Seattle became the latest club to do it, and they weren't thrilled with the feeling of Sunday's 30-24 defeat in Jacksonville.
The Seahawks fought back from a 27-10 deficit with another dose of fourth-quarter magic from quarterback Russell Wilson, who dialed up a pair of long touchdown strikes to keep his team alive. This time, though, it wasn't enough as Bortles countered with mistake-free football to pass for 268 yards and two big-time scoring throws of his own against a banged-up Seahawks defense.
The win moved Jacksonville to 9-4 on the year -- all alone atop the AFC South -- a newfound view for this longtime punching bag.
Said defensive lineman Malik Jackson: "I came here to the Jaguars at the perfect time. I saw it when it was ugly to where we are now."
Record aside, this team looms as a massive headache for opponents when Bortles is staying away from game-crushing errors. Toss in one of the better defenses we've seen in many moons and Jacksonville has the chance to do much more than frustrate Seattle down the stretch.
