Wrap-up: Chiefs 42, Jaguars 20
By Paul Kuharsky
Wrapping up Jacksonville's 42-20 loss against Kansas City.
What it means: They hung tough for a while, but the Jaguars ultimately dropped to 3-4 and remain at the bottom of the AFC South, behind the Titans (5-2), Texans (4-2) and Colts (4-2).
What I didn’t like: Operating in a tough situation, Todd Bouman actually gave the Jaguars a chance, but his interception to Derrick Johnson for a touchdown was a back-breaker. The defense might have been more disappointing, allowing 236 rushing yards, two Dwayne Bowe touchdown catches and four touchdowns in four Kansas City red-zone chances.
What I didn’t like, Part II: Matt Cassel was hardly stellar, but the Jaguars allowed him to put together the sort of limited-mistake effort the Chiefs needed to win. He was sacked only once, threw two touchdowns and no interceptions while posting a 144.0 passer rating.
What’s next: The Jaguars travel to Dallas for their second game of the season against an NFC East opponent.
