BORTLES BENCHED ON SUNDAY
Blake Bortles had never been benched in a game during the regular season. That changed after he lost his second fumble while scrambling up the middle on third-and-7 from the Jaguars’ 4-yard line.
Two plays later, Houston quarterback Deshaun Watson found receiver DeAndre Hopkins for a 10-yard touchdown to put the Texans up 20-0.
As Jacksonville.com columnist Phillip Heilman wrote, "It might as well have been 200-0."
The Jags could never rebound and would go on to lose 20-7. Cody Kessler was put in to save the day, but it was too little too late, Kessler did finish the game 21-31 for 156 yards, one TD, and one pick.
The question is, this is the end of Blake in Jacksonville? Or are the Jags stuck with him because of the 3 year 55 million dollar contract he signed in the offseason? What do you think comes from this turbulent QB play in Jacksonville as the Super Bowl contending Jags ride a 4 game losing streak?
