JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- It doesn't matter where the Jaguars play their games. EverBank Field, Seattle, St. Louis or across the Atlantic Ocean, the result is the same.

Sunday's 42-10 loss to San Francisco, played in London's Wembley Stadium, was just another typical Jaguars game, writes the Florida Times-Union's Ryan O'Halloran. The team can't stop the run, sack quarterbacks, finish drives, make big plays (offensively or defensively) or even keep games close.

"There's not much that can be said," said tight end Marcedes Lewis. "We never want to go out there and play like that. We didn't come all this way for that to happen. Obviously, we need to be better and we will be better."

The Jaguars certainly can't get much worse. They're 0-8, halfway to matching the 2008 Detroit Lions' mark for NFL futility (0-16).

Here are some additional pieces of Jaguars content from around the web in our daily Reading the Coverage feature:

The T-U's Hays Carlyon further documents how badly the Jaguars' defensive played. He also writes that Maurice Jones-Drew's improved play over the last four games is one of the positives the team has heading into its bye week.

O'Halloran reviews his four keys to the game in his Four Downs Analysis feature. Perhaps the biggest takeaway is how much the Jaguars continue to struggle in the red zone. He also writes about receiver Mike Brown's first NFL touchdown.

See how many London/British references you can find in the T-U's Monday Morning Quarterback feature.

T-U columnist Gene Frenette gave out failing grades to all but one unit in his report card. Frenette also writes that Sunday's loss exhibits just how far behind the NFL's elite teams the Jaguars are in terms of talent.

WJXT TV-4 sports director Sam Kouvaris and Cole Pepper talk about the game in London in a podcast. Pepper also wonders how much longer the players will respond to coach Gus Bradley without a victory.
