NFL power rankings Week 3: Titans fall back to earth after loss to Colts
25. Jacksonville Jaguars (0-2)
The legend of Gardner Minshew hit a roadblock in Week 2 after the Jacksonville Jaguars were only able to muster up 12 points in a loss to the Houston Texans. Minshew totaled 213 yards through the air, and added 56 yards on the ground.
The Jags were down 13-3 late in the fourth quarter and moved to within a touchdown on a Josh Lambo field goal. After scoring a touchdown on a pass from Minshew to DJ Chark with 30 seconds left, head coach Doug Marrone decided to go for the win with a two-point conversion that ultimately failed when Leonard Fournette was unable to find the end zone.
While it’s understandable why the Jags wanted to go for the win there, Jacksonville’s defense played well enough that it would have been wiser for Marrone to take the extra point and give his team a shot in overtime.
Dysfunction is already rearing its ugly head also, as Jalen Ramsey and Marrone got into a spat on the sideline during Sunday’s game. The Jags now fall to 0-2 and will get right back into action with a Thursday Night Football game against the Tennessee Titans at home on September 19th.
