Does anybody happen to know the team who played the Denver Broncos during the first half of last Sunday’s game?

I’m not sure what was going on, but I was pretty shocked. Denver came into the game as a 28 point favorite but only led the Jaguars by two points going into the second half of the game.

With Jacksonville’s passing game already hurting, both Cecil Shorts and Justin Blackmon are both listed as questionable for this Sunday’s game against the San Diego Chargers. The Jaguars are currently ranked 25th in passing offense with 209 yards per game, which is terrible.

Cecil Shorts currently leads the team in receiving yards with 411 yards on 31 receptions and one receiving touchdown. Blackmon had a huge game last weekend even though he didn’t get into the end zone as he brought in nearly 200 receiving yards on 14 receptions.

Blackmon is determined to play against San Diego, who is coming off a big win against the Indianapolis Colts this past Monday. With Shorts still dealing with a clavicle injury, Blackmon is going to have to continue to step up and be that big star receiver he has the potential to be.
