Last Sunday in London, the Jacksonville Jaguars disappointed faithful fans that made the trek to Great Britan with their fourth consecutive loss.
The Jags fell to 3-5 on the season with the lost to the defending NFL champion, the Philadelphia Eagles. After the game, Coach Doug Marronewas asked the reason for the teams struggles. He said, “I think I have done a poor job communicating. I think my message; I’ve done a poor job of that. I think if anybody is going to look at the team and why the team is doing poorly, I think the first person they ought to look at is me.”
Sundays game marked the teams NFL-high sixth game in London, as Jacksonville is now 3-3 all-time at Wembley Stadium.
Jaguars were also in the news for a discrepancy regarding a London night club appearance where players were comped $64,000 in alcoholic beverages and left the club without paying. The bill was paid and Jaguars eventually were cleared for kick-off. Marrone informed reporters that there will be internal consequences for the four players involved in the incident in London. “There will be discipline taken. We will handle all of that internally. It is not a call to the principal’s office. They will be disciplined,” he said. Jaquars will now have their Bye Week before heading back on the road for a divisional matchup with Indianapolis on Nov. 11 (Week 10).
