Jacksonville Jaguars studs and duds in disappointing Week 15 loss
The Jacksonville Jaguars
on the days preceding their Week 15 matchup against the Houston Texans. However, many of the issues that have surrounded them throughout the season still showed up Sunday. This was especially frustrating because the Jags were the favorite ahead of the game and had a realistic shot to win.
The Jaguars were favored to win by five points and were playing at TIAA Bank Field. Moreover, they were welcoming a Houston Texans team that hadn’t fared much better in 2021. In the end, they showed they still have a long way to go before they can compete on a weekly basis.
The Jaguars’ offense struggled to move the ball against the Texans even though the defense granted them many chances. Cornerback Shaquill Griffin told the local media not long ago that his side of the ball is only focused on what they do. Nevertheless, nobody would blame him or any of his teammates if they felt frustrated they have to carry the team on their shoulders.
Having said that, there are still three weeks left in the season the Jaguars can’t just throw in the towel. General manager Trent Baalke may or may not stay and but he’s surely evaluating the roster ahead of the offseason while players that could be on their way out need to put up some good tape. The same is true for the coaching staff, they can’t go through the motions if they want to stay or impress any future employers. For the time being, here are three studs and three duds from the Jaguars’ Week 15 loss to the Texans.
