The Jacksonville Jaguars failed to win in front of their home crowd again on Sunday, falling to the Houston Texans 24-21. Despite the close score, Houston was in control of this game for the entirety of the contest. Brock Osweiler and Texans offense was awful, but the Jaguars have patented some method of finding different and comical ways to lose games.
Here are some other quick notes from the Jaguars 7th loss of the season:
- Blake Bortles still looks terrible but the team can’t really do anything else but continue playing him. It’s a lost season so nothing else matters besides giving Bortles the chance to work through his struggles. Some people have suggested sitting him down so he can work through his issues, but I don’t understand how he’s going to do that any other time besides the offseason. Focusing more on the game, Bortles started the day off with a horrendous interception that was returned for a touchdown. It was a classic Bortles mistake, with the DB baiting Bortles to throw it late to the sideline. He then missed a wide open Allen Hurns for a 40+yard touchdown in the second half. He also continues to throw wobbly ducks into the middle of the field that leave you scratching your head.
- Some people try to spin the Jacksonville defense as a positive, but they failed yet again to force a turnover. They also let Brock Osweiler throw two touchdowns. Yes they limited the Texans yardage production, but it’s not enough.
- I don’t really know what else to discuss from this game. We saw exactly the same problems that have plagued the team over the first 8 games (and quite frankly for the last 3 years). When the team keeps making the same silly mistakes, leaving plays on the field, and committing stupid penalties… it falls on the coaching staff. Dante Fowler Jr. getting called for another personal foul penalty at a key moment is a weekly event at this point and it’s inexcusable. Head coach Gus Bradley looks helpless and hapless on the sideline at this point, and it almost seems cruel for owner Shad Khan to keep him employed at this point. The Jaguars are not a good football team right now. You can’t say that they would be a good team with a different head coach, but it’t hard to imagine that things would be worse.
