Bortles' outing not enough to take down Giants

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Blake Bortles had another impressive preseason outing for Jacksonville, leading the Jaguars to three field goals in his only drives in a 22-12 preseason loss to the New York Giants on Saturday night.

Bortles, who was 11 of 15 in a preseason opener, hit 8 of 16 passes for 98 yards. His chances for scoring touchdowns were hurt by poor offensive line play at times, a holding penalty in the red zone and a drop.

Josh Scobee capped the first drive for the Jaguars (1-1) with a 52-yard field goal and Jason Myers converted from 51 and 49 yards.

Eli Manning and the Giants (1-1) struggled for the second straight week, with the two-time Super Bowl MVP finishing 4 of 14 for 46 yards in three series. Odell Beckham Jr. was targeted five times, had no catches and one red-zone drop.
