Jacksonville Jaguars Roundup

Without pressure on quarterback, Jaguars defense is cooked | jacksonville.com

The Jaguars defense knew the task they faced Monday night when they went against San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers. "We wanted to find ways to make him uncomfortable and force him into bad throws and we weren’t able to do that and he was able to put the ball on the money," said middle linebacker Paul Posluszny. "That’s one of the things we need to fix coming out of that game. We’ve got to find ways to put pressure on the quarterback."

He said he’ll be here. And he’ll be ready.
