Blake Bortles wins first career game after throwing for 300 yards

Three hours ago, Blake Bortles had never won a game with the Jacksonville Jaguars while also throwing for 300 yards. He had 44 career games coming into this game — 10 of which were 300-yard efforts — and he was a lowly 0-10.

Enter offensive mastermind Doug Marrone.

Bortles finished the day going 26-for-38 for 325 yards and two touchdowns — one passing, one receiving. (No, really.)

And for the first time in his career, a 300-yard game was also met with a victory.

Before today, Bortles had one 300-yard game in 2014, six in 2015, and three so far this year until today.

Fourth time’s the charm. Go Jaguars.
