After falling behind 6-0 late in the second quarter, it looked like the Jaguars were going to lose another low-scoring game. But thanks to late game heroics by the defense and some stellar running by Denard Robinson and rookie Storm Johnson, the Jaguars were able to score three unanswered TDs to beat the Browns 24-6.
Jaguars QB Blake Bortles got his first win, but was the first to admit he played badly: Bortles completed 17 of 31 passes for 159 yards, with one touchdown and three interceptions. He now has an NFL-high 10 interceptions, an average of two a game since he took over for the benched Chad Henne.
“Bad, not good,” Bortles said of his performance. “The defense and offensive line and running game won this game, no doubt about it. Anybody can see that. Obviously, I’m not happy with the way I played, but I’m extremely happy with the outcome of the game.”
Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch said that when Bortles came off the field hanging his head after an interception, Fisch gave him a pep talk.
“I told him, ‘That’s not going to be the last pick you ever throw so move on,’” Fisch said. “We weren’t going to sit there and just go through each pick. We can talk about that [Monday].”View poll on FanMob
