by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (12/6/13) The Jaguars defense gave up a ton yards to the Texans in Week 14, but did a decent job holding them in check overall in a 27-20 win.
The Texans' offense racked up 406 yards, 323 of which came through the air. The Jaguars did a good job bending, however, and they broke just twice for touchdowns. Jacksonville racked up three sacks and picked off each of the Texans' quarterbacks once, giving the unit two total in the game.
The Jaguars DST unit had better success against Houston the last time these two teams played, but this defense has still given up at least 20 points in 11 of 13 games this season. They face the Bills in Week 15, who rank just 20th in the league in points scored.

Gus Bradley's arrival in Jacksonville signals a change in coaching philosophies as the former Seahawks defensive boss will bring his attacking ways to Northeast Florida. Unfortunately, the talent he's inheriting in Jacksonville is among the league's worst. Last year the Jaguars had 20 sacks, 12 interceptions and zero touchdowns while ranking 30th against the run and 22nd against the pass while allowing 27.8 points per game. Though the Jaguars added talent for the secondary through the draft, the roster is little changed from last season. Bradley has his work cut out for him and it will probably take a year or two for this defense to improve. Don't make the Jaguars DST part of your Fantasy team. (Updated 5/10/13)
