Just when you thought that it couldn’t get any worse

Just when you thought that it couldn’t get any worse Mens Josh Allen Jersey , the Jacksonville Jaguars will remind you that it most certainly can.Milking the clock with a 10-6 lead and time running out on the Washington...", the Jacksonville Jaguars will remind you that it most certainly can.Milking the clock with a 10-6 lead and time running out on the Washington Redskins chances, the Jaguars just needed to do what they had done all day in stopping an equally anemic Redskins offense and run out a couple of first downs to send the home crowd at TIAA Bank Field away with some positive vibes going into 2019. Instead, they got a sequence of events that included a deflected pass that should’ve been intercepted instead fall into the arms of receiver Jamison Crowder to set up a game-tying touchdown; A blatant offensive pass interference call on Donte Moncrief that would’ve extended the drive into Redskins territory; Another deflected pass, this time off the hands of Dede Westbrook and caught in the air by a Redskins defensive back. All of which led to a come from behind win for the Redskins, 16-13, in front of a modest crowd of Jaguars supporters seeing their team’s home schedule come to a merciful end.To say the offenses for either team were worthy of their playing times, would be a disservice to actual NFL offenses. The Jaguars leading rusher was quarterback Cody Kessler, whose 67 yards on the ground was ten more than his yards in the air. Leonard Fournette had accounted for all of 24 yards before being benched for all but one play in the second half, in which he produced a 22 yard run Black Josh Allen Jersey , before limping off the field in a microcosm of his Jaguars career to date. Washington’s leading rusher was quarterback Josh Johnson, on loan from the San Diego Fleet of the new Alliance of American Football League, but his 150 yards passing and lack of turnovers was enough to lead the Redskins back to .500, at 7-7 and still in the hunt for a wild card spot, allegedly. The Redskins trailed for much of the second half after a Dede Westbrook 73 yard punt return touchdown before halftime made it 10-3, Jaguars. But the Jaguars defense collapsed when it needed to make one more stop to bail out their offensive teammates and, much as has been the case all season, an otherwise good defensive performance was wasted on an offense that is an embarrassment to the game and to the fans.The Jaguars with the loss fall to an abysmal 4-10, with road trips coming against a desperate Miami Dolphins and the playoff-bound Houston Texans to finish the season, a 4-12 record seems inevitable. So does a multitude of organizational changes coming for the Jaguars. Aside from one game Womens Brandon Linder Jersey , the defense did pretty good!"The Jacksonville Jaguars offense was very, very bad throughout the year — especially in the fourth quarter over the final four games of the 2018 NFL season — but the defense... well, it wasn’t bad!We already graded the offense, now let’s grade the defense!Alfie Crow (@AlfieBCC)Even with the offense being abysmal seemed to still play well enough to keep the Jaguars in games for a point, even winning nearly two of them. They showed enough that you should be confident in a top-five defense in 2019, even with the expected cuts.Grade: B+Ryan Day (@ryaneatscake)Aside from the meltdown in Nashville, the defense is a big reason any of the remaining four games was close — and the reason they pulled out a win against the Miami Dolphins. They played well enough to win three of four games with even an average offense and that’s... pretty good in my book. Not enough for an A (of course) but it was a strong showing with the offense playing like the worst unit in the league.Grade: BJon Kirland (@BCBCouch)The quarter started out pretty bad, with the defense being treated like little kids in a father-son backyard football game at Tennessee. However, they mostly bounced back well and played winning football for the final three games of the season. Unfortunately, as has been the case all season Jalen Ramsey Jersey , the offense could barely amass first downs let alone points to help the cause. Calais Campbell, Yannick Nagkoue, and Myles Jack all had strong finishes the final four weeks, in my opinion.Grade: B-Ryan O’Bleness (@ryanobleness)Outside of the Tennessee game — where the Jaguars literally couldn’t tackle a soul -- the defense actually played pretty well in the final stretch. The Jags gave up 18.25 points per game during that stretch, which is already good, but if you throw out the Titans game as an outlier, the Jaguars only gave up 13.3 points per game in the final three contests. The Houston game wasn’t the greatest, but the Jaguars still held the Texans below their season scoring and total yardage average. The Jags also held the Dolphins and Redskins to one touchdown each. But the Titans game alone knocks them down a few pegs, so B- for me. Looking at the full season view, the unit kind of disappointed. While statistically strong in terms of yardage and points allowed in 2018 , the defense just didn’t get sacks, cause turnovers or make big plays this season, and it wasn’t able to carry the team like it was able to last year. Grade: B-Brian Fullford (@iambwf)The defense is talented. The defense has athletes. The sum is greater than its parts. Well, save Calais Campbell, Jalen Ramsey and Yannick Ngakoue. There is a serious maturity problem on this side of the ball. Telvin Smith has exhibited a “me first” attitude and, frankly, I’m done with him. Myles Jack still plays undisciplined and isn’t suited for the middle linebacker position. The defensive backs seemed to be playing out of synch. That being said, the front four is solid, and in spite of the issues with the back seven, if the offense was worth a damn this team would have gone 4-0 to end the season.Grade: BFilip Prus (@JaxonFil)Defense showed up again Womens Calais Campbell Jersey , including winning them a meaningless week 16 game against the Dolphins that hindered their draft position. The secondary improved with Ronnie Harrison taking over for Barry Church at strong safety, and Calais Campbell and Yannick Ngakoue played some of their best football of the year in the final quarter. Even Taven Bryan showed some evidence of starting to convert his first step quickness to power and penetrate from the three-technique position. If it wasn’t for allowing Derrick Henry to have their way with them in Tennessee, this unit could be on the cusp of a B+/A- grade in the fourth quarter. We could see a bit of a fire sale on the defensive side this offseason as the team looks to purge cap space, but the defense is in good shape.Grade: B-
