Bengals vs. Jaguars final score: Everything goes wrong in 27-10 loss

Things are seriously wrong in Jacksonville, as the Jaguars lost 27-10 to fall to 1-3, in a game that was undoubtedly one of the most disappointing losses so far in 2012.

Did the defense play well against Andy Dalton and A.J. Green? No, I'd say they didn't really as Green shredded Rashean Mathis and the right side of the Jaguars secondary throughout the game. But the story of the game wasn't the defensive struggles, it was the offensive struggles that resulted in only 10 points for the Jaguars, that truly cost the home team.

Despite completing over two thirds of his passes, Blaine Gabbert finished with just 186 yards passing against a defense that ranked No. 29 in the NFL and was missing four cornerbacks. The running game was even more baffling as it only managed 69 yards against a defense that couldn't stop anyone in the first three weeks.

We'll have more analysis, but for now I'm going to go sit in a corner and cry for a while.
