RTC: Mistakes doom Jaguars

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jaguars missed tackles, gave up a ton of rushing yards and turned the ball over four times. But as poorly as they played during Sunday's 27-20 loss to Buffalo at EverBank Field, it wasn't reminiscent of the first eight games of the season.

The Jaguars had a chance to beat the Bills -- and they should have beaten the Bills -- but made too many mistakes and had their winning streak stopped at three games, writes Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.

"It was a game of missed opportunities," coach Gus Bradley said. "We had some opportunities in the game to capture and we didn't play like we're capable of playing."

The Jaguars were down four starters and one key reserve by halftime, but that's not an excuse for throwing two interceptions, fumbling the ball through the end zone and giving up 198 yards rushing.

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

Running back Jordan Todman, subbing for the injured Maurice Jones-Drew, played a solid game and ran for 109 yards in his first career start, writes the T-U's Vito Stellino.

Safety Winston Guy, subbing for the injured Johnathan Cyprien, also stepped up with a sack and forced fumble, writes the T-U's Hays Carlyon.

Running back Denard Robinson had a game he'd like to forget.

T-U columnist Gene Frenette's report card gives the offense average marks and also writes that it wouldn't be fair to pin the Jaguars' loss entirely on quarterback Chad Henne.

O'Halloran reviews how well the Jaguars stuck to his keys to the game in his Four Downs Analysis.

Here's the T-U's Monday Morning Quarterback, in which fans sound off about the loss.

Former Jaguars quarterback Mark Brunell was inducted into the Pride of the Jaguars at halftime on Sunday.

From this blog: turnover woes return and Todman proved he can be a big part of the Jaguars' run game next season.
