Fantasy 5: Blake Bortles leaving a lot to be desired

"I'm looking for someone who is going to lead this offense", Marrone said. Quarterback Blake Bortles threw for 3,905 yards and 23 touchdowns against 16 interceptions last season.

He will have two more preseason games to evaluate his internal candidates.

The good news is that Winston did well in his preseason reps, completing 9 of 13 passes for 99 yards.

The frustration with Blake Bortles has been leaking out, both on the field and off it, first with cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who took a passive-aggressive Instagram shot. The 2016 sixth round pick hasn't done anything to show the world he's the next Tom Brady, but if the 2017 season is a lost cause, why not see what you have in Allen, even if Doug Marrone is anxious about putting this much faith in a QB with no first team snaps?

The Jaguars' faltered throughout the first three quarters until third-string quarterback Brandon Allen entered the game.

The Jaguars opened their preseason with a 31-24 win over the New England Patriots, thanks to a handful of massive plays from their second-teamers. During his time on offense, the Jaguars earned just three first downs with one coming from a penalty. Tampa Bay finished with a 240-59 advantage in total yards in the first half.

He misfired to Allen Robinson twice Thursday, including a woefully underthrown pass down the seam that drew boos from the home crowd and caused some head-shaking on the sideline.

Meanwhile, Tampa Bay's kicking woes continued as Nick Folk, the presumed victor of the kicking battle against recently released Roberto Aguayo, had his extra point attempt blocked and later missed a 47-yard field goal to finish 2-3 on field goal attempts. Let's focus on the defensive front, though, because that was supposed to be one of the defense's strengths. Winston looked far more settled and in control in this game.

There was the goal-line play on the Buccaneers' opening drive and tackle Malik Jackson shot the gap but Buccaneers left guard Kevin Pamphile caught him from an angle and plowed him to the ground as running back Doug Martin scored on a 2-yard run around left end after beating linebacker Telvin Smith to the end zone.
