No whistle = Jags TD. No NE Patriot in front of him, and he can fly.

There should not have been a whistle on the play, as Jack was not contacted after the recovery.
Jack would have been down by contact so even if there wasn't a whistle, any TD he may have scored would have been called back.

Good effort but the defense couldn't hold up with a 10 point 4thQ lead.

Two top level defenses didn't get it done yesterday.

Jaguars defense is not elite...it's good and solid at times but not elite.


week 15: 49ers scored 44 points......Steelers scored 42 points.....Titans beat them twice....and they had a meltdown in the 4th quarter against the Patriots by allowing 14 points.



they have to add blitz packages in their defense and not be so stubborn in just rushing 4 defenders and give elite QB's all the time in the world and expect their secondary to hold up.


Eagles have blitz packages in their defense and they get to the QB at a better rate than the Jaguars.

No one touched him from the Pats. He is allowed to get up and run unless the opponent makes contact.

My initial take on the fumble was that it wasn't a fumble. Lewis had the ball on his hip with his hand on the ball when his body was down, before Jack got possession.

They could have easily called it not a fumble on the field and I would have been fine with the call standing as not a fumble. But since the call on the field was a fumble I am glad that they kept the call on the field. The NFL needs to get back to "conclusive evidence" needed to overturn calls. I think that is a big part of the problem with replays these days. Let the replays correct the blatantly obvious mistakes refs make. If you have to rewatch something 15 different times from 5 different angles and you're still not quite sure just go with the call on the field. That's what frustrated me with the overturned Benjamin TD catch in the Bills vs. Pats game.

Yeah - I guess my viewpoint is that if it's not obvious within 60-90 seconds, the call on the field stands, and move on.

The Vikings TD that was called incomplete is a good example. It only took one replay to figure out they missed it.

Bortles was just signed (last night) to a three year extension worth $54 million meaning for the foreseeable future, he is the franchise QB. Thoughts? Jacksonville Jaguars reach 3-year extension with QB Blake Bortles

Outside of the wild card game against the Bills he had a great playoff run. He was good in some spots in the regular season. Jags were without their best WR the whole year too. I think it was the right move to extend him for three years. See if he can improve upon his strong finish.

Exactly, and other starters like Allen Hurns missed several games. With a healthy Allen Robinson back along with Hurns, Marqise Lee, Marcedes Lewis at TE and the rookies who by/large stepped in nicely (Cole and Westbrook) the offense has the potential to be quite scary plus allow Fournette & Co to rack up some major rushing yards too.
