Jaguars Pound Browns For First Win Of Season 24-6

Cleveland Browns v Jacksonville Jaguars

Winless no more.

After playing much better the last two weeks, the Jaguars finally came through today with a HUGE 24-6 win over the Cleveland Browns, who came into Sunday’s game riding high at 3-2.

The Jaguars defense dominated, pounding the Browns offense and QB Brian Hoyer, who had his worst day of the year, going 16 of 41 for 215 yards, throwing a late pick which sealed the win for Jacksonville after they went up 17-6.

The running game was weak as well for the Browns, as they ran 30 times for 69 yards, including 36 by Ben Tate. The Jags D gang tackled all day long, and it showed.

The Jags game plan was to run, and it paid off, as the Cats ran for 185 yards on 35 carries, with Denard Robinson running for a career-high 127 yards and a touchdown.

Blake Bortles threw three picks in the win, but was able to overcome them and with a defense that made big plays and a solid run game, the club gained their first win since December 5th of 2013.

Leading 6-0, the Browns went for it on a fourth down deep in Jags territory, and failed, turning the tide totally. The Jags hit a could big pass plays, and scored on a passing TD from Bortles to fellow rookie Allen Robinson for a 31-yard score to take a 7-6 lead at the half.

The second half the Jags laid the hammer on the Browns offense, and eventually the Jags offense was able to put the game away after Jordan Poyer fumbled a punt deep in Browns territory.

Robinson’s 8-yard TD run in the fourth quarter provided some cushion, and rookie Storm Johnson added a 4-yard scoring run a few minutes later – the exclamation point in Jacksonville’s third home victory in the last three seasons.

Jaguars Release Statement About Ebola Sign During Steelers Game

BzNyi_VCAAAe-MY.jpg large

Call it bad judgement at the sake of trying to be funny, but in the end it was a sign that blew up the internet after it was posted.

Jaguars mascot Jaxson DeVille was pictured with a sign that read “Towels Carry Ebola,” – poking fun at the Steelers’ Terrible Towels.

Today, team president Mark Lamping released a statement about the sign and the backlash the team got from it.

Lamping’s full statement:

“Improvisation and humor have both been key elements to the character of Jaxson DeVille, especially when he performs at home games. On Sunday, the person who has played Jaxson DeVille over the past 20 seasons made an extremely poor decision in that regard. The team was unaware of this inappropriate sign, which was hand-made by Jaxson during the fourth quarter of yesterday’s game, until after it had been displayed. We are handling the matter internally and taking it very seriously. We extend our sincerest apologies to anyone who was offended.”
