Up D.J. Hayden Jersey , down. Good, bad. Offensive inconsistency has become as much a part of the team’s identity as defensive proficiency under coach Doug Marrone. It’s Jacksonville’s biggest downfall and a main reason why many outsiders refuse to consider the Jaguars (2-1) a legitimate title contender in 2018.They reached another low Sunday, failing to score an offensive touchdown for the second time in two years, advancing past midfield just twice and losing 9-6 to AFC South rival Tennessee .Dropped passes, batted balls and penalties were part of the problem. So was Blake Bortles, who completed 21 of 34 passes for 155 yards and was sacked three times.The lackluster performance came one week after Jacksonville looked unbelievably smooth in a 31-20 victory against New England , a rematch of last season’s AFC championship game.More Jacksonville Jaguars newsJaguars hope newcomer RB Carlos Hyde helps Blake Bortles get back on trackJaguars will be without A.J. Bouye, 2 more cornerbacks against Eagles in LondonJaguars view annual game in London as key component of franchise’s growthDespite slump, Jaguars sticking with Blake Bortles as starting QBTempers flare in Jaguars’ locker room after lopsided loss to Texans“Is it head-scratching? Yeah, of course,” Marrone said. “Obviously, it’s not what you expect. … It’s not like it’s one thing or one set. It was a combination of really not playing well at all.”The Jaguars will try to bounce back against the New York Jets (1-2) on Sunday, wrapping up a three-game homestand.“We’ve got to find out and figure out how we’re going to handle it as a team,” Bortles said.Getting running back Leonard Fournette back would help. Fournette missed his second consecutive game with a strained right hamstring. He tweaked it in the season opener at the New York Giants and has missed 10 of 12 quarters.Fournette is the team’s offensive centerpiece https://www.jaguarsfanstore.com/Cody-Kessler-Jersey , a pounding runner who sets the tone for Marrone’s throwback style. The Jags managed to beat the Giants and Patriots without him, but needed a defensive touchdown to upend New York and the best game of Bortles’ five-year career to knock off New England.They never led against the Titans, falling behind after a failed fake punt early and giving up a game-winning drive late.“It definitely feels like a letdown,” Bortles said. “I don’t think there was anything carried over from last week or the previous two weeks. We try to treat it like a new start, a fresh start. … Kind of came out and offensively laid a goose egg. Score six points in four quarters is hard to do.”It was the franchise’s fewest points since a 30-6 loss to Houston in the 2015 season finale and its fewest at home since a 37-3 drubbing by Indianapolis in 2013.The Jaguars blamed the latest dud on matchup issues against the equally physical Titans, who have won three in a row and five of the last six in the series. But they also struggled to generate many yards and points against the Jets, Cleveland, Arizona and Buffalo in 2017 and against the Giants two weeks ago.“Very frustrating, but we’re not going to blame people,” Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey said.Not yet anyway. But in a season several players have dubbed Super Bowl-or-bust and with a defense that considers itself the best in the league , Jacksonville has potential for back-biting and finger-pointing.The Jaguars insist that won’t happen. Several defenders even spoke in the locker room after the loss and showed support for Bortles and the offense.“I’m confident this team will respond,” defensive end Calais Campbell said. “Losses suck. They always have; they always will. This one stings a little bit because it’s a division game at home. At the end of the day, it’s just one loss, and how we respond is really what it comes down to. I’m very confident this team will respond.” Jalen Ramsey backs up his big talk with big plays.Now the Jacksonville cornerback can crow about something else.Ramsey was the overwhelming choice as the NFL’s top cornerback by a panel of 10 football writers for The Associated Press. The All-Pro received eight first-place votes in balloting released Friday.“Big talent and a big mouth https://www.jaguarsfanstore.com ,” wrote New York-based lead NFL writer Barry Wilner. “Still, the guy can cover, isn’t afraid to hit, and likes to match up with the top receivers.”Marcus Peters of the Los Angeles Rams, last year’s top choice, was second and had the other two first-place votes, followed by Arizona’s Patrick Peterson.After helping the Jaguars reach the AFC championship game before losing to New England last season, Ramsey made headlines with his mouth.First, he ripped Buffalo quarterback Josh Allen as “trash” and called Atlanta’s Matt Ryan overrated in the same interview with GQ magazine . It was released a few days after he was suspended during training camp for screaming obscenities at reporters who were videotaping a post-practice altercation between defensive ends Dante Fowler and Yannick Ngakoue.It wasn’t the only time Ramsey was in the news in August. The third-year pro also dismissed four-time All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski of New England by telling ESPN The Magazine, “I don’t think Gronk is as great as people say he is.”Two weeks into this season, Ramsey said he would hit his grandmother if she were on the opposing team, along with other family members, while discussing his respect for the game. Asked if he really would hit his grandma, he said he “definitely would.”“Ramsey talks a big game Jacksonville Jaguars Customized Jerseys , but he backs it up with smart, physical play on the back end of arguably the league’s top defense,” wrote Dennis Waszak, another New York-based AP Football Writer.The Rams acquired Peters in the offseason after he intercepted 19 passes in three seasons with Kansas City. He was suspended for a game late last season by the Chiefs for throwing a penalty flag into the stands.The 25-year-old returned an interception 50 yards for a touchdown in a season-opening win over Oakland. Peters has been battling a calf injury.“He’s tough enough in coverage that he sometimes has to peel off to go pick off his own interceptions,” wrote Tennessee-based AP Football Writer Teresa Walker.Peterson has at least one interception in each of his eight seasons with Arizona. At the moment, it appears he will be a bright spot on a bad team with the Cardinals among three winless clubs. Peterson was second to Peters in a close vote last year.“For sheer talent, Peterson is the best all-around cornerback in the game,” Wilner wrote. “He gets little action in Arizona as the Cardinals struggle to get someone to clamp down the other side of the field.”Minnesota’s Xavier Rhodes was fourth, followed by Casey Hayward of the Los Angeles Chargers. Ramsey teammate A.J. Bouye was sixth, and Detroit’s Darius Slay was seventh.Chris Harris Jr., of Denver was eighth, one spot ahead of former teammate Aqib Talib, who is now with the Rams. Marshon Lattimore of New Orleans, last year’s NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year after intercepting five passes Jacksonville Jaguars T-Shirts , wrapped up the top 10.The rankings:1. Jalen Ramsey, Jacksonville2. Marcus Peters, LA Rams3. Patrick Peterson, Arizona4. Xavier Rhodes, Minnesota5. Casey Hayward, LA Chargers6. A.J. Bouye, Jacksonville7. Darius Slay, Detroit8. Chris Harris Jr., Denver9. Aqib Talib, LA Rams10. Marshon Lattimore, New Orleans___
