Jacksonville entered Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans as a seven-point favorite, the largest spread in favor of the Jaguars in recent memory.

When the final buzzer sounded, it was the Jaguars who were down 7, a demoralizing 13-6 loss on a day when the team was honoring its first Hall of Famer, Tony Boselli.

At 2-3, all is not lost for the Jaguars, but they are certainly a tough team.

After a tough Week 1 loss to the Washington Commanders, the Jaguars completely dominated the Indianapolis Colts and Los Angeles Chargers.

They then came up big against the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles, but squandered a 14-0 lead and lost on a cold, rainy day.

While that loss was tough to swallow, the elements were certainly a factor in quarterback Trevor Lawrence losing four fumbles. It didn’t help that Miles Sanders ran for 134 yards and two touchdowns.

Explaining the loss to the Texans is much more difficult.

Houston entered the game as the NFL’s only winless team, with a one-dimensional offense comprised of running back Dameon Pierce.

Even knowing what Houston would do, the Jaguars couldn’t stop Pierce. He rushed for 99 yards and the only touchdown of the game.

This week, the Jaguars travel to Indianapolis for the second time this season to play the Colts. This is a division win that a team needs to have.
