Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan waited until the final few minutes to start celebrating.

Khan would have been drinking by halftime.,Had he uncorked the champagne when the game was essentially over

Blake Bortles threw three touchdowns passes ,Authentic Adam Vinatieri Jersey, and the Jaguars clinched a playoff spot with a 45-7 drubbing of AFC South rival Houston on Sunday. Jacksonville's seventh victory in its last eight games locked up the franchise's first postseason berth since 2007.,<womens Adam Vinatieri Jersey, including two to seldom-used backup Jaydon Mickens

" Khan said .Authentic Darius Butler Jersey"It's a story of perseverance

the Jaguars (10-4) are now one of the league's top turnarounds.Authentic Jacoby Brissett Jersey>,Once the NFL's poster child for futility and a punchline for potential relocation

The injury-riddled Texans (4-10) have dropped four in a row and seven of eight.

"They can smell the playoffs,Authentic Calais Campbell Jerseywhat you did is not good."Houston receiver DeAndre Hopkins said. "You can tell that by the way they played. That's what you play for: playoff football. You play this game to win the ultimate goal. When you don't get there

Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee.,Bortles finished with a season-high 326 yards and the best QB rating (143.8) of his career. He did it without receivers Allen Robinson,Authentic Allen Hurns Jersey"

With Robinson (knee) on injured reserve,<womens Telvin Smith JerseyMickens and rookie Keelan Cole stepped up. Mickens caught four passes for 61 yards and two scores . Cole had seven receptions for a career-high 186 yards and a TD., Hurns (ankle) inactive and Lee (ankle) in the locker room

not knowing how long he would remain in town.,Mickens disclosed earlier this week that he slept in his car outside the facility at night to save money

he and teammates will be getting playoff checks.,Now

"It's kind of cool that we solidified our spot, but we're not done yet."," Jaguars defensive tackle Malik Jackson said. "Now we can get over the giddiness of it. ... It's cool to be where we are

which was an NFL-worst 22-74 over the previous six years and widely considered more of a laughingstock than a postseason contender.,That's a huge change for Jacksonville

following a close loss at Houston. Khan hired Tom Coughlin to oversee football decisions and made interim Doug Marrone the head coach. Coughlin and Marrone added several key players and changed the culture with a grueling offseason and training camp.,Khan fired coach Gus Bradley one year ago Sundaywomens Anthony Castonzo Jersey,

but have hit their stride down the stretch.,The Jags got off to an up-and-down start,womens Calais Campbell Jersey,'

with seven touchdown passes and no turnovers the last three games[url=-]Authentic Anthony Castonzo Jersey[/url],Bortles has been better than expected of late

"Blake's killing it, and I'm glad he's proving to himself that he can do it. He chose one hell of a year to pick it up.",>womens Darius Butler Jersey," Jackson said. "I'm just glad he's been able to turn it around. I'm glad he's doing what we knew he could do

the Jaguars didn't even need running back Leonard Fournette. The rookie was inactive because of a sore right quadriceps muscle.,womens Jacoby Brissett Jersey,With Bortles picking apart Houston's secondary

Jacksonville's defense womens Allen Hurns Jersey, was dominant again. The unit held Houston to 186 yards.,' which has been the glue all season

their largest halftime lead in team history.,The Jags led 31-0 at the break,Authentic Telvin Smith Jersey

" defensive tackle Calais Campbell said.womens Paul Posluszny Jersey,"It was very satisfying

The Texans looked lost in every aspect. They did little on offense outside Hopkins' 25-yard TD catch against Jalen Ramsey and did even less to slow down Jacksonville. Authentic Paul Posluszny Jersey

T.J. Yates, making his first start since 2015, with the TD and an interception., was mostly ineffective in place of Tom Savage (concussion). Yates completed 12 of 31 passes for 128 yards

and you never want to get beat like that," said linebacker/defensive end Jadeveon Clowney,"It's embarrassing, who also called Bortles "trash" in the locker room. "It's embarrassing for the whole organization."
