Will The Jags Improve In The Second Half?
The Jaguars played the leagues toughest schedule as their first eight opponents, before Sundays results, had a combined record of 43-18 (.705). The slate for November and December eases up as their opponents combined record is 29-37 (.439), which should allow Gus Bradleys team a few opportunities to break into the win column. Or at least be more competitive even without suspended receiver Justin Blackmon.
Its impossible to sugarcoat how inferior the Jaguars have looked, not with the third-worst point differential in league history (minus-178) through eight weeks. When a team is losing games by an average margin of 22 points, the midterm report card wont be pretty.
