After their impressive win in Patriots territory last night, the Jaguars showed that their team is looking to win this season. Yes, it was just a preseason game. Although preseason games are meant to look at the depth for each team.
With this team under new control of Doug Marrone and Tom Coughlin, this team should be more disciplined. With the backups and rookies doing well in this game, now they should be expected to do well against others, considering that they beat the team coach by Bill Belichick.

Chad Henne did really impressive at quarterback along with Brandon Allen. With the emergence for Corey Grant at running back, we could see him have an increase in playing time if he continues to play hard. Leonard Fournette didn’t exactly have a dominating debut but he did find the endzone in his first game.
The defense itself did well containing Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brisett. They did allow 24 points, but against a tough and physical Patriots offense who sometimes score more points. The defense didn’t make mental errors and played Jaguars football.
Overall, this Jaguars team shows sign of potential for this season. I know it’s only one game and it won’t count in a couple weeks but if the depth can handle the Patriots backups, then they should be able to handle other teams’ backups as well. We will see how they handle the Buccaneers next Thursday and see if they can handle them as well.
