Welcome to Thursday Night Football my fellow Jaguars fans. It’s been quite awhile since the Jaguars have seen a prime-time game. Which is probably for the best, huh? I mean losing seven games in the first eight games of the season is rough enough; having all of America watch it with you is a completely different ball park.
Sure, all NFL fans know that Jacksonville is just one game away from being the worst team in the league. We don’t need to remind them with weekly blow-outs on prime-time football. Especially, if you remember that the Jaguars don’t exact “perform well” during these games.
In light of this TNF game, I was thinking about the Jaguars prior visits to the NFL network… which was not a good thing for me to be thinking about so early in the morning.
In the four games the Jaguars have played on Thursday night, they have won zero. 3 games, 3 losses.
Wait, it gets even better. In those 3 games the franchise has had 2 opponents… the Atlanta Falcons…. and you guessed it, the Indianapolis Colts. Meaning the Jaguars have NEVER won vs the Colts on a Thursday. There’s a first time for everything right?
In those 3 losses the Jaguars have lost to their opponents with a combined score of 107-69.
Here’s to hoping for a better turnout tonight… and for the first win of the home schedule!
