STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES – Jacksonville has won four straight in series. … Winner will end frustrating streak of futility. Jaguars have lost 11 consecutive road games. Bucs have dropped 11 straight at home, 10 under second-year coach Lovie Smith. … Jaguars QB Blake Bortles, third overall pick in 2014 draft, is 96 shy of 4,000 career passing yards. He is 0-8 in road starts. … Jacksonville RB T.J. Yeldon coming off first career 100-yard game rushing, leads NFL rookies with 259. … Jaguars WR Allen Hurns had personal-best 11 receptions for 116 yards with one touchdown against Indianapolis. … Bucs QB Jameis Winston, first pick in this year’s draft, threw for career-best 287 yards, but also threw four interceptions and lost fumble last week vs. Carolina. … Tampa Bay RB Doug Martin averaging 4.3 yards per carry after being slowed by injuries past two seasons. He finished third in NFL in total yards from scrimmage as rookie in 2012. … Bucs cut K Kyle Brindza after he missed 5 of 7 field goal attempts, as well as pair of extra points in past two weeks. He’s been replaced by former Buc Connor Barth. … Fantasy Tip: Bucs WR Vincent Jackson was targeted 15 times and had 10 catches for 147 yards and TD last week. Winston targeted WR Mike Evans (7 receptions, 101 yards) 17 times in previous week’s loss at Houston. Ideally, offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter would like his young QB to distribute ball more evenly between his top two receivers.
