Bills vs. Jaguars results: Turnovers doom Jacksonville

New, comments

The biggest reason for the Jaguars loss on Sunday was because of the turnover battle, especially brutal redzone turnovers.

The Jacksonville Jaguars moved to 4-10 on the season following their 27-20 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, but it felt like a game that the Jaguars let slip away. Not to discredit anything that the Bills did at EverBank Field, as they capitalized and forced mistakes, but it was a game that could have just as easily been a Jaguars victory if not for four turnovers.

"Four turnovers, you’re not going to win any games," Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne said after the loss to the Bills.

We looked at the turnover differential last week and how it was a big factor in the Jaguars change of form since they bye week, as they were winning the battle +5. On Sunday though, the Jaguars lost the battle at -2, but not only that, they had multiple red zone turnovers.

"You lose the turnover battle and your chances of winning are very slim," Henne added. "Our job is to protect the ball and score points when we’re down there and keep it in our favorable end of the field."

As discussed before, this season the Jaguars just aren't a team who can win losing the turnover battle, especially when the turnovers occur in the redzone.
