2. The Jaguars offense was out of synch, made several fatal mistakes vs. the 49ers

Heading into the game, offensive coordinator Press Taylor told the media that one of the team's top priorities was cutting down on the turnovers. It's fair to say that they failed to accomplish the goal against the Niners. In fact, you could even make the case they took several steps back in Week 10, turning the ball over four times.

The offensive line, for one, had trouble containing the 49ers defensive front throughout most of the game. However, that doesn't justify Trevor Lawrence's poor outing. Lawrence had a handful of nice throws, a few of them under pressure. However, he also made several crassing mistakes.

Running back Tank Bigsby should've caught that pass that became an interception but Lawrence should've taken the sack instead of making a last-ditch attempt to get rid of the ball. Similarly, his other pick, the one where he targeted Christian Kirk in San Francisco territory could've been avoided. Looking for a big play, he forced a pass when he had other options available. That said, Lawrence isn't the sole reason the Jags mustered a paltry three points. There's plenty of blame to pass around.

Kirk himself lost a fumble in 49ers territory. Also, the Jags tried a flea flicker and he overthrew a pass to running back Travis Etienne. Had the throw been completed, Jacksonville would've been close to scoring range.

Walker Little struggled in his first start at left guard after missing the last three weeks with a knee injury. Maybe it's the position switch or perhaps he wasn't 100 percent healthy, regardless of the reason, he and center Luke Fortner struggled to contain the 49ers interior pass rush.

In the end, all those issues the Jaguars offense had in the first half of the season showed up Sunday. Unless they fix them as soon as possible, they'll once again struggle to score when they take on the Tennessee Titans in Week 11.
