Jaguars headed to the playoffs - with a chance to do some damage

He now leads the Jaguars with 923 yards and eight touchdowns. The quarterback was almost ideal during the first two quarters, completing 17-of-25 passes for 246 passing yards and three touchdowns.

It would be the first AFC South championship for the Jaguars since the division was created in 2002 and would guarantee a postseason game in Jacksonville for the first time since the AFC Championship in January 2000. That hasn't been the case over the past three games. He has three 100-plus paser ratings in a row for the first time in his career.

In his past three games, Bortles has seven touchdown passes and no interceptions. The 14-yard completion put the Jaguars up 21-0 with 3:52 left in the game.

In the day's leading up to Sunday's game, Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone refused to talk about the playoffs. Jacksonville scored on five of its seven first half series.

The Jaguars have been the NFL's top rushing team for much of the season (149.9 yards per game entering Sunday), though they ran for only 140 yards against the Texans without (quad injury). Safety Peyton Thompson suffered a foot injured and only had a brief return before being ruled out in the fourth quarter.
