This year marks the 25th season for the Jacksonville Jaguars. To celebrate, we’re counting down 100 days from our regular season kickoff with the top 100 moments in franchise history.
Yesterday it was Blake Bortles throwing for
three four touchdowns against the New England Patriots before the beginning of the end that was last season.
Today? Marcedes Lewis squares up against Johnathan Cyprien.

Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union had a good breakdown of what happened:
Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis became enraged in the first half of Sunday’s 15-10 loss to Tennessee when Titans strong safety Johnathan Cyprien would not let go of his ankle after he had fallen out of bounds.
“That [bleep] is not cool,” Lewis said. “I’ve never been a dirty player. I’ve never advocated playing the game dirty because I don’t have to play that way to be successful. He didn’t have to do that.
“I was already on the sideline, the tackle was already made and he’s whipping my heel? What was he doing? That’s not the way you do it. I was on my way up and he still had my leg.”
Cyprien played the last four years with the Jaguars and Lewis shoved him after he got back on his feet.
“That’s the first time I’ve really snapped like that because I’m under control,” Lewis said.
“But I’m not going to just let you do that.”
