Denver lost the game to the Jags because they wanted Elam to kick from the center of the field. It was an unforced fumble by Quentin Griffin. That wasn't a win as much as a loss by the Broncos. It was also in Florida instead of Denver.
I could care less where ESPN has the Texans ranked. The fact of the matter is when it comes to Jacksonville the Texans have big time Scoreboard. Carr has lost only 1 game to the Jags in his brief career. Taylor started the first game but came out limp as usual. Leftwich only missed a few plays in the first matchup. He was pulled because he stunk up the joint in the rematch.
I don't remember Jacksonville giving up the 27-0 win last season against a Texans team with Ragone in his first game ever and Hollings in his first start.
On a side note, Brees threw for 3200 yards in his 2nd season, his first season as a starter, and 17 TDs. . He slipped up last season behind a bad line and Marty's QB juggling job. He didn't take longer to develop. Favre threw for 3200 yards and 18 TDs in his 2nd season, also his first as a starter. Carr was hurt much of his 2nd season so it's hard to tell where he is, but I've watched him lead the Texans back against good teams and trade scoring drives with the best in the game as well.
