Jaguars' defense yields too many yards | jacksonville.com

Thoughts on the Jaguars’ 14-10 loss to the Browns in Cleveland: What it means: The Jaguars fell to 3-7, and although they talked during the week of getting back into the AFC South race, the loss pretty much killed the chances of that. Decision-making at the end, when they were in position to win, was poor. Read on.
