Denver scored the perfect week to be forced to start Paxton Lynch. Jacksonville has a defense that, on paper, should be stingy against any offense, even if their record doesn’t show it. Denver wisely remedied early struggles by turning to a ground game that found a little daylight in the second quarter with the combination of and . But make no mistake — a Denver offense that already had its issues was only worse with Lynch in the lineup.

The Jaguars were in it late, but having witnessed three quarters of complete unpredictability on offense, it never felt like they were really in it. Jacksonville turned the ball over twice entering the latter stages of the fourth, including a Bradley Roby pick-six, and as we watched Bortles escape and fire rockets to anyone, anywhere, at any time, it seemed only a matter of time before turnover No. 3 happened. It eventually did, though only when the pocket collapsed on Bortles, forcing him to fumble and bringing a ho-hum finish to a ho-hum day that didn’t appear as such on the scoreboard.

With a roster filled with talent on both sides of the ball, an exciting draft class, and an ascendant young quarterback in Blake Bortles, a saucy narrative took hold positioning the Jaguars as one of the AFC’s breakout teams in 2016. Even Jags Lady believed.

Then the season started. The Jaguars are still bad at football and no play better sums up the disappointment in Jacksonville better than this fourth-down play late in Sunday’s loss to the Raiders.jersey

“That’s the best two-win team I’ve ever seen,” Ryan said, via The Buffalo News. “That’s the truth. I don’t get it. Statistically, they’re the seventh-rated defense in the league. They’re ranked higher than we are on defense. Their offense is 21st in the league, but now they’re healthy outside and they got three guys that can really play.

“They had way more Top 100 players than we did last year (Jacksonville had five on the NFL Network Top 100, while Buffalo had three). Looking at all that stuff, I thought it was the Jacksonville show. But you got a franchise quarterback, that’s what they all tell me. You got Chris Ivory at running back, who’s a great back — I had him with the Jets, I know all about him; he’s a handful — and you got (Allen) Hurns, (Allen) Robinson jersey and cheap jerseys and (Marqise) Lee is really playing well. … So if you think we’re going to overlook them, there’s no chance.”

While it’s too early in the season to talk about saving jobs or keeping a coaching staff together, Marrone’s offensive line could use a spirited performance against a 5-5 Bills team that will be doing its best to remain in the playoff hunt. Ryan called Jacksonville the best 2-8 team he’s ever seen this week.

Marrone’s name keeps coming up in head coaching discussions, though the recent level of performance in Jacksonville has possibly cooled his name by association. Could it change down the stretch? He has the chance to show his old fans this weekend. In the meantime, it could serve as a sign to Bills fans that they should appreciate what they have. Despite Ryan’s middling record, he would coach the Bills for the next 30 seasons if he was able to.

Through six games Robinson has shown no flashes of the deep-ball maven we expected. He has zero receptions of 25-air-yards or more. He had 10 such receptions last season. He also led the league with 31 catches of at least 20 yards in 2015; he has three in 2016.

Through six games Robinson has 26 catches for 296 yards, three touchdowns and 11.4 yards per catch. In the first six games of 2015, he had 28 receptions for 488 yards, five TDs and 17.4 YPC.

Mariota was 18 of 22 and had a 148.1 passer rating, the second-highest of his career. DeMarco Murray ran for 123 yards and a touchdown to help the Titans bounce back four days after squandering a lead in a 34-26 home loss to Indianapolis.

“I thought it was good to have a short turnaround,” Titans coach Mike Mularkey said. “It was a difficult loss we had against Indy. We had to get focused right on these guys immediately, especially with a prime-time game. We wanted to show what we’re capable of doing, show the country what we’re trying to do here.”
