Jacksonville Jaguars Daily: Lack of pass rush dooms Jaguars

Logan Bowles-USA TODAY Sports

Lack of pass rush dooms Jacksonville Jaguars against Green Bay Packers -
Dante Fowler Jr. and Sen'Derrick Marks stood 10 feet apart but each used the same word to describe what it was like to play against Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers: Frustrating. Play after play the Jacksonville Jaguars failed to get to Rodgers, and with each failed pass-rush the players grew more frustrated. The lack of pressure on Rodgers was the main reason the Jaguars lost 27-23 in front of 63,179 fans at EverBank Field.

6 observations from Jaguars loss to Packers -
The Jacksonville Jaguars fell in dramatic, wonderous, typical Jaguars fashion to the Green Bay Packers by a score of 27-23. I could talk about silver linings and dandelions in these weeds, but you know what? It's the fourth year of a rebuild and Gus Bradley lost his 37th game because of Gus Bradley (and the coaching staff he hand-selected). Was play-calling and pre-game personnel moves to blame completely for the loss? Nope. But they didn't help.

See T.J. Yeldon score first touchdown of 2016 season -
Running back T.J. Yeldon scored the Jacksonville Jaguars' first touchdown of the 2016 NFL season on a 5-yard run with 1:24 left in the first quarter on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. Yeldon was met by Green Bay Packers free safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix at the 2-yard line as he ran up the middle, but the running back slammed through his former Alabama teammate on the way to the end zone.
