In the NFL, it was a lowly Thursday night game between the Houston Texans and the Jacksonville Jaguars.  The Texans put up a fight against the Patriots last week, and the Jags were on a 2-game win streak headed into the game.  The Jags got out to a big lead early, and even caused the Texans to pull their starting quarterback Case Keenum, who hasn’t won a game yet for the Texans.  Matt Schaub replaced him, but the Jags are playing well right now and they came away with the home victory.  That’s 3 in a row for the Jags, and now the Texans (based on their losing season) are in position to get the #1 pick.  That will lead to countless “Should they draft Texas hero Johnny Manziel?” articles over the next 6 months.  Jacksonville 27, Houston 20.

The big news out of the day came from the college football world and the decision in Tallahassee as to the verdict on the charge against Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston.  Winston was accused of sexual assault by a woman a year ago.  If found guilty, he would not have played in the National Title Game.  But Winston’s lawyer has said all along that the sex was consensual.  It was up to the judge to decide, and the official verdict was that Winston was absolved of all charges. There will likely be many questions and commentary on this decision over the next few weeks.


And in the NBA, the New York Knicks haven’t had such a great beginning of the season.  Then again, neither have the Brooklyn Nets, who were supposed to be a juggernaut with the addition of Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce.  Thursday night, they would square off in a rivalry game at the Barclays Center in a battle to see who could get to 5 wins first.  Fortunately, Knicks fans have a little to celebrate as Carmelo Anthony had a good game to snap a 9-game losing streak and crush the Nets.  NY Knicks 113, Brooklyn 83.
