LONDON -- A year ago, Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley noticed the tempo and energy among his players increase as their first practice at Londons Allianz Park neared an end. That effort preceded the Jaguars first win in three appearances at Wembley Stadium, a 34-31 victory over the Buffalo Bills.On Friday, no more than seven hours after the Jaguars touched down in their home away from home, Bradley observed a similar level of enthusiasm at practice. If the same outcome occurs on Sunday, when Jacksonville faces the Indianapolis Colts, it would undoubtedly do wonders for Bradley and his team.The Jaguars are 0-3 for the fifth time in franchise history and the second time in parts of four seasons under Bradley. A loss to the Colts (1-2), the last team Jacksonville beat, likely will not bode well for the coachs future with the team, especially with its bye week looming.I mean, I feel good every week, but just to come here and see it, especially this practice -- to see it start off a little bit slow and then to see how they got their legs underneath them a little bit, even in a short time, just our focus has been really, really good -- really good this week, Bradley said.For a team trying to find any semblance of consistency, Bradley and the Jaguars front office have done their part in making sure the schedule offers some familiarity. The teams travel and practice itinerary is the same as it was a year ago, and on Saturday, when the Jaguars convene for their final walkthrough, Bradley is planning on once again giving a speech about the tradition and history of Wembley Stadium.The Jaguars even asked for an intradivisional matchup, only the second in what will be the 15th game in the NFLs overseas series, in an attempt to capitalize upon their familiarity -- and the Colts lack of it as first-time visitors.I wouldnt say its routine yet, but you know, we have done it enough so players that have been here know what to expect, Bradley said. But youre always going to have new players that this is the first time. (Defensive end) Malik Jackson, this is his first time going through something like this, and I think the players, being able to talk to him and being able to explain the environment, is kind of cool.What would be even better for Jacksonville, of course, would be returning home with a victory. Teams looking to make coaching changes frequently do so as they enter the bye week, giving the staff extra time to figure out how to move on from the changes.Bradley is 12-39 since being hired as the Jaguars coach in 2013, but in what is shaping up as a muddy AFC South, its not impossible to think Jacksonville could end up salvaging the season if it were to beat Indianapolis.Guys are kind of taking it upon themselves (to fix things), quarterback Blake Bortles said. Not in the sense of pressing, `We need to win now, but just in a sense of, `What weve done hasnt worked or been successful, so lets figure out, rather than point fingers, try to come up with different ideas and solve whats going wrong. Fix it, and try to become more effective and efficient.Bortles set a franchise record with 35 touchdown passes a year ago, but he has thrown for just five touchdowns while being intercepted six times in his first three games. The offense, as a whole, has stagnated, ranking in the bottom third of all teams in several major categories.That hasnt dampened the quarterbacks enthusiasm for Sunday, which he thinks could be the impetus the Jaguars need to shake out of their struggles.Im excited, Bortles said. I think the people over here, its different. I dont know if they pay that much attention, and I think if youre a Jaguars fan in London, youve got to be pretty (darn) loyal, so I think thats kind of cool. Win or lose, you show up and support us, and were going to have fun.Game notes TE Julius Thomas (elbow) and OLB Dan Skuda (hip) are considered questionable to face the Colts, while DE Jared Odrick (triceps) and TE Ben Koyack (knee) were ruled out as they did not travel with the team. Also missing is wide receivers coach Jerry Sullivan, who has been battling an illness. ... Sundays game would have been the last in the Jaguars original four-year commitment to playing in London, but the team extended that agreement in October and will continue to play in the city through the 2020 season. ...

