The Jacksonville Jaguars failed to get their first win of the season in Houston on Sunday against their AFC South rivals, the Texans.
The Jaguars were down 3-0 early, in large part because of a suspect first-down conversion catch by Houston’s DeAndre Hopkins.Jacksonville cornerback Jalen Ramsey believed the 3-yard catch by Hopkins on third-and-2 was a drop; Ramsey was in coverage on the play so he probably knew better than anyone if that was the case.
The Texans, apparently suspecting the drop, smartly got back to the line of scrimmage quickly and snapped the next play, another pass to Hopkins, before the Jaguars could challenge.
Seven plays later, the Texans got a 39-yard field goal from Ka’imi Fairbairn to score first.
Ramsey wasn’t happy about coach Doug Marrone not throwing his challenge flag, and let him know as he came off the field. Ramsey was pulled away by another member of the coaching staff, but Marrone went back to the bench to confront Ramsey.
Good times for the Jaguars, who lost 13-12 to fall 0-2 on the season.
Ramsey did not speak to media after the game, and Marrone said he couldn’t recall what happened that led to the sideline spat.
“It’s a lot of emotion on that field,” Marrone said.
