Prowling The Web: Jaguars loss fallout


The latest Jacksonville Jaguars articles from around the web as we look at the collapse against the New York Jets and some of the positives that may have come from the game.

Jaguars, Blake Bortles self destruct in loss – ESPN

"Instead of showing the grit and resilience that coach Gus Bradley and the players talked about after beating the Bills two weeks ago, the Jaguars did just the opposite in losing 28-23 to the New York Jets. All of it happened in the final five minutes. A holding penalty on RT Jermey Parnell led to a fumble by QB Blake Bortles to wipe out a touchdown chance, and Nick Marshall fumbled a punt that the Jets turned into a touchdown and a 28-16 lead. Even after a quick touchdown, the Jaguars couldn’t recover an onside kick."

O-Zone: Not quite there – Jacksonville Jaguars team site

"The Jaguars’ 28-23 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday afternoon without question was frustrating – and it was yet another game that had fans and players alike wondering what else could possibly go wrong. Without a doubt, it hurt. And without a doubt, it felt familiar in that sense. But the answer to your question – “Why is it always something” – isn’t a satisfying one. That’s because the answer is while the Jaguars clearly have a bunch of good, young players who are ascending they don’t yet have enough mature core players to make the final few plays necessary to win games such as the one they lost Sunday."

Allen Robinson excels against Darrelle Revis – ESPN

"Allen Robinson and Darrelle Revis exchanged jerseys in the moments after the New York Jets’ 28-23 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars at MetLife Stadium on Sunday.That’s not something Revis does very often, so it was a sign of respect for the Jaguars’ second-year receiver.Robinson certainly earned it.Robinson caught six passes for 121 yards against Revis, averaging 20.2 yards per catch against a player who is regarded as the league’s best cover corner. If there was any doubt that Robinson is one of the league’s top young receivers, what he did against Revis should wipe it out."
