Jaguars vs. Broncos final score: Jacksonville goes down swinging in 35-19 loss

Doug Pensinger

The Jaguars finished with 362 yards of total offense, only 45 fewer than the Denver Broncos, but were unable to stick with Peyton Manning in a 35-19 loss.

The Jacksonville Jaguars were overmatched and simply not as talented as the Denver Broncos when the two teams met on Sunday, but it's hard to say that the divide between the two rosters was very noticeable as the Jaguars looked impressive in a 35-19 loss.

Broncos QB Peyton Manning entered the game with 20 touchdown passes and one interception, but was relatively held in check by the Jaguars defense, finishing with 28-of-42 passes completed for 295 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. While that doesn't sound like the stat-line of someone held in check, the Jaguars avoided allowing the big play and held the Broncos to their lowest offensive output of 2013.

On offense, the Jaguars found plenty of success feeding Justin Blackmon across the middle of the field, as the second-year receiver racked up 190 yards receiving on 14 receptions from Chad Henne. However, the team managed just one touchdown on three red zone trips and made crucial errors, including a botched snap on a field goal, a failed fake punt and a missed two-point conversion.

The Jaguars fall to 0-6 with the loss, but improvement continues to be seen. They'll now look for their first victory of the season in Week 7 when the San Diego Chargers travel to EverBank Field.
