ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — In the last two games, Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne dealt with and then overcame early adversity. Against Houston, it was a near-interception to end his first drive. Against Tennessee, it was a first-pass interception and a three-sack second series. Henne rebounded to throw for 615 and six touchdowns. He wasn’t as fortunate Sunday against Buffalo. The Jaguars punted on their first three possessions, low-lighted by two Jordan Shipley drops, just the start of a frustrating offensive day in a 34-18 loss to the Bills.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — On a chilly, dank, rainy afternoon, the conditions were perfect for running the football Sunday. But the Jaguars never got their running game going — a major reason for their 34-18 loss to the Buffalo Bills. They’re also down to fourth running back Montell Owens after Rashad Jennings went out with a concussion in the first half. Jennings gained 20 yards in eight carries before he was injured. Owens would add only 29 yards in seven attempts.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Jeremy Mincey was slipping on the jacket to his three-piece suit and shaking his head at the same time. He didn't care to get into a lot of deep analysis about how the Jaguars followed their second win of the year by throwing up a stink bomb. "What can you do?" said Mincey. "We gotta keep pushing. The show must go on." That's actually the discouraging part in all this mess for Jacksonville's NFL franchise. It still has four performances remaining in this season from Hades. And whatever promise of late-season redemption there might have been, it seemed to vanish Sunday in wet, windy
Chad Henne returned to reality, the Jaguars defense wasn’t any better with Jason Babin, and the Jacksonville Jaguars sunk lower to 2-10. This game got off to a rough start offensively for the Jaguars. Chad henne completed just three of his first 13 passes, the running game was sputtering, yet the defense managed to keep the Jaguars in it. That all crumbled when the Bills realized they could go big against the Jaguars.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. – This one was about momentum. Specifically, it was about keeping it, and as strange as it may sound for a team whose playoff hopes have long since dwindled, the Jaguars had a very real chance to do that at Ralph Wilson Stadium Sunday afternoon. It didn’t happen. Instead, the Jaguars lost to the Buffalo Bills, 34-18, allowing more than 200 yards rushing, rushing for a lot less than that and letting yet another game get away amid missed opportunities, penalties and dropped passes. "We didn’t play as well as I’d hoped," Jaguars Head Coach Mike Mularkey said. "After talking about it, we still did a lot of the things that have gotten us beat."
