Chargers hold off late push from Jaguars Sunday afternoon

The Jaguars have now lost six straight games.

The Chargers give the Jaguars their sixth straight loss, today by a final of 39-29. We thought early in Sunday’s game it would be all Chargers throughout. Down 16-nothing the Jaguars looked out of life out of the gates. The Jacksonville offense didn’t pick up a first down until under 10 minutes left in the second quarter. Following the halftime break they found a little spark.

While the game may have ended with a double digit Chargers win the game was back and forth for most of the 2nd half. Gardner Minshew finished today’s loss throwing for 173 yards and two touchdowns. His opposing quarterback, rookie Justin Herbert totaled 347 yards and three touchdowns. It is Herbert’s first career NFL victory.

It is the first time in franchise history the Jaguars have given up 30 plus points in six straight games. 

Doug Marrone was very aggressive in the loss going for it four times on fourth down. Is that a sign that his job could be in jeopardy? If he does return it will be two weeks from now following Jacksonville’s bye week.
