    What a game!!! Miki1369
    The Jaguars traveled to Philadelphia and opened up the season with an OT thrilling win, 17-14.
    The game started off promising for the Jags when recently signed MLB Erin Henderson picked off a pass and brought it into Eagles territory. Jacksonville got into the red zone when rookie QB Blake Bortles threw an INT to Mychal Kendricks. Eagles would then drive down the field and end the possession with a rushing TD by LeSean McCoy. The half would end 7-0 Eagles.
    The Jaguars would receive the opening kick in the 2nd half and would take a 4 min drive the field that was capped off with a
    Ray Rice TD! The Eagles would come right back the next possession and march down the field and would score a TD when Nick Foles connected with Zach Ertz early in the 4th quarter to take a 14-7 lead. With 4 min left in the 4th quarter Bortles threw a strike to fellow rookie Marqise Lee who broke a tackle and scored a 28 yard TD to tie the game! The Jags would get another chance to win the game and drove down to the Eagles 36 yard line with 38 seconds left, they were stopped on 4th and short and had to go for the 53 yard field goal. Kicker Josh Scobee's kick just fell short of the game winner and we would head to OT. The Eagles got the opening kick and was quickly stopped helped by a Paul Posluszny a sack. The Jags would quickly drove down the field to the Eagles 29 yard line where Scobee would get a chance to redeem himself with a 46 yard field goal and he....................................NAILED IT, to win the game 17-14!!
