The most points the Jaguars have given up all season was 32 to the Jets in week two and the Chargers are threatening to up that mark with 31 points through three quarters. Philip Rivers has found a lot of success through the air, particularly with his deep ball and it was a 52-yard touchdown heave to Malcom Floyd on the opening possession of the half that gave the Chargers a 17 point lead.
The Jaguars troubles in the secondary led to cornerback Ashton Youboty being pulled in favor of newly added Morgan Trent. The offense has struggled to find the momentum that they found at the beginning of the second quarter and hasn't crossed mid-field since Maurice Jones-Drew took a shuffle pass up the middle of the San Diego defense.
It would take the biggest offensive explosion of the season for the Jaguars to have a chance at coming back. The Jaguars currently have the ball to start the 3rd quarter on their own 36 yard line after a strong defensive stop led by linebacker Daryl Smith.
