Jags Fall To 0-2 After Blow Out Loss At San Diego

The Jacksonville Jaguars are now 0-2 on the season after losing to the San Diego Chargers Sunday 38-14 in Qualcomm Stadium. But this game was not just a loss, it was a complete meltdown, leaving the Jaguars to think of a new game plan going into Week Three of the NFL season. The biggest problems for the Jaguars on the day were the three turnovers and 12 penalties committed by the end of the game. Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley credits the Chargers for a great performance.

Jacksonville’s defense started the game on a sour note as they gave up a touchdown on the Chargers’ opening drive. At the start of the second quarter they were already down 14-0, having trouble containing Charger quarterback Phillip Rivers. Rivers finished the game 17 for 24 for 220 yards and four touchdowns. Another offensive star for San Diego was running back Melvin Gordon, who recorded the first 100 yard game of his young career.

On the other hand, Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles had nowhere near the success Rivers had at the quarterback position. He threw two interceptions and fumbled once in the loss.   He did have two touchdown passes but they came when the game was well out of hand.  Bortles gives his reaction after the game to the team’s 0-2 start on the season.

Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley in now 12 and 37 as he coaches his fourth season with the team. Jacksonville will look to bounce back when they host the Baltimore Ravens this Sunday. The Ravens have won their first two games of the season but for the Jags, it could be a huge game despite it being only the third game of the year.
