What happened Sunday in Jacksonville won’t happen again

Sunday was bad. Really bad. Did it signal a sea change in the AFC — an AFsea change, if you will?

Probably not. 

Here’s the logic: As you’ve probably been reminded roughly 7,000 times since the Jaguars wrapped up their 31-20 win over the Patriots Sunday evening, Bill Belichick teams get better over the course of the year. They have at least one bad early season loss, then the defense gets better over time to the point where it’s good enough in the Super Bowl, provided you don’t sit the star cornerback. 

For as troubling as Sunday looked, you can be confident enough in that improvement happening again to the point where the defense will look a heck of a lot better if and when these teams meet in the playoffs. 

What you can’t be as confident in is that Blake Bortles will do that again. 

Bortles is fine. He’s not great, and that gets him a lot of attention because a lot of other parts of that team are. On Sunday, the only time the Patriots touched him was when they seemingly put a gold jacket on him at the end of the first half. When all was said and done, the fifth-year QB had gone for 377 yards with four touchdowns and a pick.
