The Jacksonville Jaguars had a chance to end the season on a positive note.
Although they were close at times, the Jacksonville Jaguars couldn’t win many games in 2020 and ended the season with a 1-15 record. While they lost their previous three games by a combined score of 112-41, there was hope they could earn their second victory of the year and sweep the Indianapolis Colts in the season finale.
Heading into the game, ‘Indy’ was vying for a playoff spot and the Jaguars could’ve done the closest thing to qualifying for the postseason, spoiling other team’s chances of making it. However, the Colts’ running game was too much for Jacksonville’s defense and they racked up 273 yards on the ground and averaged 7.3 yards per carry.
Moreover, the Jaguars’ offensive line was a liability and allowed six sacks. Regardless of whom their quarterback is next season, the team’s brass will have to find a way to fix their pass protection woes. There’s no point in drafting a young quarterback if they aren’t going to be able to keep him upright.
On the bright side, quarterback Mike Glennon had an interception-free game and completed two touchdown passes to wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. With better quarterback play next season, the Colorado standout’s production could see a spike next season. In fact, Glennon said after the game the future is bright for ‘Viska’ and the team’s young wide receiver corps.
Jacksonville Jaguars fans are ready to move on to the offseason.
While it’s never pleasant to see the ‘Jags’ drop a game, the fact they hold the first overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft makes their most recent loss more bearable.
This gentleman acknowledges the are some building blocks in place and young enticing talent on the roster.
There are mixed feelings about head coach Doug Marrone’s uncertain future.
Many fans are already in draft mode.
Losing is never nice, but the Jaguars will enter the offseason with many draft selections at their disposal and plenty of cap space. If the organization makes the right moves, this will be the last losing season they will have to endure for a while.
