In one of the most important games in the Gus Bradley era, the Jacksonville Jaguars hoped to get a win at home against the Oakland Raiders, and sneak their way back to a .500 record at 3-3.

After a three and out by both teams to begin the game, the Raiders took the first lead, using a nine-play, 63-yard drive to set up a field goal for Sebastian Jankowski, giving them a 3-0 lead.

Trying to avoid another slow start, the Jaguars offense drove down the field, getting the ball in the red-zone at the Raiders 18 yard line. Unfortunately, Bortles was picked off throwing into triple coverage by David Amerson, on one of Bortles worst throws of the year.

The Jaguars defense stepped up after the turnover, only allowing the Raiders to gain 27 yards, forcing them to punt. Once again though, the Jaguars shot themselves in the foot as Rashad Greene muffed a punt, giving the Raiders excellent field position at the Jaguars 17-yard line.

The Jaguars defense once again held up, as they forced the Raiders to go three and out. Forcing them into another Janikowski field goal, giving them a 6-0 lead.

The offense responded quickly. With a 25 yard forced defensive interference penalty, and a 42-yard Chris Ivory run, the team was set up to try and take the lead. The Jaguars red zone play calling was once again questionable, with a  failed fade pass to Julius Thomas, and a throw in the white flag five-yard slant when they needed 10 yards to score. They settled for a field goal by Jason Myers, cutting the lead to 6-3.

The Raiders responded by driving down the field with an 11-play, 75-yard drive capped off by a 2 yard touchdown run by Latavius Murray, giving them a 13-3 lead.

With a 10 point deficit, the Jaguars brought out their no huddle offense, and drove into the Raiders red-zone once again, only to be disappointed, and have to settle for another field goal by Jason Myers. The field goal cut the lead to 13-6.

The Raiders next drive really opened up the game, as Michael Crabtree really abused Prince Amukamara on the drive, especially with a 56 yard catch on a go route. Crabtree then abused Amukamara again, beating him on a 2 yard slant for a touchdown, extending the Raiders lead to 20-6.

With the ball back in their hands in the second half, the Jags hoped to put together a good drive to get them back in the game. The offense stalled once again, and they settled for a field goal on a 7 play 39 yard drive, cutting the lead to 20-9.

After four combined drives by both teams that ended in no points, the Raiders took advantage of good field position with a starting point at the Jags 42, and extended their lead to 23-9, with a 44 yard field goal by Janikowski.

The dumb mistakes continued for the Jaguars, as the following drive was halted by what would have been a first down play by Marqise Lee, who was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct, forcing the Jaguars into a third-and-20, and another three and out.

The Jaguars meltdown continued, as Malik Jackson was called for two 15-yard penalties on the next drive. One being a roughing the passer, and one unsportsmanlike penalty call for cursing at a referee. This set up the Raiders in field goal position once again, as Janikowski hit another field goal, this one a 52-yard field goal to extend their lead to 26-9.

A couple of possessions later, the offense finally put a decent drive together, albeit in garbage time, as they drove 83 yards down the field on 13 plays, capped off by a Julius Thomas touchdown catch to cut the lead to 26-16.

The Jaguars meltdown continued, as the Jaguars gave up a 35-yard run to the Raiders punter Marquette King on a bobbled snap, which basically summed up the day for the Jaguars.

Jalen Ramsey was also ejected for fighting, joining Malik Jackson in the locker room as the second player on the Jaguars to be ejected in the game.

The Raiders went on to score another touchdown on the drive, as Latavius Murray scored on a nine-yard rush, ending any hopes of the Jags coming back. The Raiders extended the lead to 33-16.

That would end up being the final score, as the Jaguars fell to the Raiders 33-16 in embarrassing fashion.

The Jaguars fall to 2-4, and prepare to play the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night. If this isn't time to hit the panic button, i don't know what moment will be.
