Jaguars Drop Fifth Consecutive Game

The Jacksonville Jaguars were leading at the end of the third quarter but the Detroit Lions rallied back to beat the Jags 26-19. This is now the fifth loss in a row for Jacksonville and pushes their record to 2-8 on the year.

The Lions were able to defeat the Jags without quarterback Matthew Stafford throwing for any touchdowns. The Lions scored their touchdowns by a punt return, interception return, and a one-yard run. Despite quarterback Blake Bortles throwing for two touchdowns and 202 yards, the Jags were unable to grab a victory. With Bortles’ two touchdowns came two interceptions—one of them returned to the house for Bortles’ tenth career pick-six. Bottles has ten career wins in total since he’s entered the NFL in 2014.

Bortles has thrown at least one pick in seven of the eight games the Jaguars have lost and has only had two games where he didn’t turn the ball over. Bortles’ second interception came at the end of the game and turned the ball over from a receivers foot hitting the ball in the air.

Bortles speaks for the team in the amount of work they put in. Despite all their hard work, the Jags just keep losing games.

Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley mentions how the team will regroup after this loss and what’s next fro them. It’s hard to really expect much after what Bradley says because in his tenure as Jags head coach he is 14-44.

Up Next

The Jaguars will regroup and then travel to Buffalo next week to face the Bills and try to not make it their sixth consecutive loss.
