Jaguars taste first sweet victory

At some point, even if they won’t admit it, Gus Bradley and his Jacksonville Jaguars must have wondered if a victory would come this season.

They can stop wondering.

Maurice Jones-Drew and Jordan Todman each ran for a touchdown, and the Jaguars held off the Tennessee Titans 29-27 Sunday.

The Jaguars (1-8) scored the most points in a game this season for first-year coach Bradley. They never trailed and forced four turnovers they turned into 17 points.

“It’s definitely a great feeling,” Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne said. “Hopefully we can build on this.”

Baltimore looks to build on its thrilling 20-17 overtime win against Cincinnati, which came only after the defending Super Bowl champions blew a 17-0 lead and allowed a 51-yard desperation TD pass on the final play of regulation. Justin Tucker made a 46-yard field goal to win it.

Also Sunday, it was Carolina 10, San Francisco 9; Denver 28, San Diego 20; Seattle 33, Atlanta 10; Detroit 21, Chicago 19; St. Louis 38, Indianapolis 8; Philadelphia 27, Green Bay 13; New Orleans 49, Dallas 17; Arizona 27, Houston 24; the New York Giants 24, Atlanta 20; and Pittsburgh 23, Buffalo 10.

Monday night, it’s Tampa Bay (0-8) hosting Miami (4-4).
