The Jaguars cap off an exciting Revenue Week
Jacksonville Jaguars Hats , with a rare Sunday morning match up against the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles, from Wembley Stadium in London, England. Follow along with us all day long as we await to watch what new ways Blake Bortles can turn the ball over today!Live Blog:12:25 PM: The Jaguars get to midfield and go for it on 4th & 2, but Bortles rushes the pass and throws the ball to Casper the Friendly Ghost. Eagles takeover, and that will do it.12:15 PM: After the Jaguar appeared to force a fumble but was overturned, the defense forces a three and out and Bortles and the offense will get five minutes to go, down 6.12:07 PM: The Jaguars answer with a drive of their own that includes a 37 yard catch and run from TJ Yeldon, but on 3rd & goal Chark lets the ball tip off his fingers and is unable to corral it in for a touchdown. Lambo makes another field goal, and the Jags cut the lead to 6, with 7 minutes left in the game. Eagles 24-18.11:57 AM: Philadelphia slashes the defense through the air with the rookies in the secondary getting absolutely torched on three straight plays. The defensive line is having trouble getting home since the first half, a reoccurring theme this year. Wentz his Ertz in the end zone over rookie Tre Herndon in coverage, for the Eagles touchdown. Eagles 24-15.11:48 AM: The Jaguars drive from midfield but have to settle for another Josh Lambo field goal. DJ Chark slips while turning the corner on a completed 2nd down play during the drive, costing the Jags a likely touchdown to take the lead. 17-15 Eagles, early 4th quarter.11:36 AM: Defense forces a three and out, as Myles Jack gets home on a blitz on third down. On the injury front, Quenton Meeks is out with a knee injury. Jags return the punt to midfield on a big run by Westbrook.11:29 AM: Hey look, the Jaguars score a TOUCHDOWN! Blake moves the ball relatively well through the air on the drive, including good yardage from David Grinnage and Yeldon, and caps the drive with a 3rd down pass to Dede Westbrook for about a 20 yard touchdown. Jag fail on the two point attempt, Eagles lead 17-12 in the 3rd quarter.11:18 AM: The Eagles go 95 yards, yes, 95 yards mostly through the air against a Jaguars defense that no team fears any longer and scores on a 28 yard touchdown pass to some running back you never heard of. 17-6 Eagles and we can pretty much pronounce the body dead here.11:07 AM: Jaguars opening drive of the first half gets going with an actual decent pass from Bortles to Donte Moncrief for 15 yards, but stalls out shortly after with a near sack on 3rd down. The Jaguars ran four straight passes for some reason. Eagles take over at their 5, following the punt.10:45 AM: Wentz connects with rookie tight end Dallas Goedert for a 30 yard touchdown. Eagles will go into halftime with a 10-6 lead, turnovers kill.10:38 AM: Bortles completes a pass on 2nd down to Keelan Cole, who fumbles after what would’ve been a good pick up for a first down. Malcolm Jenkins recovers for the Eagles, who take over at midfield with three times out and a little over a minute in the half. Cole has been awful since Week 2.10:36 AM: The Jaguars force their first three and out, as Meeks comes up with another near interception on a good pass break up to force the punt. Jags take over at their 40 with a minute and half left.10:26 AM: Jacksonville gets the ball moving again, as Bortles hits DJ Chark for a 20 yard gain and gets around 17 yards on 3rd & 22 following a sack and delay of game on Bortles. It’s just enough yardage to try a 57 yard field goal and Lambo......nails it! Best player on the team this year Jacksonville Jaguars Hoodie , makes it 6-3 Jags, as we near the two minute warning in the first half.10:17 AM: Philly gets the ball into the red zone, thanks in part to a dropped interception from rookie corner Quenton Meeks which gave Went and company new life to pass the ball down the field in strikes to Zack Ertz and Alshon Jeffrey. They get into down and goal territory, until Calais Campbell sacks Wentz on 3rd & goal. Eagles field goal makes it a 3-3 game. On the injury front, Telvin Smith has left the game with a shoulder and a bruised ego.10:05 AM: The Jags ensuing drive off the interception goes nowhere, as Bortles is sacked on 3rd down by Chris Long, and are forced to punt.10:00 AM: The Eagles drive into Jags territory, until Wentz is picked off in then end zone by Jalen Ramsey. 