With a chance to capture a third victory on the season, the Jacksonville Jaguars came up well short, unable to score a touchdown against the Miami Dolphins in a loss. And for fans of the Jaguars, a loss in a seemingly winnable game might be good reason to turn their attention elsewhere.
Over at Big Cat Country, the message was pretty clear. After recapping another poor offensive showing, the bloggers redirected attention elsewhere — to the race for the upcoming NFL draft's No. 1 overall pick.
Both teams are 2-12 on the year after Sunday's action, and with a coaching situation that is certainly up in the air, there's plenty of off-field intrigue for fans to which fans can turn their attention.
On the field on Sunday, things were not bright for the Jaguars. In fact, the 24-3 final score was a generous one for the Jaguars, according to the bloggers.
Had it not been for a bizarre fake field goal attempt or multiple mistakes by the Dolphins offense that resulted in the home team settling for field goals rather than touchdowns, the score actually could've been worse.
There was some hope in the first half, as Jacksonville seemed to be moving the ball well, especially through the air with Justin Blackmon and Cecil Shorts each hauling in six catches. But touchdowns were not to be seen at the end of good drives.
The Jaguars were able to move the ball in the first half, but couldn't convert that in to points. And while the defense was able to hang with the Dolphins in the first half, multiple long drives in the second half sapped the defense of any momentum that it carried into the game.
