Henry runs into NFL record book as Titans rout Jaguars 30-9
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Under center at the 1-yard line, Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota checked out of a quarterback sneak, and Derrick Henry did the rest — as much with his arms as his legs.

Mark Madden: Steelers-Jags are more closely matched than Steelers Nation thinks
The Steelers-Jacksonville playoff game has great sidebars.
• "Ben Roethlisberger won't throw five interceptions again!" OK. But what if Roethlisberger throws two?
• "Blake Bortles can't beat the Steelers in a playoff game!" OK. But he beat them in Week 5, and Tim Tebow beat the Steelers in a playoff game in 2012.
• The Steelers have the NFL's best receiver, Antonio Brown. Jacksonville has the NFL's best cornerback tandem, Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye.
Last week the fantasy playoffs began with a murderer's row of quarterback matchups — including Russell Wilson and Ben Roethlisberger squaring off against fantasy's two stingiest QB defenses in the Jaguars and Ravens, respectively.
Well, Russ (QB6 overall in Week 14) and Big Ben (QB1) clearly aced their tests. Will two top-shelf WR1s this season — DeAndre Hopkins and A.J. Green — fare similarly well?
Jaguars beat Seahawks 30-24, take outright lead in AFC South
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — After his second interception, Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback A.J. Bouye ran to the sideline and started high-fiving fans.
Just when it seemed like he was done, he turned around, grabbed a cheerleader's pompoms and started dancing.
Speedy Titans receiver Taywan Taylor making most of chances

Jaguars rule out Fournette, Lee for exhibition vs Panthers
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without running back Leonard Fournette, receiver Marqise Lee and cornerback A.J. Bouye for their preseason game against Carolina on Thursday night.
Coach Doug Marrone ruled out all three projected starters Monday, adding that running back T.J. Yeldon (hamstring) and tight end Michael Rivera (hand) also won't play against the Panthers.
If teams could win Super Bowls in March, the Jacksonville Jaguars would be perennial champions.
For the second consecutive year, Jacksonville has been crowned champion of free agency.
A lot of good it did the Jaguars in 2016 when they spent money like it was sand on the Ponte Vedra beach but still finished 3-13.

Hub Arkush: Chicago Bears say goodbye to Cutler, Jeffery; welcome underwhelming names
As NFL free agency opening acts go, Thursday’s was a real “No, they didn’t?”
The Houston Texans' swap with the Cleveland Browns shipping Brock Osweiler out of town was an NBA salary dump deal and I’ve never seen anything quite like it in the NFL.
The New England Patriots just don’t buy talent the way they rushed to the bank for Stephon Gilmore.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars made another huge splash in free agency Thursday, signing three starters expected to make a decent defense dynamic.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have released veteran cornerback Davon House, cutting a former starter who was due to make $6 million in each of the next two seasons.
