The Jacksonville Jaguars took a step forward two weeks ago when they played the Broncos in Denver, but they took two steps back last week at home versus the San Diego Chargers. Now they are in London preparing to take on probably the most physical team in the league in the San Francisco 49ers. The Jaguars look completely outmatched, but they will try to rally around head coach Gus Bradley after his father passed away this week.
The Jaguars performance last week only solidified their bottom-dwelling status.
32. The Jaguars have yet to score a touchdown at home this season. The Jags are “home” this week (in London) against the 49ers, but don’t return to Jacksonville until Nov. 17.
32. After improving the past two weeks, they seemed to regress against the Chargers. Now comes a long trip to London.
32. Every Jaguars loss has been decided by at least double digits, so there have been plenty of bad plays over the weeks. That said, the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty by Sen’Derrick Marks that gave the Chargers an automatic first down in the first half of a still-close game says it all: It eliminated what would have been a third-and-33 for San Diego.
31. At this point, 0-16 seems inevitable. The players may have been feeling the same way. Gus Bradley called out his team publicly on Monday, expressing his “disappointment” in the lack of effort.
Fansided: 31. Jacksonville Jaguars
