Jacksonville scored first but ultimately less often than Philadelphia in their contest on Sunday. Jacksonville were within striking distance but couldn't close the gap, as they fell 18-24 to Philadelphia. Jacksonville's loss continues a disappointing trend for the team, making it four losses in a row.
Jacksonville's defeat came about despite a quality game from Blake Bortles, who accumulated 286 passing yards and picked up 43 yards on the ground on 8 carries. The Jacksonville defense stepped up as well to lay out the quarterback four times.
Carson Wentz was the offensive standout of the match for Philadelphia, as he passed for 286 yards and 3 touchdowns. If you haven't heard Wentz's name lately, then you haven't been paying much attention: he has loomed large in their past six games.
Jacksonville will square off against Indianapolis at 2:00 p.m. in two weeks. Those two teams will be looking to wash their mouths of the bitter taste of defeat when they meet up. Philadelphia will have some time to rest before their next game, which is against Dallas at 9:20 p.m. If the 0-6 final from the last time they met is any indication, this match will be decided by the defense.
