Will Ronald Jones start Sunday?

Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians declared Ronald Jones the starting running back during his Tuesday news conference. In fact, the media was so surprised at Arians’ declaration, they asked him to confirm he meant Jones would start against the Falcons. Arians responded, “Yes.” So will he or won’t he?

Jaguars close in on a rare 20-game losing streak

Last year, Jacksonville started 1-0. This year, they started 0-1. In between, they’ve lost every game.
