Jaguars fall to 1-4 at bye week
JACKSONVILLE, Fla.--It's not a pretty story to tell after five weeks in the NFL season for the Jags. The Jacksonville Jaguars were outscored 38-0 in the second half of the 41-3 loss to the Chicago Bears that drops them to 1-4 on the season.
This game was tied 3-3 with around six minutes to play in the third quarter before the bottom fell out. Blaine Gabbert didn't throw an interception in the first three games and fans were complaining that the Jags needed to throw the ball down the field and open up the offense. Gabbert now has three in the last two games including a pair of interceptions returned for touchdowns. Give the Bears credit, they pounded Tony Romo and Dallas last week and took a pair back for scores and they did it twice to Gabbert.
Mike Mularkey said he didn't know what to say to the team after they let a 3-3 game get out of hand but the interceptions don't help, "the two pick sixes that uh...you are not going to win a lot of games throwing interceptions for touchdowns. There are some things within those plays that I saw from the sideline we need to do better. Miscommunication has a little bit to do with a young receiver." The first interception was intended for Justin Blackmon.
It is not getting any easier for Blaine Gabbert, "momentum swings that bad. You have two pick sixes, a fumble before the half, giving away points, you are not going to win many ballgames doing that."
The Jags get next weekend off and then head out to Oakland to play the Raiders. Paul Posluszny joins Brent Martineau and Jeff Lageman on Jaguars All Access Monday night at 7 on CBS47. Thanks for clicking in.
