With just 42 days until kickoff, let’s talk about how in the 363 times the Jacksonville Jaguars have played a game in the NFL they’ve had 42 points scored on them exactly five times — four times in the regular season and once in the playoffs.

The most recent was against the Tennessee Titans and it’s the only game that wasn’t lopsided. It was a back-and-forth offensive slugfest that saw Blake Bortles throw for 322 yards and five touchdowns.

London hasn’t always been kind to the Jaguars. We managed just 10 points against the San Francisco 49ers and Colin Kapernick had 218 total yards and three touchdowns.

We were actually leading at one point and the game was 14-13 at halftime, but the Kansas City Chiefs managed 28 second-half points on their way to a 42-20 blowout.

That’s right — the first time we allowed 42 points was in the playoffs to a Denver Broncos team that we had upset in the previous playoffs.
