JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jaguars would have the No. 1 pick in the 2014 draft if the season ended today -- but just barely.

Florida Times-Union columnist Gene Frenette writes that while the Jaguars (2-9) are tied with Houston and Atlanta for the NFL's worst record, they currently sit in last place because the combined won-loss record of their opponents is slightly lower than Houston's and Atlanta's opponents. The Jaguars' opponents are 91-84 (.520 winning percentage). Houston's opponents are 96-79 (.548) and Atlanta's opponents are 98-75-1 (.566).

Those marks include the remaining opponents as well.

Here are some additional pieces of Jaguars content from around the web in our daily Reading the Coverage feature:

Ryan O'Halloran breaks down five key plays from the victory over Houston in his After Further Review feature, including Ryan Davis' interception. He also reviews how well the Jaguars accomplished the four keys to the game.

The T-U's Hays Carlyon writes that Bradley was impressed with Davis' effort.

Here is Frenette's report card from the Houston victory. He doled out two A's.

Coach Gus Bradley says the Jaguars' second victory is further validation of the approach he and GM Dave Caldwell have taken this year, O'Halloran writes.

Here is a roundup of items from this blog: the Blaine Gabbert era isn't officially over, but it's pretty darn close; a breakdown of offensive and defensive snaps against the Texans; running back Justin Forsett is done for the year after fracturing his foot; ESPN fantasy football writer Eric Karabell discusses whether running back Maurice Jones-Drew is on the rise.
