Bortles has been called a lot worse throughout the years, which is exactly why Clowney's statements didn't phase the veteran quarterback, who is focused on winning the division this week.

Jacksonville fan Bonnie Upright claimed to ESPN that she came up with the idea.

That has seen long-suffering Jaguars fans embark on a prank, ordering rubbish bins online and sending them directly to Clowney care of the Texans' stadium.

"It's Christmas. It's the season of giving". "Let's have a little fun with". Didn't say anything hateful or mean.


The Jaguars will now look to secure the AFC South title when they play against the 49ers this weekend, while the Texans are just playing for pride at this point in the season, as they'll be hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers on Christmas Day.

Asked about some of the harsh judgment directed toward him in the past, Bortles had a very diplomatic response Wednesday.

That would be Blake Bortles of the Jacksonville Jaguars, who this month has completed 71 percent of his passes, is tied for the lead in touchdown passes and has the highest passer rating of any quarterback. Bortles completed 21 of 29 passes for 326 yards and three touchdowns in that game, which brought his December numbers in three games to 903 yards, seven touchdowns and no interceptions.

The Jaguars have gone 3-0 this month - admittedly against a slate of injury-ravaged defences - and are 10-4 overall.