2.0 gets his first pick of the season, and the Jags defense forces their second turnover in as many Eagle drives. Big statement being made by the defense currently.9:50 AM: The Jaguars take the first possession on the turnover and use Bortles’ legs to take the ball into Eagles territory, before Carlos Hyde is stuffed short on 3rd & 1. Josh Lambo hits a 50 yard field goal, and the Jags have their first lead since the Jets game three weeks ago. 3-0 Jags.9:35 AM: The Jaguars won the toss, and elected to defer. So we already win by being spared watching the offense for at least a few more minutes.9:42 AM: Marcel Dareus gets a sack/strip on Wentz and the fumble is recovered by Telvin Smith, who takes it deep into Eagles territory. A hold on Harrision will bring the return back a bit, but the Jags finally get a big play and turnover from the defense after weeks of not producing one in meaningful playing time.9:20 AM: Speaking of Fournette, here’s the latest.9:15 AM: The Jaguars inactives include cornerback AJ Bouye who did not make the trip, and DJ Hayden who did make the trip and was part of the group arrested Friday night in London over a club bar tab dispute. The other three players, Barry Church, Rodney Harrison, and Jarrod Wilson are all active, most likely because that’s literally all the safeties besides Cody Davis. Other inactives include Leonard Fournette, Duane Smoot, Eli Ankou, and no one else relevant.9:06 AM: Good morning, the Jaguars play for their season today, and hope to enter their bye week at .500, which after the last three weeks would be a miracle in of itself. Will it happen? Sure, Jan. Wembley Stadium is staying in the hands of English soccer.American sports magnate Shad Khan abandoned a 600 million pound ($790 million) bid for the English Football Association's main asset on Wednesday after recognizing the extent of opposition to the sale.Khan, who owns the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars and Premier League soccer club Fulham, had seen buying Wembley as a way of raising the prospects of an American football franchise moving to London.After the takeover fell through a week before a key FA vote Customized Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys , Khan reiterated the Jaguars' commitment to continue playing an annual regular-season game in London, but only as a "home away from home."The FA was under no financial pressure to sell the 11-year-old stadium but seized on Khan's interest as a chance to fund soccer facilities in communities across England while retaining the use of Wembley for national team matches and domestic cup finals.Even with English soccer on a high after the men's national team reached its first World Cup semifinal in 28 years in July, the FA leadership failed to build support for selling a stadium with one of the world's most recognizable sporting brands.The FA disclosed last week that there was more opposition than support after surveying 22,500 people, including club and league officials, referees, adult and youth players, coaches, volunteers and members of the public."The intent of my efforts was, and is, to do right by everyone in a manner that strengthens the English game and brings people together, not divides them," Khan said. "Unfortunately, given where we are today, I've concluded that the outcome of a vote next week would be far from sufficient in expressing the broad support favored by the FA chairman to sell Wembley Stadium."The FA hoped for a speedy sale after going public with Khan's offer in April and only provided significant details of the agreement terms when it became clearer that resistance to a deal was growing on its 127-member council.One of the most vocal critics was Gary Neville, who played for England and Manchester United before working as assistant coach on the national team for four years. Neville told a British parliamentary hearing into the sale in July it was "ridiculous" that Wembley had to be sold to pay for grassroots infrastructure when England hosts the world's richest soccer competition. The Premier League generates more than 2 billion pounds every season from broadcasters and agents received 211 million pounds last year from the 20 teams for negotiating player transfers and contracts."At a recent meeting with Mr. Khan he expressed to us that, without stronger support from within the game, his offer is being seen as more divisive than it was anticipated to be and has decided to withdraw his proposal," FA chief executive Martin Glenn said in a statement. "Wembley Stadium is an iconic venue that is revered around world and it will continue to thrive under the ownership and direction of The FA."While the FA maintained that "Wembley Stadium will not be sold," Khan has not given up on buying the north London stadium."I cannot rule out revisiting the opportunity at another time when perhaps the Football Association family is unified in its views on the opportunity," he said.Wembley, which opened in its first guise in 1923, has staged NFL games every year since the new stadium under the arch was completed 11 years ago at a cost of 800 million pounds.Khan's Jaguars are still committed to trips to the British capital, with a deal to play games in London through 2020 at Wembley or the new stadium being built for Premier League club Tottenham, which has a 10-year NFL contract."We will continue to emphasize London and the role the U.K. plays in ensuring a promising long-term future for the Jaguars in Downtown Jacksonville," Khan said. "London as the Jaguars' home away from home remains a priority. Downtown Jacksonville with the Jaguars serving as a catalyst in its revitalization remains a priority."
