Jaguars Stumble at Home Again; Fall to 2-10 After 20-10 Loss to Broncos

627695606

With a rookie quarterback and arguably the NFL’s best defense, the Denver Broncos were content to play conservatively at Jacksonville.

It was the perfect formula against the self-destructing Jaguars.

Bradley Roby returned an interception 51 yards for a touchdown, and the defending Super Bowl champions beat the mistake-prone Jaguars 20-10 on Sunday and gained ground in the AFC playoff picture.

Roby picked off Blake Bortles’ wobbler across the middle in the third quarter — star linebacker Von Miller hit Bortles as he released the ball — and went untouched the other way. It was one of three turnovers for Denver’s defense.

“They were exceptional,” Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said.

Jaguars Early Lead Not Enough; Fall to Bills in Buffalo 28-21

Jacksonville Jaguars v Buffalo Bills

LeSean McCoy scored twice, including a career-best 75-yard run, and the Bills won their second in a row by beating the Jacksonville Jaguars 28-21 on Sunday.

Tyrod Taylor’s 16-yard touchdown pass to Justin Hunter with 10:46 remaining put the Bills ahead for good during a second half in which the teams traded the lead five times. Taylor also scored on a 7-yard run in helping to keep Buffalo in the playoff hunt.

The Bills (6-5) won for the second straight week when trailing at halftime after doing so just once last season.

Buffalo trailed the Jaguars 7-6 after two quarters on Sunday, and overcame a two-point deficit in a 16-12 win at Cincinnati last week.

Jaguars Stumble in the Motor City; Fall to Lions 26-19 for 5th Straight Loss

Jacksonville Jaguars v Detroit Lions

Eric Ebron had a go-ahead, 1-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter and the Detroit Lions went on to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 26-19 Sunday.

Ebron’s first carry of his career, a handoff as he went from left to right after lining up as an off-the-line tight end, was set up by his career-long, 61-yard catch.

The Lions (6-4) have won five of six despite trailing in the fourth quarter of every game. For a change, Matthew Stafford didn’t have to lead a game-winning drive in the final minutes.

Jacksonville (2-8) has lost five straight.

The Jaguars had a chance to force Detroit to punt, or to go for it on a fourth-and-3 from their 46. Nose tackle Sen’Derrick Marks, though, was penalized for encroachment on a play in which Stafford probably didn’t intend to have the ball snapped.

Jaguars Stumble in Kansas City; Fall to 2-6 After 19-14 Loss to Chiefs

Jacksonville Jaguars v Kansas City Chiefs

Their starting quarterback and running back never dressed, their top wide receiver joined them on the sideline with an injury of his own, and their Pro Bowl tight end was ejected by an official who didn’t seem to think his antics were very funny.

Good thing for the Chiefs that everything was status quo on defense.

That stout bunch kept Blake Bortles in check most of the afternoon, then stuffed the Jaguars on fourth down with less than 2 minutes remaining deep in their own territory, preserving a 19-14 win on Sunday made even more impressive by the long odds the Chiefs overcame.

“That’s what football is all about. You’re going to have weeks where you have injuries,” said Nick Foles, who started in place of injured quarterback Alex Smith. “You have to step up and make plays.”
