The Jacksonville Jaguars haven't been much to look at on the football field of late, but, thanks to a Nike uniform makeover, at least they'll stand out. The Jaguars' new duds feature a sharp, angular font on jet-black jerseys with teal accents and gold trim, with a new trait unlike any other NFL team: a two-tone helmet that fades from black to gold. Jacksonville also has white- and teal-based versions of the uniform with alternating colors. In a nod to the city of Jacksonville's multiple military bases, the Jaguars' new uniforms also have a military-style patch over the heart.

Quarterback Trent Edwards was claimed Tuesday by the Jacksonville Jaguars off waivers, according to his agent. The Buffalo Bills waived Edwards on Monday after he lost his starting job to Ryan Fitzpatrick. Edwards, 26, began the season as the Bills quarterback but was benched after throwing for only 241 yards and one touchdown in his first two games, both losses. A former third-round pick from Stanford, Edwards is likely to back up Jaguars starter David Garrard. In his four seasons with Buffalo, Edwards threw for 25 touchdowns and 27 interceptions with a passer rating of 76.8.

Chad Henne never quite caught on in Miami. Will he be able to do so in Jacksonville? Will he even get the chance? Henne threw for 354 yards and a career-high four touchdowns after coming in for Jaguars starting quarterback Blaine Gabbert, who bruised his right elbow Sunday early in the Jaguars' 43-37 overtime loss to the Houston Texans. That's the 9-1 Houston Texans, who came into the game 16-point favorites over the 1-9 Jaguars -- the same Jacksonville team that hasn't managed to score more than 23 points in a game all season.

There's no doubt about it, Steve Beuerlein has played for the best and the biggest. There was Al Davis, who treated Beuerlein only slightly better than he treated the city of Irwindale. There was Jimmy Johnson, who often praised Beuerlein, but played him only when Troy Aikman was unavailable. There was Buddy Ryan, who treated Beuerlein like . . . well, like Buddy Ryan treats all quarterbacks.
