JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles expects to see a noticeable difference when he plays at Kansas City on Sunday.Bortles spent two days working with a mechanics coach this week, focusing on better footwork that he hopes will shorten his delivery and tighten his throwing motion. Bortles said Friday that two days isnt going to fix anything, but he added that the refresher course should pay dividends right away.I would hope so, he said. I guess well find out on Sunday. ... I feel good. I think that Sunday will be a good test. Im excited for it.Not only did Bortles spend time tweaking his mechanics, he also had to get acclimated to new offensive coordinator Nate Hackett. The Jaguars fired Greg Olson last week, two days after an embarrassing loss at Tennessee , and promoted Hackett to fill the void.The Jaguars (2-5) have seemingly responded well to the change, with some players expressing relief about the transition.It was good, Bortles said. I thought guys were fired up. I think Nathaniels done a really good job and kind of being a spark plug, getting the offense going. Hes obviously done a really good job with the plan, putting it together, and then getting everybody to buy into it and making sure everybody has an understanding of what were doing and why were doing it.Under Hackett, Jacksonville expects to be more committed to running the ball. That, in turn, could help Bortles, especially if his mechanics improve and allow him to be more accurate.Bortles old habits -- the ones that plagued him as a rookie in 2014 -- resurfaced during training camp, but the third-year pro initially thought he could work through them. He even spent a half hour a day practicing his form in front of a mirror.When it became clear he wasnt making progress, Bortles decided to get help. So he called Adam Dedeaux, an instructor at 3DQB in Los Angeles. Dedeaux and partner Tom House have helped Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Tim Tebow and other NFL quarterbacks in recent years. Bortles has spent time with them, too, but he normally does it during the offseason.It was big, Bortles said. You talk about feel and trying to create muscle memory and obviously its hard to do that stuff in the middle of the season when youre trying to game plan and get ready for a game on Sunday. But it was good. I think he did a good job. Hes a huge help so it was good to have him here.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Wholesale Basketball Shoes China . -- Charline Labonte couldnt have asked for a better homecoming.

Rob Nelson of ESPN Stats & Information revisits the worst bad beats from the weekends gambling action.Note: Closing lines are courtesy of Westgate Les Vegas SuperBook and pick percentages are via Wunderdog Sports.FridayNorthwestern State Demons at Baylor BearsClosing line: Baylor -50.5Baylor was the only ranked team favored by 50 points or more this weekend, and 71 percent of the bets were on the Bears to cover.Baylor scored on each of its first nine possessions and led 55-0 early in the third quarter. At that point, Northwestern State not only couldnt stop the Bears, but had been unable to muster any sort of offense. With 11 minutes and 13 seconds left in the third quarter, the Demons had twice as many offensive drives that ended with negative yardage (4) than they had first downs (2).But Northwestern State was able to find the end zone late in third quarter when Brooks Haack punched it in from 3 yards out. Combine that score with Baylor being held scoreless in the final 26 minutes, and the underdog ended up covering. The Bears finished the second half with their fewest yards (105) and first downs (5) after halftime in a game since 2010.Final score:?Baylor 55, Northwestern State 7 (Northwestern State covers)SaturdayGeorgia Bulldogs vs North Carolina Tar HeelsClosing line: Georgia -3.5SEC favorites went 3-7 against the spread this weekend, but it could have been worse if it werent for Georgias late rally.The Bulldogs -- favored by more than a field goal -- trailed by 10 with just over 16 minutes to play. They closed the third quarter with an Isaiah McKenzie 17-yard touchdown catch and added a safety two plays later. Georgia took a two-point lead on William Hams 29-yard field goal with 5:27 left in the fourth, but the 41 percent of bettors who took North Carolina were still covering. Less than two minutes later, Nick Chubb broke the game open with a 55-yard touchdown run that put the Bulldogs up by nine and, unfortunately for Tar Heel backers, that margin would hold. Georgia ended up scoring the final 19 poiints of the game.ddddddddddddinal score:?Georgia 33, North Carolina 24 (Georgia covers)Fresno State Bulldogs at Nebraska CornhuskersClosing line:?Nebraska -29.5In a day full of upsets, Fresno State tried to pull a shocker of its own. Two Power 5 teams lost as four-touchdown favorites on Saturday (Mississippi State and Washington State), but Nebraska -- favored by 29.5 -- would have been the largest favorite to go down.The Cornhuskers allowed the Bulldogs to score the final 10 points of the first half, and took a slim 14-10 lead into halftime. The 43 percent who took Fresno State to cover the big spread had to be feeling pretty good, but what followed was a 30 minutes to forget for those folks. Nebraska outscored the Bulldogs 29-0 in the second half, including a 22-0 edge in the fourth quarter.The 29-point advantage for the Cornhuskers after halftime marked their best second-half scoring differential in a game since September 2007.Final score: Nebraska 43, Fresno State 10 (Nebraska covers)Northern Arizona Lumberjacks at Arizona State Sun DevilsClosing line:?Arizona State -27This marked the last game to kick off Saturday night -- aka, the last chance for bettors to improve/salvage their day.

But when Northern Arizonas Elijah Marks?scored on an?87-yard touchdown catch to make it 26-13 with 10:39 left, the Lumberjacks looked prime to cover. The Sun Devils however, would score the final 18 points of the game, including a spread-covering 12-yard touchdown run by Nick Ralston with 2:46 left.Arizona States 24 fourth-quarter points were tied for its most in a game in 15 seasons.Final score:?Arizona State 44, Northern Arizona 13 (Arizona State covers) ' ' '
