Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert threw two interceptions that were returned for touchdowns and also lost a fumble in Bears territory during the team's 41-3 loss to Chicago on Sunday. The fumble came late in the first half and deprived the Jaguars of a scoring opportunity, and they went into halftime tied at three with the Bears.

In the second half, it was Gabbert's two pick-sixes that helped fuel Chicago's 38-point outburst, which turned the game into a blowout. He finished the day 17-of-33 for 142 yards with no touchdowns -- and his 37.7 passer rating was his worst mark of the season.

Overall, Gabbert's numbers are still better than they were during his rookie campaign in 2011. He is on track to set better marks in completion percentage, passer rating and touchdown-to-interception ratio.

The Jaguars fell to 1-4 on the season with Sunday's loss, and they have a bye in Week 6. They'll return to the field against the Oakland Raiders in Week 7.
