Check out Episode 77 of the JaguarReport Podcast, hosted by Gus Logue and John Shipley.
My hot take is that the Jaguars’ issues lie more in the front than the backend of each side of the ball. Yes, the passing offense and passing defense were each exposed in Cleveland, due in part to injuries to wide receivers Zay Jones and Christian Kirk plus cornerbacks Tyson Campbell and Tre Herndon, respectively. (The latter three players missed Sunday’s game.)
But the ability to run the football is what lost the Week 14 contest for the Jaguars. The Browns had enough success on the ground for Joe Flacco to toss 3 touchdowns via play action, while the Jaguars were forced to abandon their run game early on. Better trench play for both the offense and the defense could’ve altered the final scoreboard.
What are your hot takes after yesterday’s game, Jaguars fans?
