It’s not often when a team with only two wins has a lot of buzz in December but that’s what the Jags fans were feeling heading into Buffalo. Between how good the offense look and the acquisition of the pass rushing specialist Jason Babin the team looked set for a late season run. That all came crashing down on Sunday in upstate New York.
The Jags offense was struggling again while the defense couldn’t stop the run. The Jags gave up 232 yards on the ground to the Bills and three of the four TDs they surrendered came from the running game. On the other side of the ball the Jags rush attack was nonexistent. Only 50 yards all game long between the two running backs and Chad Henne. Henne’s day wasn’t his best performance but it wasn’t bad either. He threw for over 200 yards and a score and ran for another touchdown. The one bright spot is it was another good game for Cecil Shorts. He had 77 yards receiving and one touchdown bring his team leading TD total to 7. Unfortunately the game wasn’t so good for new Jag Jason Babin. He finished the day with zero sacks and 1 tackle for loss.
The Jags latest loss to the Bills 34-18 is just one of many frustrating games the Jags have dropped this season. We know they won’t make the playoffs so all the Jags fans have to look forward too is the team getting better every week. For a few players that hasn’t been a problem but for most of the Jags every time they take a step forward the following week they take a step back. On the bright side the with Kansas City winning the Jags still have a shot for the number 1 overall pick in April’s Draft.
