The Jaguars fell to 1-4 on the season after losing to the Bears, 41-3. The two teams were tied 3-3 at the half before Chicago broke out for a 38-point second half, which was aided by a pair of interceptions returned for touchdowns. Jacksonville quarterback Blaine Gabbert finished the day 17-for-33 for 142 yards with those two interceptions, which were taken for scores by Charles Tillman and Lance Briggs. The Jaguars' offense has scored a total of 13 points over the last two weeks.

Jacksonville is off in Week 6, and it will hit the road to face the Oakland Raiders in Week 7.
