The Jacksonville Jaguars were supposed to be one of the top teams in the NFL this season. Instead, they seem to be imploding.
After starting 3-1, the Jags have dropped three in a row. Today, they got shut down by the Houston Texans, losing 20-7 in a game in which starting quarterback Blake Bortles was benched.
After the game, there were apparently some fireworks in the locker room. According to Jaguars beat writer Daniel Popper, defensive lineman Yannick Ngakoue had to be restrained by teammate Calais Campbell.
It is unclear who Ngakoue was attempting to go after.
According to another writer, Zach Goodall, Ngakoue got into it with a coach during the game as well.
Things are not going to get easier for the Jags. They have to travel to London next week to take on the Philadelphia Eagles, who are dealing with their own problems.
The Eagles are just 3-4 after blowing a 17-0 lead today to the Carolina Panthers. Not the way the defending Super Bowl champs wanted this year to go.
The best hope for the Jaguars is the fact that the AFC South is bad once again. The Houston Texans lead the division with a 4-3 record, which is incredible considering they started 0-3 and looked awful doing so.
