"You want to crawl under a rock for a little while Sunday night," McCown said. "The great thing about having kids is they don't care how many picks you throw. I walk in the house and they were glad I was home. Today's a new day. I woke up this morning and the sun was there. It was raining a little bit, but the sun came up. It's another day to prepare and get better. It only counts for one loss. As bad as it feels, it only counts as one loss."  The Times-Union

Players emphasize Jets game counts as only one loss.  jaguars.com

Around the NFL

"If seeing is believing, then take a look at this week's NFL statistics. Scroll to team defense and tell me who has the highest-ranked unit. Here's a hint: It's the same team that has the league's best pass defense and the same team that allowed the fewest points.  Yep, it's the Houston Texans, and you gotta believe."  CBSSports.com

"Circumstances have changed dramatically for the Indianapolis Colts, who find themselves looking up at most of the NFL."  Indianapolis Star

"What would Cam Newton have done with a normal off-season? We won't know until next year, but for now, Newton, the rookie quarterback from Auburn who was supposed to need time to transition from the spread offense he ran in college to a more N.F.L.-friendly pocket game, has stunned the league with a record-setting first two weeks."  The New York Times

"Really, now, who saw this coming? A week earlier, the Titans staggered through the first 3½ quarters and were fortunate to still be around at the end of a 16-14 loss at Jacksonville."  The Tennessean

Ben Tate might get the starting nod on Sunday for the Texans.  Houston Chronicle

Not all hope lost for the NFL's winless: Of the 177 teams that have started 0-2 since 1990, 22 have made the playoffs (12.4 percent).

The last word

"We talk a lot about not being too high or too low, and no problem not being too high today; it's about not being too low.  I think we've got to be consistent in our approach and that's going to be important for us."
