With so many good games on Sunday, few people paid much attention to the ugly battle between the Jaguars and the Texans. But where the 2014 NFL draft is concerned, that was a huge game.

All season the Jaguars have been the favorites to land the first overall pick in next year’s draft, but by defeating the Texans on Sunday, the Jaguars have made the battle for the first overall pick a close one. Both the Jaguars and the Texans are 2-9 right now, as are the Falcons, and those three teams are currently in a three-way tie for the first overall pick.
