The sacks that ended Jaguars' chances

The Jaguars were down 4 points and had the ball at their own 27-yard line with all three of their timeouts Sunday at New Meadowlands Stadium against the Giants. They moved to the Giants’ 29-yard line before things fell apart.

“The end of the game we’re sitting there first and ten on their 29-yard line, all three time outs, just under two minutes and in perfect position to take that game back, really take it back, and just didn’t get it done,” Jack Del Rio told Jacksonville media Monday. “We certainly had many opportunities. There wasn’t any one play or one person that was the difference. I think it was simply a matter of not executing and taking advantage of some of those opportunities we had.”

Here is a closer look at back-to-back-to-back sacks of David Garrard that ended any chance for the Jaguars:
Said Garrard: “I just think we felt like we were going to be able to do fine with the pass game. We felt like they were playing a lot of single-high and they were bringing some blitzes. They brought a couple of blitzes that we hadn’t seen before. Really it was just up to us executing and picking our guys out, me getting the ball out of my hands. We didn’t do that and it showed.”
