The Jacksonville Jaguars did what they do best last weekend by losing a winnable game to the Detroit Lions – is this going to push them even farther down power rankings?
Another week, another loss. The story changes slight every game for the Jacksonville Jaguars, but the outcome is always the same – disappointment. With a rare 4th quarter lead, the Jaguars squandered multiple opportunities and let the Detroit Lions waltz to victory.
The Jaguars have plenty of issues ranging from horrific coaching to low-level quarterback play, but the simplest interpretation is sometimes the correct one. The Jaguars are much better at making the losing play than the winning play. Look no further than Sen’Derrick Marks being the only human being on planet earth who didn’t know the Lions were trying to bait the Jaguars on a late 4th down, jumping offsides, and ensuring another loss.
Here’s a brief collection of some rankings around the web as the Jaguars let the weight of a lost season sink them into oblivion yet again:
For the second straight week, Blake Bortles threw a pick off his receiver’s foot. That’s been the perfect representation of the Jaguars’ horrendous season. Nothing else needs to be said about it besides the fact that they’re bad and Gus Bradley needs to go.
The Jaguars have lost five straight, committing 13 turnovers with only two takeaways in that time. Also, the Jaguars have led for a whopping 10 offensive plays in that stretch. Can they turn the corner in Buffalo this week?
