t happen.

To Miami Dolphins Coach Dan Campbell, October must seem like so long ago. When he won his first two games after taking over for the fired Joe Philbin, it appeared his team was responding to his leadership. Since that quick start, Miami has lost six of their last eight games. The latest was Sunday’s debacle at San Diego, where the Chargers, largely on the strength of four Danny Woodhead touchdowns, manhandled the Dolphins, 30-14. San Diego broke a five-game home…

San Diego Chargers shock Jacksonville Jaguars out of division title race

in Sports/Top Headlines by

On “Salute to Service” Day at EverBank Field, it was appropriate that the Jacksonville Jaguars hosted the San Diego Chargers. Against their fellow Naval town team, the Jags needed to make a statement. The statement they made?
