They never really picked up the pace after getting off to a slow start.
When you faced them, it was disastrous.
Trevor Lawrence failed to mount a spectacular comeback, benched five times, and threw two interceptions. The defense allowed touchdowns to be scored on both sides of the field.Many things happened after the Jaguars’ 34-3 loss to the 49ers on Sunday afternoon at EverBank Stadium went wrong and chaos ensued.
“We need to see things clearly in the mirror and figure some things out,” stated Doug Pederson, head coach of the Jaguars.
The famous Jacksonville Jaguars (6-3) of the AFC South saw their five-game winning streak come to an end with this loss. The NFC West’s 49ers (6-3) ended a three-game losing run.
Jaguars linebacker Foye Oluokun stated, “We know what kind of team we can be.” ‘After our bye week last week, we ought to have been primed to go, but the NFL brings you low.
It matters how the season is concluded. Let’s complete it correctly.
The third-year quarterback for the Jaguars, Lawrence, completed 17 of his 29 passes for 185 yards and no touchdowns. In all, the Jaguars turned the ball over four times, and Christian Kirk, their wide receiver, struggled for the third straight game.
“It was one of the worst games I have ever played,” stated Lawrence.
“I believe you must experience the suffering and humiliation of this day,” he uttered. “I accept responsibility for how I feel.”
Pederson described losing a loved one as “humbling.”
“No one desires to coach in that manner.” It’s not how anyone wants to play. Nobody desires such a defeat. You know, it’s really embarrassing.
The Jaguars scored their fewest points at home since a 27-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 11 of 2020 and their fewest points since a 20-0 loss to the Tennessee Titans in Week 14 of 2021. They made four mistakes.
“We performed appallingly in every aspect,” stated Lawrence. That is the actuality. We’re going to check the tape tomorrow, flush it, and move on.
On the 49ers’ opening drive of the game, quarterback Brock Purdy found wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk for a touchdown pass. Running back George Kittle cashed in a valiant touchdown reception to cap the third quarter and put San Francisco ahead 13-0.
After their first two drives, the 49ers led 10-0, and in the last minutes of the third quarter, wide receiver Deebo Samuel added a reverse touchdown.
The Jaguars, who had a 6-2 record going into the game after a defeat, were still having trouble with turnovers. They are now 0-2 on the season and have only managed two shutouts in the last three weeks, both of which Oluokun recorded. They are not forced to turn it over on downs.
‘This is not a football team that wants to stay where we are, so let’s go fight,’ Oluokun declared. Let’s improve. Our next opponent is the Tennessee Titans of the AFC South, who should be a formidable foe. I am prepared to work.
Step by Step – 49ers
The 49ers gained early momentum and forced the Jaguars to punt on their opening play. They then went on four consecutive 57-yard scoring drives, capping the score at 7-0 when Purdy found Aiyuk for a 13-yard gain with 11:34 remaining in the first quarter. The 49ers scored on both of the Jaguars’ opening two possessions because they were unable to secure a first down on either play.
