Allen Robinson caught 6-of-15 targets for 70 yards in the Jaguars' Week 8 loss to the Titans.
DeMarco Murray rushed 21 times for 123 yards and a touchdown in Tennessee's Week 8 win over the Jaguars.
Murray added a five-yard reception. Murray was chewing up easy yardage all evening, making his one cut and getting off to the races. He was making it look too easy, though the Jags admittedly helped in that department. Now up to 756 yards rushing, Murray has already surpassed his 2015 total for the Eagles (702). He's been reborn away from Chip Kelly's figured-out offense. Murray will keep operating as a top-five RB1 against the Chargers in Week 9.
Blake Bortles compled 33-of-54 passes for 337 yards and three touchdowns in Jacksonville's 36-22, Week 8 loss to the Titans.
Don't believe everything you read on the internet. Bortles was utterly horrendous, and frankly, lucky not to get benched. His stats do not tell the story of a quarterback who was tossing painful wobblers all evening. His motion has become a cross between side-armed Matthew Stafford and Tim Tebow. At times it looked like he was trying to toss a fully-baked turkey. All of Bortles' "production" came in garbage time. He was 8-of-16 for 64 yards as the Jags trailed 27-0 at halftime. Bortles was bad enough to get his coach fired, something that seems like a distinct Friday possibility. Bortles will be a bottom-barrel QB2 against the Chiefs in Week 9.
Marcus Mariota completed 18-of-22 passes for 270 yards and two touchdowns in Tennessee's 36-22, Week 8 win over the Jaguars.
He added three carries for 11 yards. The game was not as close as the score, and Mariota's stats would have been even more impressive had the Titans not buried the Jags so early. Mariota was 16-of-19 for 219 yards and a touchdown as the Titans went into the break winning 27-0. Mariota was delivering perfect strikes all night, the best of which was a feathery 36-yarder to Kendall Wright on play action for a touchdown. Awful earlier this season, Mariota now has 11 touchdowns over his past four games. He'll be in the QB1 mix against the Chargers next week.
DeMarco Murray (foot) returned for the second half of Thursday's game against the Jaguars.
Murray tweaked his foot in non-contact fashion late in the first half, but got things worked out in the locker room. Murray has been gashing the Jags' disappearing defense, and is well on his way to an RB1 finish.
DeMarco Murray headed to the locker room late in the first half of Thursday's game against the Jaguars after tweaking his leg.
Murray pulled up at the end of an impressive 13-yard run. He threw down the ball in anger before heading to the sideline. He then walked slowly to the locker room as the Titans finished a potential scoring drive. Murray was eating before going down, taking the rock 13 times for 82 yards and a touchdown. It's possible he'll return for the second half.
Cody Kessler (concussion) "could" get cleared on Friday.
It sounds like there's a decent chance Kesller gets cleared on Friday, but coach Hue Jackson has already intimated Josh McCown will be his Week 8 starter. The Browns don't want to start Kessler when he's missed so much practice. Jackson recently called Kessler "our starter." Even if he's relegated to back-up duties this week, we'd guess he starts Week 9.
Jimmy Graham returned to Seahawks practice Thursday, getting in a full session.
The Seahawks will manage Graham's practice reps for the rest of the season, but he's all the way back from his knee injury. He's been beasting, and has a dream Week 8 matchup against his former team that also doubles as a #RevengeGame.
