It might be good news for the Jaguars that for the second week in a row they are playing a three-win AFC team that is coming off a lopsided victory and is favored by about five points. Last week, they faced the 3-2 Cleveland Browns, who had beaten the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-10 the previous week and were favored by 5 1/2.

Patrick Chung moves up in importance

FOXBORO — Patrick Chung likes to be in the middle of the action. So far this season, the Patriots safety’s wish has been granted.If nothing else, the Pats have heaped plenty of responsibility on Chung, and, for the most part, he’s held up his end of the bargain. In a variety of roles, Chung has been ever-present on the defense.Last Thursday night’s win against the New York Jets stands as just one example of just how critical a role Chung plays.
