JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jaguars got a fourth-quarter touchdown and a late defensive stand to avoid the first winless preseason in franchise history, but an even bigger victory happened earlier in the day.

Thanks to a social media campaign and some behind-the-scenes work by team digital media manager Chris Burdett, the NFL agreed to change the team's official league abbreviation from JAC to JAX.

Here are some other pieces of content from around the Web in the Jaguars' version of Reading the Coverage:

The Florida Times-Union's Ryan O'Halloran gives his take on who did and didn't play well against the Falcons and what it may mean for their chances of making the 53-man roster.

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley elected to play several starters 10-15 snaps against the Falcons. Times-Union columnist Gene Frenette writes that he should consider himself lucky that none of them was injured.

Former Jaguars offensive tackle Tony Boselli, now a member of the team's radio broadcast crew, told the Times-Union that he's glad the NFL's concussion lawsuit is over.

A bevy of things from the Jaguars' official website: A video breakdown with John Oehser, Boselli and Jeff Lageman; video of Bradley's postgame news conference; and Oehser writes that the Jaguars are pretty close to being where they want to be heading into the regular-season opener against Kansas City.

Cornerback Dwayne Gratz is among the five non-first-round rookies that have caught the eye of CBSSports.com senior NFL columnist Pete Prisco.
