Is the team making progress as a whole: NO

This was a terrible, gut wrenching game. The performance in a vacuum isn’t the worst in the league, but given the build-up and the hype for what should’ve been a winnable game against a less-than-stellar opponent, the team should have played better.

Offensively, defensively, and coaching-wise, the Jaguars were once again below average to poor. There were some “positives” in this game (T.J. Yeldon looked solid), but for now it’s perfectly fine to be upset with a franchise that had plenty of time to prepare for a beatable opponent and never really looked like they were in control.

The Jaguars better tighten their bootstraps and hope for a better performance against Miami at home in week 2, otherwise they might be facing an 0-4 start.
