Jaguars WRs dropped 9 passes Sunday

Drops plagued the Jacksonville offense against Green Bay.

Jacksonville Jaguars receivers dropped nine passes during their 24-15 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. Head coach Mike Mularkey has implored his team to improve its execution, and on Monday he equated the drops to missed layups.

"Layups, not three pointers that we’re missing just layups. Nine drops yesterday. Those are layups," Mularkey said. "Those are things we’ve got to be able to put the ball in the basket if we want to use the basketball as correlation to what we’re doing here."

Despite the miscues by the receiving corps, quarterback Blaine Gabbert passed for 303 yards and connected on a touchdown pass. It was his highest yardage total of the season, and just the second time he eclipsed 200 yards passing in 2012. Thanks in part to Gabbert's efforts, Jacksonville outgained Green Bay by more than 100 yards.

The Jaguars return to the field this weekend to host the Detroit Lions.
