The Jaguars have plenty of issues ranging from horrific coaching to low-level quarterback play, but the simplest interpretation is sometimes the correct one. The Jaguars are much better at making the losing play than the winning play. Look no further than Sen’Derrick Marks being the only human being on planet earth who didn’t know the Lions were trying to bait the Jaguars on a late 4th down, jumping offsides, and ensuring another loss.
Here’s a brief collection of some rankings around the web as the Jaguars let the weight of a lost season sink them into oblivion yet again:
"31. Jacksonville Jaguars (last week: 31)For the second straight week, Blake Bortles threw a pick off his receiver’s foot. That’s been the perfect representation of the Jaguars’ horrendous season. Nothing else needs to be said about it besides the fact that they’re bad and Gus Bradley needs to go."
"30JaguarsThey make too many mistakes to win games, which has been a season-long problem. There is a young talent base for the next coach."
"30. Jacksonville JaguarsAnyone who has ever complained about writer’s block should try taking a crack at writing the Jags blurb this week. They’ve lost five games in a row. Their last win was by one point over the Bears. They lost to a team Sunday that has a weaker running game than Jacksonville University. They lost on a punt-return touchdown and a pick-six. Again, not sure what to write here. Let’s stay on the up and up: Chris Ivory gained 114 yards from scrimmage!"
"30. Jacksonville Jaguars2016 record: 2-8 | Week 11 ranking: 30The Jaguars have lost five straight, committing 13 turnovers with only two takeaways in that time. Also, the Jaguars have led for a whopping 10 offensive plays in that stretch. Can they turn the corner in Buffalo this week?"
