Yes, last week was a terrific win for the Jaguars, but there were some real concerns about how the defense played once it went up 21-0. It didn’t seemed to go into a shell, perhaps Ben Roethlisberger was just willing the Steelers back into the game, but it was hardly a stellar performance. Roethlisberger threw for 469 yards and five touchdowns, with only one pick, against the Jaguars’ defense. Getting a 21-0 lead is significant, that shouldn’t be downplayed, but giving one up is as well.
When you watch them play over the course of the whole season, you can see why. There is not a lot of time for the quarterback to throw, and I think the whole secondary knows it. The linebackers know it. And they’re aggressive. They take chances. They get a lot of turnovers. They got a really good scheme, and the quarterback is just under pressure all day. Unless you get opened very quickly, there’s a lot of sacks and sacks turns into long yardage and long yardage turns into punts.
And one play in particular stood out to people, as the Jags might have been robbed of a touchdown thanks to an early whistle after Myles Jack robbed Dion Lewis of the ball following a wild Patriots offensive play.

Instead, the officials blew the whistle — it was admittedly a difficult call to really break down because of the speed with which Jack made the play — on a situation where they ruled that Lewis Chicago Cubs Jersey fumbled the ball and Jack recovered. If you rule a fumble and a recovery, you shouldn’t blow the whistle to stop the play.
Not helping matters? The officials were seen kind of being enthusiastic with the Patriots following the New England victory. This legitimately set some people off on social media.
