JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Maurice Jones-Drew is a kid at heart and doesn't take himself too seriously. Case in point: On the day before Halloween, the running back drove his Hummer home from Jaguars headquarters wearing the giant, fuzzy red head of a popular Sesame Street character. So when a cluster of Jets fans taunted him before last Sunday's game at the Meadowlands with a chant of "Over-rated! Over-rated!" this 5-foot-7 Elmo impostor was - what else? - tickled. "It got pretty bad; they almost rattled me," Jones-Drew said.

For a few tantalizing moments, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III looked like his old self again in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars at FedEx Field. Then his star-crossed career came unraveled again. He was in the process of making one of the signature acrobatic plays that characterized his terrific 2012 season when he landed wrong on his left ankle and tumbled out of bounds in obvious agony. It appeared that he suffered a dislocation and he was carted off the field in apparent tears.

For the first time since he became one of the NFL's top receivers, there were questions surrounding Jimmy Smith this preseason. Smith, the cornerstone of the Jacksonville Jaguars' passing game the past five years, had two off-season abdominal operations that hospitalized him for a total of 35 days. He lost 20 pounds but gained it back shortly before training camp. If Smith can regain his form - the one he used to lead the league with 450 catches for 6,599 yards the past five years - the season may not be as long as many are predicting it will be for the Jaguars.

The Ravens have struck a one-year, $730,000 contract with veteran cornerback Derek Cox. The team cut undrafted rookie wide receiver Jace Davis to create a spot for Cox, who is expected to play against the New Orleans Saints  Thursday. His salary-cap figure is $570,000 under the veteran minimum salary benefit. The Ravens are thin at cornerback with injuries to top corners Jimmy Smith (chest bruise), Lardarius Webb (lower back) and Asa Jackson (sprained ankle). Cox was cut this week by the Minnesota Vikings after recording five tackles in three preseason games.

Hardy Nickerson can help the Jacksonville Jaguars with his tackling, toughness and as an answer to the Tennessee Titans. The five-time Pro Bowl middle linebacker was signed as a free agent to bring some fight to the Jaguars defense. Though Jacksonville was fourth overall in total defense last season, it was overpowered in its only three losses last season, all to the Tennessee Titans. "We think he's the ingredient that has been missing from our defense," Jaguars coach Tom Coughlin said.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- There likely will be no more football tomorrows for Dan Marino. There will be a next week, though, for the Jacksonville Jaguars. In a game filled with poignant implication and dramatic revelation, the Jaguars sent Marino out with a whimper and the Miami Dolphins home with a shocking, 62-7 loss at Alltel Stadium yesterday. Scoring one of the quickest knockouts in NFL playoff history -- and the second-biggest rout -- the Jaguars advanced to the AFC championship next Sunday against the winner of today's conference semifinal between the Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans.

A few years ago, the Ravens were counting down the seconds of a victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars when guard Edwin Mulitalo pushed Jaguars defensive tackle Gary Walker aside. Walker, no slouch at 6 feet 2 and 325 pounds, apparently didn't appreciate the gesture and rushed at the 6-3, 350-pound Mulitalo. Before Walker could reach Mulitalo, however, 6-3, 305-pound center Mike Flynn jumped in and tangled with Walker. Next preseason game Ravens@Vikings, Friday, 8 p.m., Ch. 45, 97.9 FM

A year ago, Mark Brunell appeared to be at the end of his NFL career. After coming to the Washington Redskins in 2004, Brunell had lost his starting job to Patrick Ramsey midway through that season and, from the looks of things, many of the skills that had led to three Pro Bowl invitations in nine years with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Ravens are banking on an encouraging start against the San Francisco 49ers in the preseason opener to set an aggressive tone for their red-zone offense under the direction of new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak. Last season, they were one of the worst red-zone outfits in the NFL, ranking 31st in the league in red-zone efficiency. They scored just 24 touchdowns on 52 trips inside opponents' 20-yard line. This year, though, the Ravens are displaying signs of turning around one of the most frustrating aspects of their 2013 season.

Juan Castillo endured awkward circumstances and heavy resistance to his blocking techniques and coaching methods during a rough season last year as the Ravens' run-game coordinator. Despite the challenging year, Castillo was named the Ravens' offensive line coach this season. That's why it didn't come as a surprise Thursday when Castillo repeatedly declined to elaborate on what went awry a year ago. "Well, I'd rather not talk about last year," Castillo said three times during his first interview since last year's training camp.

With training camp set to officially open next week, the Ravens are still waiting for NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to rule on the status of running back Ray Rice, but they have more pressing concerns going into the first quarter of the season. Rice faces suspension for an incident in February in which he is accused of knocking out his then-fiancee during an altercation. The prediction here is that Rice will be suspended for two to four games. The Ravens have capable replacements, but there are deeper concerns.

Whitfield signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Goins with the Miami Dolphins, Pike with the Indianapolis Colts and Barton with the Philadelphia Eagles.

An average football team had an average draft. The Ravens came away from the annual event held over the weekend with nine rookies, but only two - linebacker C.J. Mosley and safety Terrence Brooks - will have immediate impact. A third, defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan, could make this draft a little bit more special. Ideally, the Ravens wanted to draft a quality offensive tackle or guard. They did get better on defense, but the biggest weakness from a year ago is still a major problem.

By now, the Ravens' 2014 regular-season schedule has been sufficiently dissected . And yet, it surprises me a little bit that I'm still hearing from some fans that think the schedule sets up poorly for the Ravens. Look, there's no such thing as an ideal schedule. All 32 teams have challenging stretches or difficult matchups. But all-in-all, I think the Ravens got a pretty favorable draw in terms of who they play, and when and where they play them. I'm not sure it's preferable to be facing the other AFC North teams the first three weeks of the season, but I don't necessarily see it as a bad thing.

While he was once a top-10 selection in the NFL draft, Eugene Monroe might not be in Baltimore today if not for compensatory picks. Back in October, when the Ravens acquired the left tackle in a midseason trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars, they did not balk when the Jaguars insisted the Ravens surrender two draft picks. That's because while the Ravens covet draft picks, they figured they would have a couple to spare because they would be rewarded with four compensatory picks after losing several key free agents after their Super Bowl win. They also figured that if they were to lose Monroe, too, this offseason, they would likely receive a prime compensatory pick for him next offseason.
