in Sports/Top Headlines by

Jack Del Rio’s return to EverBank Field was a happy one as his Oakland Raiders stuffed the Jacksonville Jaguars 33-16 on Sunday. The former Jacksonville coach saw his team win ugly, but as the late Raiders’ owner Al Davis was known for saying: “Just win, baby.” “Lot of good memories here, lot of good friends,” said Del Rio. “It’s good to come back and to have a good effort here in this stadium.” Unfortunately for Jaguars’ fans, the pre-winning streak…

On Sunday, they gave it to another team on the chin, for…
