Second-year Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles is showing signs of progress only two games into the preseason. He completed 8-of-16 passes for 98 yards over three drives in Sunday’s game against the New York Giants.
“I think he took another good step,” Jacksonville coach Gus Bradley said. “To go on the road and to stack up another good performance, he’s learning. … What I’m pleased about is he’s seeing some benefits of playing some pretty consistent quarterback. We just need to add to it.”
Bortles led the Jaguars to three field goals on three drives of 10 plays or more in the loss to the Giants. The young passer’s development is a good sign for Jaguars fans and a bad one for opposing teams.
