JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Mens Nike Hypervenom Phatal FG II Purple/Fluorescent Yellow High Top Soccer Shoes . -- Houston Texans coach Bill OBrien continues to emphasize the importance of creating more turnovers.Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley is having many of the same conversations with his team.Entering the teams first matchup of the season, the Texans and Jaguars are each eager to generate more takeaways on defense to support sputtering offenses as the race for the AFC South continues Sunday at EverBank Field.The past two years, weve been pretty good, OBrien said. The first year, we were real good at it. Last year, the second half of the year, it picked up for us. ... This year, we are obviously behind the eight ball.Houston hit the midway point of the season 1 1/2 games ahead of Indianapolis and Tennessee in the division despite forcing just six turnovers (three interceptions and three fumble recoveries). Only Jacksonvilles five takeaways (three interceptions and two fumble recoveries) are fewer this season.Unsurprisingly, each team is near the bottom of the league in turnover differential. The Texans (5-3) are tied for 29th at minus-7; the Jaguars (2-6) are last at minus-12.Houstons low total is uncharacteristic for a franchise that usually feasts on turnovers. The Texans led the league with 34 two years ago and still finished a respectable 12th with 25 last season.But the most glaring issue has been their inability to make plays on the road. The Texans are 0-3 this season away from Houston and have yet to cause a turnover in games against New England, Minnesota and Denver while totaling a minus-6 turnover differential.They are hopeful a trip to Jacksonville will change that.In the past couple years that weve been here, weve been able to turn that around, said OBrien, whose team has alternated wins and losses for the past six weeks, because that stat right there points right toward the won/loss record.Jacksonville is experiencing the same problem right now.The defense was overhauled during the offseason and has performed mostly as expected aside from embarrassing blowout losses at San Diego and at Tennessee. But a stunning lack of takeaways has everyone perplexed.Jacksonville hasnt forced a turnover in 19 quarters going back to an interception of Colts quarterback Andrew Luck during a Week 4 game in London.That deficiency was made obvious during a 19-14 loss at Kansas City last week. The Jaguars had 15 more first downs and 218 more yards of offense than the Chiefs but were undone by four turnovers that led to their third straight loss.Jacksonville had a prime opportunity to snap their takeaway drought last week when a pass by Chiefs quarterback Nick Foles was overthrown and headed straight toward Jaguars cornerback Prince Amukamara. However, Amukamara collided with free safety Tashaun Gipson at the last second and the pass fell to the turf.Thats how it has seemed to go for the Jaguars all season.What you saw is probably the same feeling I had, Bradley said of the play. Weve got to have those. You have a chance to go back there and make a play and you get one thrown up to you, I dont know what to say on that one other than catch the ones thrown to you.Each team should enter Sunday relatively healthy.Jaguars defensive end Jared Odrick has missed the past two games with a foot injury, but is expected to play. Safety Tashaun Gipson (hamstring) and wide receiver Allen Hurns (concussion) are questionable.For Houston, wide receiver Jaelen Strong (ankle) and safety Lonnie Ballentine (groin/ankle/knee) are out, while nose tackle Vince Wilfork (groin), linebacker Brian Peters (quad), cornerback A.J. Bouye (ankle) and linebacker Brian Peters (quadriceps) are questionable.But the story of the game will be which team can create takeaways, and there could finally be some opportunities for each defense.Jacksonville quarterback Blakes Bortles is third in the league with 10 interceptions and Houstons Brock Osweiler has nine of his own. Behind their inconsistent play, the Jaguars are 28th in scoring (19.1 points per game). The Texans are 30th (17.1 points per game).That makes creating takeaways critically important for both teams.I feel like theyre going to come, Bouye said. We havent been getting as many as we wanted, but we just have to keep pounding and eventually theyre going to come. Nike Hypervenom Tf Orange . -- Brandon Jennings made the most of his first game with the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night. Nike Hypervenom Phantom 2 Cheap .Y. -- Injured Buffalo Sabres forward Marcus Foligno did not practice with the team Monday and head coach Ron Rolston said its unlikely hell play in Wednesdays season opener in Detroit. http:///...es-orange-black.html . LOUIS -- St. AFL boss Gillon McLachlan wants to keep shaking things up, saying hed like to host a Thursday night game in week one of the finals.The league has introduced a controversial end-of-season bye this year, with a recent poll revealing all 18 coaches are against the idea.The AFL also trialled a regular Thursday night match in rounds 14-17.McLachlan is keen to extend the experiment in September, but concedes it will depend on a number of factors.Id like to have a Thursday night final, McLachlan said on Monday.It will depend on the final configurations of the games.Having not just match-ups and venues that work, but also making sure the other match-ups mean ... we have the breaks (between week one and two of the finals) roughly matching up.North Melbourne are essentially guaranteed to finish eighth, but every other spot in the top eigght is up for grabs. Black/White TF Nike Mens Hypervenom X Finale Street Soccer Shoes. There is a possibility the finals will start with four games outside Victoria.If the ladder remains as is then Sydney, Adelaide, West Coast and Greater Western Sydney will host finals.As well as the post-season bye, it would mean a September fortnight with no football in Melbourne.McLachlan isnt worried.Were a national competition. There will be finals in Victoria unless something extraordinary happens, he said.I dont mind where the finals are as long as theyre good games.Its incredibly exciting. I have no idea whats going to happen, what the final configuration is going to be.Its impossible to work out ... its the first time its been like that in my time in football.
