HOUSTON -- Despite notching a win that to an extent salvaged their postseason hopes, the Houston Texans havent yet found themselves in position to rest on their laurels.Should the Texans (7-6) defeat the visiting Jacksonville Jaguars (2-11) on Sunday at NRG Stadium, theyll inch one step closer to clinching the AFC South title. Houston would improve to 5-0 in the division with games against the Bengals and Titans remaining, with that finale in Tennessee and the division title likely up for grabs.By beating the Colts in Indianapolis for only the second time in franchise history, the Texans remained in a first-place tie with Tennessee. And while Jacksonville doesnt present a serious threat to disrupting their momentum, the Texans will enter the matchup hamstrung in the passing game, already an offensive weakness.With receivers Jaelen Strong and Braxton Miller on injured reserve, the Texans also have tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz in concussion protocol. Fiedorowicz is second on the team in receptions (48) and receiving touchdowns (two), and third in receiving yards (505). He is a huge loss for a passing attack ranked 30th in the NFL.C.J. is a big part of what weve been doing, obviously, Texans coach Bill OBrien said. Hes had a good year. Hes a guy that does both things well. He blocks well and obviously hes had a good year in the passing game. Id put him in the day-to-day category. Hes played a lot snaps for us this year. Hes pretty banged up but I know hes going to do everything he can to try to play on Sunday. I know that.As far as the passing game goes, I think its a unit that steps up week in and week out. I know it hasnt been the numbers that maybe everybody looks at but I think theres been some consistency in some of the certain routes that we run and things like that. I think our guys understand the game plan. They understand how we want to attack Jacksonville.OBrien might have been hopeful, but it didnt happen as Fiedorowicz was declared out on Friday.Given their roster attrition, the Texans must lean on their prior postseason experience to navigate the final three weeks of the season. There are veterans sprinkled throughout the roster, even some who aided playoff runs elsewhere.The Texans have pointed to marginally improved play from quarterback Brock Osweiler, who in turn believes his experience in Denver last season is beneficial.I was very fortunate in my time in Denver to be a part of playoff teams, be a part of teams that were fighting for playoff positions in the month of December, Osweiler said. Then, obviously, last year I was fortunate to be able to contribute actually on the field. Just like I always talk about in here, theres nothing that replaces game reps.Well, theres nothing that replaces experience of being able to experience the playoffs. So, just being around that team, I think it helps me out big-picture-wise of what to expect this month, how to prepare and how to go about things.The Jaguars have no such expectations. After following a pair of one-possession losses in September with back-to-back victories over the Colts and Bears in October, Jacksonville has dropped eight consecutive games. Four of those losses have come by one score, underscoring how frustrating this season has been for the Jaguars.I think it definitely took us by shock, Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson said of the skid. I think offensively its not something that we thought at all. Unfortunately, it is the position that we are in, but at the end of the day, we are still trying to build some light up and trying to get some momentum heading into next season.That resolution leaves the Jaguars playing the role of spoiler yet again, especially given their closing schedule. After visiting the Texans this weekend, the Jaguars will host the Titans before closing on the road in Indianapolis. With the Colts just one game behind Houston and Tennessee, the Jaguars will have a say in the AFC South.Well, anytime its an AFC South opponent, I think every team in our division is looking at that saying, We all want to own the AFC South, Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said. When you have three opponents like we do the next three games, its a great opportunity. [url=http://www.cheapairjordan3.com/]Cheap Air Jordan 3 From China[/url] .

