RTC: Players critical after victory

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jaguars players got game balls when they beat Tennessee and a day off when they beat Houston, but after Sunday's victory over Cleveland, they got upset at the mistakes they made.

Winning really does change everything.

"We understand that we have a long way still to go," tight end Marcedes Lewis told the Florida Times-Union's Ryan O'Halloran.

The Jaguars (3-9) got an 80-yard, game-winning drive that was capped by Chad Henne's 20-yard touchdown pass to Cecil Shorts, but that doesn't override the fact that they got out-gained 439-314, managed just 5 yards in the third quarter and gave up 261 yards receiving to Josh Gordon. So while the players are enjoying their third victory in four games since the bye, they're realistic, too.
