Although the Jaguars only lost by 13 points to the Saints on Sunday they could have easily been beaten by 30 had the Saints executed better. Jacksonville continued their display of ineptitude on offense, only gaining 274 yards of offense; a pathetic number for this season of offense.
In Blaine Gabbert’s first start at home he could not look any worse, unless his name was McCown. Gabbert finished 16 of 42 for 196 yards and an interception and touchdown. He missed open receivers all day long, and his receivers did not help either dropping several passes throughout the day.
The one promising thing that you could take away from this game is that the defense did play with some heart. They allowed the Saints to gain a ton of yards, but they were able to prevent them from scoring touchdowns, which was the only thing that kept this game from getting out of hand.
Jacksonville welcomes in another team led by a rookie quarterback next week with the Bengals coming in to town. Despite being a rookie Andy Dalton of Cincinnati has showed some flashes of brilliance, and led a game winning drive last week against the 3-0 Bills.