LAS VEGAS -- Heading into SuperContest Weekend at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, the famed pro football handicapping contest is once again on a record pace.The SuperContest drew 1,727 entries last year at $1,500 apiece for a record purse in excess of $2.5 million and a first-place prize of $906,675, as the contest increased for the sixth straight year. There were concerns that the SuperContests growth could be slowed this year when the Westgate announced an 8 percent administrative fee that would be taken out of the prize pool to cover costs of running the contest, but that hasnt happened yet.At this time last year (heading into the SuperContest Weekend of Friday and Saturday, Aug. 28-29, 2015), there were 694 entries at the close of business on Thursday, Aug. 27.This years entries were at 695 as of this past Monday night and were into the 760s on Wednesday afternoon. With more than 30 hours to go until the close of business on Thursday night, the number should reach into the mid-800s. (Ill post an update in the comments section below.)During the first few weeks since we started taking signups on July 1, we were around 60 to 100 ahead of last year and thought that might slow down due to the 8 percent takeout, said Jay Kornegay, vice president of race & sports book operations at the Westgate, But then we saw a lot of signups last weekend and another spike this week. It looks like were going to be closer to 170 ahead going into our biggest weekend.The SuperContest Weekend, in its fifth year, features a free handicapping seminar at 6 p.m. PT Friday (the cocktail reception starts at 5 p.m.) in The Pavilion ballroom at the Westgate, a golf outing across the street on Saturday afternoon at the Las Vegas Country Club and prize drawings back in The Pavilion at 7:30 p.m. with at least six $1,500 SuperContest entries being given away as well as dozens of other prizes such as dinners, shows, sports memorabilia, etc.Fridays seminars will include two college football panels and one NFL panel with Brian Blessing acting as emcee. The 6 p.m. college football panel will include Chris Fallica of ESPNs College Gameday (and an ESPN Chalk contributor) along with Ken Thomson , Joe Lisi and moderator Steve Cofield. The 7 p.m. college football panel includes Kenny White, Dave Cokin and Lee Sterling with moderator Scott Spreitzer. The 8:05 p.m. NFL panel includes Marc Lawrence, Bernie Fratto and Rufus Peabody with moderators Gill Alexander and JT The Brick.The winners of the SuperContest Satellite Series on the Gamblino app are scheduled to be honored at 7:55 p.m. The bad news is that the Gamblino app will not be running qualifying tournaments this football season. Kornegay said he hasnt had time to figure out a qualifying tourney for next year.For the uninitiated, here are the SuperContests full rules and regulations.Sunset Station gets in seminar gameLas Vegas casinos have long used seminars to bring football bettors into their sportsbooks (recent examples being held at the Stardust, Ballys, Palace Station and Red Rock since the turn of the century), so its not surprising that another casino doesnt want to let the Westgate have all the fun.The Sunset Station will be holding a pro football seminar at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 30, in the Club Maddrid nightclub, with Blessing pulling double-duty along with race & sports book director Chuck Esposito.dddddddddddd Scheduled speakers include Bruce Marshall of the Gold Sheet, Andy Iskoe, Todd Fuhrman, Fratto and former ESPN handicapper Hammerin Hank Goldberg.More Vegas football contestsWhile the SuperContest is the biggest game in town, there are plenty of other casinos in Vegas also trying to lure customers with their handicapping contests.-- The Friday Football Showdown is back at the Golden Nugget, as previewed in this ESPN Chalk piece. The entry fee is $2,000, as it tries to challenge the SuperContest in the high-end contest space. Players not only pick NFL games against the spread but can also play NFL over/unders as well as NCAA sides and totals. The Nugget was hoping to go from 87 entries last year to around 200 this year, especially due to the fact it still pays back 100 percent of the prize pool.As of Thursday afternoon, there were only 41 entries, but theres expected to be a big increase this weekend with all the contest players in town signing up at the Westgate also wandering over to the other casinos with contests.-- After a two-year hiatus, William Hill has resumed its College Pick Em Contest for NCAA football handicappers. The entry fee is $500 with a limit of three entries per person (past versions of this contest were $250 per entry from 2005-2012 and then $100 in 2013 before it was dropped). Players make 7 plays against the spread (from a list of 25 available games) for 10 weeks starting with the games of Sept. 9-10. The prize pool is guaranteed to be at least $25,000 with 70 percent of entries going to the champion. In addition, theres a $25,000 bonus to the champion if they hit at least 70 percent winners (49 of the possible 70 points). As of Thursday afternoon, there were 36 entrants and again theres expected to be a spike this weekend. Full details are on the William Hill website.-- On the lower end, Wildfire Gaming offers the free College Football Clash with $500 in weekly cash prizes and the season-long champion winning a trip for two to the 2017 Rose Bowl (or a $1,500 cash prize in lieu of the trip). Wildfire Gaming is connected to Station Casinos and its Boarding Pass program, but this contest is just held at the smaller casinos such as Wildfire Rancho, Wildfire Sunset, Wildfire Lake Mead, Wildfire Boulder, Barleys and Wild Wild West.-- Ive long been a big fan of the football contests here in Vegas and believe theyre worth entering for those visiting town, even if for just one weekend. Many are free while others cost about what you might already be spending in office pools back home, but could have much bigger payoffs. Most of these are just picking teams to win, no points involved. The Station Casinos and Boyd Gaming have free contests where you just need to sign up for a free players card. William Hill also has a $25 buy-in Pro Pick Em contest with a $10,000 weekly prize for most winners.One contest we lost this year is Airin It Out at the Aliante in North Las Vegas, as Boyd Gamings purchase of the property is expected to be finalized during the first half of the season.
