Bortles completed 32 of 49 passes for 265 yards and two touchdowns Sunday.

The Jaguars snapped a couple of significant streaks early to take an early lead.
Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles will be providing 500 preregistered boys and girls the experience of a lifetime at the inaugural Blake Bortles JaxPAL Football Camp. The camp will be held at the Police Athletic League of Jacksonville, Inc. (JaxPAL) football fields in Ed Austin Regional Park, located at 3450 Monument Road, on June 11 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
“Blake will be our starting quarterback,” Marrone said Monday during a news conference in which both he and Caldwell discussed a variety of issues.
Caldwell, who drafted Bortles No. 3 overall in the 2014 NFL Draft, said the Jaguars’ next head coach will not have a “mandate” that Bortles remain the starter.
“There won’t be any mandates for anybody who comes in,” Caldwell said. “There are no untouchables for anybody in this organization, including myself. Regardless of how people got here, they have to live up to their abilities.”
Caldwell added that he still believed in Bortles.
“I don’t see anything in the future that shows that Blake Bortles is not our guy,” Bradley said Monday, a day after Bortles committed two turnovers in a 24-21 loss to the Houston Texans at EverBank Field.
Bradley added, “I have great confidence in him. I think I speak for everybody that we have great confidence in him.
Bortles completed 32 of 49 passes for 265 yards and two touchdowns Sunday, but his first-drive interception was returned for a 42-yard touchdown by cornerback Kareem Jackson. That gave the Texans a 7-0 lead. Although the Jaguars tied the game 7-7 when Bortles threw five yards to tight end Julius Thomas on the ensuing possession, the Jaguars never led Sunday.

Hackett specifically was referring to Bortles’ on-field toughness.
Bortles was the NFL’s most-sacked quarterback in his first two seasons, being sacked 55 times in 2014 and 51 last season. That number has improved dramatically this season with the Jaguars allowing just 28 sacks, but Bortles was sacked four times by Minnesota last Sunday.
Despite that pressure, Bortles completed 23 of 37 passes for 257 yards and a touchdown and Jacksonville Jaguars jersey authentic did not throw an interception for the third time this season.
Bortles, who has thrown nine touchdown passes and nine interceptions this season after a 35-18 touchdown-interception ratio last season, completed 23 of 43 passes for 246 yards and a touchdown with two interceptions in a 33-16 loss to the Raiders at EverBank Field Sunday.
Tight end Ben Koyack fell on a muffed punt at the Lions 11 late in the first quarter. That gave the Jaguars a takeaway for the first time since the first quarter of a Week 4 victory over Indianapolis in London.
There’s no law that says it has to be either Julius Thomas or Ben Koyack at tight end for the Jaguars next season; it’s not as if the two can’t co-exist. If I had to guess, though, I would say Thomas won’t be back next season and that Koyack will return. That’s the thought now. Check back when a new head coach is hired. His thoughts will change many things.
Myers converted a 27-yard field goal three plays later. The 3-0 lead was the Jaguars’ first since the end of a 17-16 victory over Chicago in Week 6, a span of more than five games.
