For at least one week, there was a new NFL team in Florida.

The Jaguars tweaked the name of their Twitter account to #Sacksonville following Sunday’s 29-7 season-opening upset of the Texans. The switch came after Jacksonville recorded a franchise-record 10 sacks, triggering Houston halftime quarterbacking and offensive line changes that still could not stop the onslaught.
Equally as impressive was a complementary performance by a Jaguars offense coming off a dreadful preseason. While his passing numbers weren’t impressive (11 of 21 for 125 yards with one touchdown), Blake Bortles did his part by not committing a turnover. The best thing Bortles did was hand off to Leonard Fournette. The No. 4 overall pick in this year’s draft rushed for 100 yards on 26 carries in his NFL debut behind an offensive line that kept Houston’s vaunted defense in check.
And among everybody who had played out of their minds in the opener, from Alex Smith to Kareem Hunt to Justin Houston, Berry had still stood out as the physical and emotional fulcrum.
Kids Emmanuel Lamur Jersey No one needed to hear Andy Reid say that Berry couldn’t be replaced to believe it. Reid couldn’t even sugarcoat it. It’s hard to push the next man up theory for players like Berry. It will be hard for the Chiefs to play the same way with someone else at his position. There’s only so much coaching ’em up, only so much shuffling of bodies and tweaking of game plans that can keep the Chiefs from being weaker at a position which had been an uncommon strength.
