The Jacksonville Jaguars got blown out by the Los Angeles Rams in a Week 13 matchup that nobody expected to be close. They leave LA after losing 37-7 and dropping to 2-10 on the season. This was their fourth loss in a row.

This game was a complete domination by the Rams. The Jaguars never got much going on offense, as opposed to the Rams who seemed like they were playing a game of Madden with the difficulty set way too low.

It felt like Trevor Lawrence was pressured near constantly by the Rams’ imposing front and he never quite got comfortable in the pocket. He went 16 of 28 passing for 145 yards. He added 10 yards on the ground on four carries. He avoided throwing any interceptions or losing any fumbles which is actually quite impressive given how much time he spent running for his life.

James Robinson was questionable coming into today but did end up playing. He split carries with Carlos Hyde with each gaining 24 yards on the day. Hyde had nine carries compared to Robinson’s eight and he scored the only touchdown of the day for the Jaguars while Robinson went scoreless. Both players lost a fumble each.

The leading receiver for Jacksonville ended up being Laquon Treadwell, who registered four catches for 62 yards. The second highest yard total came from Laviska Shenault Jr., who had three catches for 30 yards.

The Rams, on the other hand, got touchdowns from three different receivers, they got one on the ground, and they kicked three field goals.

Matthew Stafford was 26 of 38 passing for 295 yards and three touchdowns. Cooper Kupp had eight catches for 129 yards and one touchdown. Van Jefferson had six catches for 41 yards and one touchdown. Odell Beckham Jr. also caught a touchdown as he had two catches for 28 yards. Tyler Higbee had a quietly good day as well, posting five catches for 48 yards.

Sony Michel got the start in place of the injured Darrell Henderson Jr., rushing 24 times for 121 yards and one touchdown. Matt Gay was 4/4 on extra-point attempts and 3/3 on field goals with a long of 44 yards.

In week 14 the Jaguars will be traveling to Tennessee to face the Titans. The Titans aren’t exactly world-beaters this season but it’s hard to imagine a scenario where the Jaguars win. This offense just doesn’t have enough weapons and the offensive line has too many holes.
