17-7 at the half

Although the Broncos were able to tie the Jaguars earlier in the second quarter the Jaguars mounted another long drive continuing to establish the run game and control the game clock; two of Jack Del Rio’s biggest goals. The Jaguars have already rushed for 100 yards against the Broncos while the past two games combined only equaled 188 yards.

A Greg Jones 4 yard rush put the Jaguars up 14-7 with less than two minutes remaining in the half. As the Broncos offense came on the field for only the third time of the game the Jaguars defense weren’t about to allow another quick march down the field recovering a Selvin Young fumble.

That fumble allowed the Jaguars to expand their lead with a 19-yard field goal putting them up 17-7 going into halftime. That field goal was forced after the Jaguars spiked the ball on third down from the one after a declined Denver penalty.

How do you think the Jaguars are performing so far this half? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
