JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The Jacksonville Jaguars held on to beat the Houston Texans 27-20 on Thursday night. Houston extended its franchise-record losing streak to 11 games, a stunning stretch of futility that could lead the franchise to fire coach Gary Kubiak.
IRVING, Texas (AP) - Dallas owner Jerry Jones says he sees a healthy and productive Tony Romo taking the Cowboys into December in playoff contention - same as the past two years.

TORONTO (AP) -The Toronto Maple Leafs ended a five-game skid with a 3-2 victory over the Dallas Stars on Thursday. The Maple Leafs won for the first time since Nov. 23 despite being outshot for the 10th consecutive game, this time 50-24.
WACO, Texas (AP) - When No. 9 Baylor and No. 23 Texas kick off their regular season finale, they could be playing a de facto Big 12 championship game with a Fiesta Bowl trip on the line. The winner Saturday is guaranteed at least a share of the Big 12 title. The last game ever at Baylor's Floyd Casey Stadium becomes even bigger if sixth-ranked Oklahoma State loses against No. 18 Oklahoma.
