Lost it in Over Time

By reading the game's recap we can quickly figure out that the general thought of it all was that Oakland was pretty bad, but the Jags were even worse. But I think Jacksonville's 1-5 record may be a little misleading on what kind of team they are.

To start off the game, Jones-Drew comes out on the Jag's opening drive. But then things hit rock bottom in the second quarter when Chad Henne came in the game after QB Gabbert injured his left shoulder. With this being the situation it's hard to believe how things could possibly turn out well for the Jag's at all. Blowing a two touchdown lead and losing the game in OT is just about what Jags fans were fearing as soon as they saw Gabbert exit and Henne enter the game. It seems to me that the Oakland Raider got a freebie this time around.

Oakland turn the ball over 3 times, had more penalties and were 6-17 on 3rd down. How does Jacksonville lose against that? Well they had a single turn over, were penalized for more yards, and were 1-15 on 3rd down. They also only had 3 rushing first downs, while having just 6 passing first downs. I think it's safe to say that if Jones-Drew and Gabbert were still in the game those numbers would have been much different.

I think Jacksonville would have won this game, but too many things just weren't going their way. Yeah it was pretty bad, but at least Oakland got to play with their QB and RB.
