The Jacksonville Jaguars simply aren’t good enough, even when some things go right they manage to find ways to lose.
Two interceptions were critical in forcing the Houston Texans to bench Brock Osweiler in their Week 15 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Those two interceptions were the first time the Jags had picked off any quarterback since Week 4 of 2016.
The Jags also had another big play in the form of a touchdown kick return from Marqise Lee. It was the first kickoff return for a touchdown by the Jaguars since Maurice Jones-Drew returned one in 2007.
The Jags were up by nine heading into the fourth quarter. All they needed to do was hold out for the win and (hopefully) tack on a few extra points. Instead, the offense stalled and the team wasn’t able to do much of anything. Even getting the ball back with a minute left to go wasn’t good enough, but provided time for Bortles to throw his 16th interception of the season.

21-20 is yet another close game for the Jaguars to lose. It continues the trend of the Jags inching closer and closer but still falling short.
There isn’t much to play for, even with two more division games on the Jags schedule for 2016. The team is out of the hunt and it looks like the Texans or Titans are in position to win it all. The Jags can throw a wrench in the works by beating either the Colts or the Titans but it isn’t going to make Jags fans feel much better about this season.
2-12 is where the Jags sit now. The last time a Jags head coach won just two games, he was fired. That coach was Mike Mularkey who is currently leading the Titans on a renaissance season.
There are a lot of negatives surrounding the Jags right now. It’s tough to remain positive when looking at this team.
