"I think he took another good step," Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said, per the team's official website. "To go on the road and to stack up another good performance, he's learning. ...

Bortles drove the squad to three straight field goals on marches that went for 10, 10 and 12 plays apiece.

In his absence, wideout Allen Robinson continued to thrive with grabs of 20 and 36 yards.
