Jaguars vs. Falcons 2013: Second half game thread

Join the BCC community to discuss the second half of Thursday's preseason game between the Jaguars and Falcons.

The Jaguars don't have a win in the 2013 preseason, but if they can manage to avoid blowing another second half lead, this time against the Atlanta Falcons, they'll be able to buck that trend. After two quarters at the Georgia Dome, the Jaguars lead the Falcons, 10-9.

Part of the reason the Jaguars have been able to hold the Falcons offense in check is that most of the defensive starters earned play time against an offense that did not feature Matt Ryan or any other recognizable offensive player for Atlanta.

While Chad Henne earned the start for the Jaguars against a Falcons defense that predominantly featured backups, he didn't look very good, finishing with 6-of-10 passes completed, including an interception thrown on the team's opening possession.

Instead it was Jordan Todman who again made some noise in the preseason, running for an 18-yard touchdown in the first quarter to break the scoreless tie. Todman has also accumulated two receptions and contributed as a kickoff.
