The Jacksonville Jaguars are traveling to play the San Diego Chargers but more importantly...
SIR BLAKE BORTLES IS STARTING.
In the second half of the 44-17 blowout to the Indianapolis Colts, Bortles was the exact opposite of veteran starter Chad Henne. He made quick decisions, he escaped pressure, he ran the read option effectively, and he got EverBank as rowdy as it has ever been for a 27-point loss.
How will Blake do in his first ever start? Let's do this!

End 1Q -- Chargers 3, #Jaguars 0. ... Jags will have first-and-goal from 5 or something like that.— Ryan O'Halloran (@ryanohalloran) September 28, 2014

Chargers 3, Jaguars 0 | Nick Novak 33 FG, 3:44 remaining 1Q. Drive: Seven plays, 36 yards, 3:08.— John Oehser (@JohnOehser) September 28, 2014
4:20 PM: The Jaguars and Chargers are still scoreless after the first three drives of the game. Around midfield the Jaguars went for it on fourth-and-short and didn't get a good enough push.
I like going for it and I like the call for Bortles to keep it. Interior offensive linemen just didn’t get a good enough push.— BCCGameday Tweets (@BCCGameday) September 28, 2014
4:09 PM: Toby Gerhart fumbles on his first carry, and Denard Robinson moved into lone running back on the next series.
