The Jacksonville Jaguars beat the Carolina Panthers 26-0 in Week 17, putting an end to a four-game losing streak. While Jags players are ecstatic and looking to finish the season on a high note, Panthers owner David Tepper wasn't very pleased watching his team lose in such an embarrassing fashion.

During the game, Tepper was filmed throwing a drink in disgust. Shout out to Christy Honsberg on Instagram for recording the event, and @Kahuna_Med for posting the video on Twitter.

While that was an overreaction, most Panthers fans might've also been displeased with the team's performance Sunday. Then again, if Tepper wants to get mad, he should look in the mirror. If anything, Carolina has been bad because he's been a bad owner since buying the franchise in 2018.

Over the last five years, the team has lacked direction and experienced lots of turnover in the coaching ranks. Since 2018, they've employed three head coaches and also had three interim head coaches. Just this year, Tepper hired Frank Reich thinking he was the right man to lead the team. Unfortunately, Reich didn't even last a season at the helm, putting in question Tepper's acumen to run a team.

Throughout his tenure in Carolina, Tepper has earned a reputation as a meddling owner, often getting involved in decisions that are solely the responsibility of the head coach. Following the loss to the Jaguars, the Panthers are 2-14, and he deserves lots of the blame for the subpar record.

The Jaguars showed up vs. the Panthers in Week 17

While David Tepper is throwing a temper tantrum, the Jaguars are celebrating the fact that they've had winning seasons in consecutive years. Head coach Doug Pederson credits the players for bouncing back after an underwhelming four-game stretch and playing sound football in all three phases of the game.

C.J. Beathard, who got the start at quarterback, made enough plays to get the win, going 17-of-24 for 178 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions. Running back Travis Etienne, for his part, had one of his best games of the season, toting the rock 16 times for 102 yards with two rushing touchdowns. This was just the second time he crossed the 100-yard mark in a game this year.

The defense was equally productive, shutting out the Panthers offense, and sacking Bryce Young six times. Outside linebacker Josh Allen registered three sacks and broke Calais Campbell's franchise record of 14.5 sacks he set in 2017. Sophomore edge rusher Travon Walker was equally productive recording two sacks, giving him nine for the year.

Before the game, tight end Evan Engram, who had six sacks for 60 yards, said that all the Jaguars needed was one win and he was right. Regardless of the team or their record, Jacksonville was in need of a win. Beating the Panthers should help them re-focus the rest of the game.

Next on the Jags' schedule are the Panthers. While they already tied their win totals from last year, it's hard to see Jacksonville stepping off the gas pedal, especially with the playoffs on the line.
