Jaguars vs. Bills First Half: Not So Good

The Jacksonville Jaguars trail entering halftime against the Buffalo Bills 17-10, but could easily be down quite a bit more. The Jaguars first team offense led by David Garrard began the game with two straight 3-and-outs, where the offense looked completely out of sorts. Garrard connected on his first 3 of 4 passes, then didn't complete another pass until there was 1:48 left in the half. He ended some drives on bad overthrows and taking a sack when he had plenty of time to throw the ball.

The Jaguars wound up scoring on an improbable run by Garrard, where he broke 62 tackles to scramble for a 4-yard touchdown. The drive was assisted by a 15-yard horse collar penalty and a questionable defensive pass interference call, that looked like it could have been offensive. Garrard wound up going 5 of 7 for 55 yards against Bills back up defenders in the two-minute drill.

Defensively, the Jaguars were actually worse than the offense. Ryan Fitzpatrick shredded the Jaguars defense, completing all 10 of his first 10 passes. The pass rush was nearly non-existent and the pass coverage wasn't much better. Rashean Mathis was burned deep for a touchdown and safety Dawan Landry was late on coverage for another touchdown.

Oh boy.
