Could the Jaguars have a new starting QB this season?

The Jacksonville Jaguars drafted Blake Bortles with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Since then, he's been given every opportunity to succeed in Jacksonville.

In his first few seasons, Blake Bortles has struggled with accuracy issues.

After an awful performance on Thursday night, he may have finally lost the starting job.

After the game, head coach Doug Marrone said the starting QB job was now an open competition.

It's not surprising, especially after Bortles struggled and backup quarterback Chad Henne looked solid. It's been a tough road for Bortles, but it looks like the starting job is starting to slip through his grasp.
