Texans aware of Blake Bortles' scrambling skills

Jaguars vs. Cowboys: Week 6 sack analysis

Jaguars vs. Cowboys: Week 6 sack analysis

Another three sacks to break down! The Jacksonville Jaguars were (again) disappointing on offense against a Dallas Cowboys team they really should have had success against. Among a host of other things going wrong, Blake Bortles was sacked three times. Who was responsible for those sacks? Let’s take a look. Sack #1: 3rd & 3 at DAL 32, 15:00 in 2Q (Shotgun) B. Bortles sacked at DAL 40 for -8 yards (M. Collins). Andrew Norwell gets beat bad by a simple spin move from Maliek Collins. In the time it took Bortles to make his second read, Collins is right there. Fault: Andrew...

Cowboys news: The defense gets the spotlight

Although there are some nuggets about the offense and other things as well. Any Given Sunday: Cowboys over Jaguars | Rivers McCown, Football Outsiders The guys over at Football Outsiders tend to think a bit outside the box, and what they saw in the Cowboys win over the Jaguars wasn’t a dominant offensive performance (and the good things they did say about that mostly focused on the run game). They put most of the credit on Dallas taking advantage of a crippled Jacksonville offensive line and Blake Bortles being, well, Blake Bortles. So let’s recount some facts that are relevant to...

Who would be on the Jaguars NBA team?

The NBA season officially kicks off tonight! To celebrate its arrival, I wanted to take a look and see if we could construct a basketball team solely comprised of Jacksonville Jaguars players. Without further ado, here’s your Jaguars starting five! Point Guard — Dede Westbrook, 6’0”, 178 lbs. Dede’s our best wide receiver in space, so it makes sense that he’s our starting point guard. He’s averaging 64.5 yards a game, with most of that coming after the catch. Who can forget his 61 yard touchdown to ice the game against the New England Patriots? Blake Bortles dumps it off to...

Bortles an issue, but may have been doomed from start

Bortles an issue, but may have been doomed from start

The Jacksonville Jaguars offense has been in a state of disarray the past two weeks, and in reality for every game outside of two this season. The Jaguars offense looked great against a slow New England Patriots defense, eating them up with crossing patterns, and had some explosive plays against the New York Jets, but outside of that the offense has left a lot to be desired. A big part of that has been the play of Blake Bortles, who quite frankly hasn’t been very good outside of those two games and was pretty bad the last two weeks. It’s not all Bortles’ fault, there are short comings...

Dede Westbrook defends touchdown celebration

The Jacksonville Jaguars were beaten by the Dallas Cowboys by a score of 40-7 yesterday at AT&T Stadium, not scoring a single point until the third quarter. Down 24-0 after halftime, Blake Bortles and Dede Westbrook connected on a 34-yard touchdown and Westbrook celebrated with the help of Keelan Cole and some other receivers. Westbrook, however, caught some flak for the celebration. Fans didn’t think a team down 24-7 late in the game should be celebrating. To his credit, Westbrook responded with a tweet on Monday morning. #GoCrazy pic.twitter.com/pJtrCyAm5c— Dede Westbrook...

Blake Bortles: Cowboys game “a waste of a day and a trip”

The Jacksonville Jaguars were dominated for the second week in a row. However, this time it was all three phases failing on the road as they fell 40-7 to the Dallas Cowboys on the road. Nothing looked good this week. At least last week you could say the defense played a pretty good game and limited opportunities to the Kansas City Chiefs, who boasted the No. 1 offense in the NFL. This week, however, you couldn’t look anywhere without seeing failings on even fundamental levels — the defense was getting gashed in the run game, the offense could only convert four third downs all game, the...

Did UFC superstar Conor McGregor help inspire the Cowboys to a win over the Jaguars?

ARLINGTON -- Jeff Heath had no idea Conor McGregor would be in attendance for Sunday's game at AT&T Stadium. He was even more stunned to see the superstar mixed martial artist briefly join the defensive backs' huddle during pregame warmups.Being a huge fan, Heath was eager to pay tribute during the game if given the opportunity.He did so late in the third quarter after intercepting Jacksonville's Blake Bortles near midfield and returning it 49 yards.After being tackled at the Jaguars' 8-yard line, Heath broke away from teammates to properly execute McGregor's signature strut.

DeMarcus Lawrence had the most savage response about whether or not Blake Bortles was a challenge

Tank is feeling it, as were the Cowboys against the Jaguars. The Dallas Cowboys thumped the Jacksonville Jaguars nice and good on Sunday afternoon, 40-7 is something to be proud of. It was a dominating performance in every capacity for the Cowboys. Their offense put up 40 points, their defense limited the Jaguars to single digits, Brett Maher made a kick from Jupiter. You couldn’t ask for more. Dallas officially got back to .500 thanks to their big-time win and they’ll look to take another step forward next week when they visit the Washington Redskins. They’ll likely bathe in...

Jaguars get put down by the Cowboys, as season reaches a tipping point

What three weeks ago was a promising season that appeared to be barreling towards a second-consecutive playoff appearance and vying for another AFC South title, has officially gone fully off the rails, following a complete ass kicking for the second consecutive week on the road, this time at the hands of what was supposed to be a feckless Dallas Cowboys team by a score of 40-7. The Jaguars offense led by the consistently inconsistent Blake Bortles could never get anything generated, and for another week committed more turnovers than the defense could make up for as Bortle threw one God...