Our experts weigh in on four of the biggest questions in NASCAR as the Sprint Cup Series braces for Chase race No. 7 Sunday at Martinsville Speedway:Turn 1: NASCAR put new rules in for Sprint Cup veterans running in Xfinity and Trucks. No more than 10 Xfinity races and seven Truck events a season, and none during the Chase in each series. Whats your take?Ricky Craven, ESPN NASCAR analyst:?it was time for a formula like this to be created. Its an opportunity to expand the field of young drivers in the Xfinity series, and we need young talent to be identified. There is a long list of stars retiring in the next five years, and those seats need to be filled with talent.Ryan McGee, Im all for it. Ive been for it for years. I totally understand the rock and the hard place that Xfinity and Truck owners are between. Sponsors are incredibly difficult to come by in those series and those sponsors want established names behind the wheel. This allows for just enough of that but also allows those owners to bring along young racers. Plus, the Cup guys winning races within those series Chase formats unquestionably waters down the postseason. Fans have been telling me they wanted something like this for years, like all the way back to the Mark Martin-stinking-up-the-Busch-Series show days. Now they have it.John Oreovicz, Fan unrest has been building up for quite some time, so this came as no surprise. It took only a couple of races this playoff season for NASCAR to realize that Cup drivers were not only sometimes devaluing the Xfinity and Truck Chases, they also had the potential to actually affect the championships, whether through a wreck or team orders. I think its a good move to keep Cup veterans out of the lower series Chases.Bob Pockrass, Wait and see. The Kyle Busch rule -- this year it would have impacted only Kyle Busch, Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano -- will help quiet fans angry over Cup drivers taking Xfinity/Truck glory and potentially impacting their championships. But Im not convinced it helps developmental drivers because it encourages sponsors who want Cup drivers to spend less money, and that could impact opportunities down the road.Turn 2: NASCAR had hoped to announce an entitlement sponsor by the end of October. Its the end of October and no announcement. Concerned?Craven:?I am not concerned, and I truly dont understand why an announcement will be made in the middle of our playoffs. Ive been told an announcement is coming and I have no reason not to believe that. I also believe that in spite of some of the challenges our sport faces, we bring value that cant be found elsewhere.McGee: Yes. And Im far from alone. These days, when Im dropping in at the track sporadically, the single biggest conversation people want to have is about this. Theres uncertainty in the garage air. Thats not good.Oreovicz: Yes. Its getting late in the game and in the not-so-distant past, blue-chip companies would have been lined up to bid for the opportunity to take over title sponsorship of the Cup Series. With attendance and television numbers down, NASCAR needs this transition between title sponsors to have a positive impact at what is a critical point in time for auto racing as a whole.ddddddddddddPockrass: For sure. It should have announced a sponsor over the summer as corporations started making 2017 budgets. This is not a good sign. Those in the industry and the garage are concerned. While the racing has improved in 2016, the vibe on the sport has not.Turn 3: What did you think of the Joe Gibbs Racing driver strategy to run in the back at Talladega?Craven:?I thought they did exactly what they needed to do to enhance their chances at winning the title. They played within the rules. At the very least they played in the environment that creates unintended consequences. I feel for the fans of those drivers, but its hard to blame teams trying to win a title.McGee: It was the racing equivalent of an NFL team not playing its starters in the final game of the regular season. I understood it, but I hated it. Gibbs and his people are smart enough to know the big picture from the little one.?If one of those cars goes on to win the championship, the Talladega thing will become nothing more than a footnote. So taking a ton of flak this week from fans and media will be a small price if they meet their ultimate goal.Oreovicz: It cheated fans of the team and its drivers and proved that under the right circumstances, you can still points race in the elimination-style Chase. Nobody predicted 37 cars would be running at the finish, including 34 on the lead lap, and that darn near made the strategy backfire on JGR. But as Kyle Busch said, dont blame the players, blame the game.Pockrass: Hated anyone who did it -- Tony Stewart included -- but understood why they did it. The best thing is they wont do it next year for the full race because it is the second race in the round.Turn 4:?Of the final eight drivers in the Chase, which would you consider the long shot to win the title?Craven:?I would say Kurt Busch has gotten less attention than any of the other seven drivers and hes probably made the least noise in terms of performance. I think its nice that every one of the eight drivers remaining has won in 2016, which makes it especially tough to pick an underdog.McGee: At this point, were down to all big-timers, so long shot is a tough term to apply. But as Denny Hamlin fans will angrily tell you, Ive questioned that teams ability to be consistent enough to win the Cup. His three wins are great and that run of top-10s he posted leading into the Chase was one of the best of the year, but since the Chase started, hes posted three finishes of 15-plus in six races. The good news is that Martinsville is up next, wheres hes lights out. But based on his postseason thus far it might be win or bust.Oreovicz: Carl Edwards out of the Gibbs/Toyota half of the equation, Kurt Busch from the rest.Pockrass: Kurt Busch. His winning drought is longer than any other driver remaining in the Chase except Carl Edwards, and Busch has led only seven laps in the last 14 races.
