Jaguars 3-0 vs. Jets at home. ... Jaguars QB Chad Henne went 3-1 vs. Jets as starter with Miami, throwing six TD passes and an interception. ... Cecil Shorts III has TD reception in four consecutive games, tying franchise record held by Reggie Williams (2007). Shorts has five TD catches of at least 20 yards, tying club record held by Jimmy Smith (2000, 2004) and Williams (2007). ... Jaguars likely will be without RB Maurice Jones-Drew (foot) for at least another week, and with Rashad Jennings (concussion) and Jalen Parmele (groin) also sidelined, special teams ace Montell Owens takes over starting job. ... Jaguars removed one section of tarps covering seats because of demand for tickets, likely because of Tebow's homecoming.
