Jalen Ramsey “battling” to hold in emotions
It appeared the Jacksonville Jaguars had finally shaken a decade of ineptitude with their division title and playoff run last season, but the franchise has bottomed out in 2018 after their sixth consecutive loss. Cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who was once in tears on the sideline after a loss as a rookie, is having a hard time dealing with the collapse.
“I’ve been pretty pissed off,” Ramsey said after Sunday’s 20-16 loss to Pittsburgh at TIAA Bank Field, which was sealed on Ben Roethlisberger’s 1-yard touchdown run with five seconds to play. “I’m not going to lie to you. I have. Shit, man, I’ve been battling with my emotions, trying to hold them in.”
The Jaguars need to fire everyone
The Jacksonville Jaguars should request for the NFL to realign them back to the AFC Central. The Pittsburgh Steelers came back from down 16-0 in the third quarter to defeat the Jacksonville Jaguars on a last second quartback rush from two yards out by Ben Roethlisberger, 20-16.
The defense played nearly flawless for three and a half quarters, with Jalen Ramsey owning Antonio Brown and registering two interceptions, Barry Church’s old ass also even got a pick, that’s how dominant they played, but it wasn’t enough. Leonard Fournette ran his ass off and showed explosiveness and power once again after being out with a hamstring almost all of 2018 thus far, but it wasn’t enough.
5 Jaguars players who stood out against the Steelers
The Jacksonville Jaguars went out and absolutely dominated on defense. They forced
four three interceptions, they kept the Pittsburgh Steelers offense in check for the vast majority of the game, and... well... it didn’t matter because the offense — specifically the quarterback — couldn’t get it done.
And here we are, losers of six straight — seven on the year — and out of the playoff race.
