JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Jacksonville Jaguars lost a heartbreaker to the Kansas City Chiefs, 27-20. It put an end to their playoff run and season. If you weren’t in Kansas City, there’s a good chance you were at Daily’s Place for the official watch party in Duval.
It was a tough loss and fans were upset but also told Action News Jax, they’re still proud of this team. While the Jagaurs season, unfortunately, comes to an end, fans are keeping their heads high and are excited for what’s to come in the future.
“They could’ve won, it’s not like Kansas City beat them down, we came to play and I’m so proud of them I can’t wait until next year,” Ann Tillman said.
Daily’s Place was packed with thousands to support the team back in Duval. There were highs and lows throughout the entire game.
At one point in the season, the Jags were 2-6 and lost 5 in a row. Fans say to make it this far exceeds expectations.
“Everybody always believed just got to maximize the opportunities, but a heck of a season,” Wesley Scott said.
“We weren’t supposed to win the division they said, we weren’t supposed to win the first playoff game they said, and to finish the season the way we did was gravy, the cherry on top it just shows what there will be many wins to come in the future,” Satchel Whetsel.
Even though the ride is over, fans say this is just the beginning.
“This fan base has come back together in words you can’t describe,” Whetsel said.”We don’t regret a single moment of tonight we fought back and will get them next time.”
