It was 2-5-1 after eight games last year … Jaguars rookie QB Gardner Minshew did a great job filling in for Nick Foles, but Jacksonville is going back to the Super Bowl LII MVP on the other side of its upcoming bye. Minshew turned the ball over four times last week in his worst performance of 2019, almost surely opening the door more than a crack … Houston had more takeaways (4) than points allowed (3) in its first game this season without injured star DE J.J.
