The Jacksonville Jaguars fell to 3-7 on the year after losing 14-10 to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday afternoon. The Jaguars had an opportunity to win the game as time expired but a Blain Gabbert pass to Mike Thomas fell incomplete in the end zone. The Browns gave the Jags plenty of opportunities to win in on their final drive but the Jags, who have the fewest red zone touchdowns in the league, were unable to convert.
The Browns gave Jacksonville a first down on fourth and one when Cleveland defensive tackle Phil Taylor jumpedoffsides. Later in the drive, Jacksonville moved the ball inside Cleveland's 30 after a Joe Haden pass interference call. The Jags would move the ball to the five yard line, but wasted valuable time after two Maurice Jones-Drew runs put them just a yard short of the winning touchdown. With 8 seconds left, Gabbert's two incompletions would stall the drive at the one yard line and end the game.
The go-ahead opportunity was set up by a Phil Dawson missed field goal for Cleveland. The ball appeared to go over the top of the upright and was definitely a toss-up call, but the referees ruled in Jacksonville's favor, giving the Jags the ball back with a chance to win it. But Gabbert would come up short. The rookie QB finished 22 of 41 with 210 yards on the day. He managed the game nicely again and avoided the big mistake, throwing no interceptions. The Browns, however, were led by third string running back Chris Ogbonnaya who rushed for 115 yards in the win.
