The Jacksonville Jaguars got exposed on a national stage by a team that ranked in the bottom five of the NFL in points scored and points per game and who scored 40 points for the first time in nearly a calendar year. The Cowboys embarrassed the Jags, 40-7 Sunday, marking their most lopsided loss in three years. The past two games have been deplorable for an elite defense, allowing 44 points in the first half of their last two games after allowing a league-low 12 in the first half of their first four games.
Jalen Ramsey, whose incessant trash talk this offseason and beyond has been excused under the “he can back it up” loophole, is at an utter loss for words. After Ramsey finished with four tackles and one pass defended and Blake Bortles completed just three passes that traveled 10 or more yards beyond the line of scrimmage, Ramsey gave the “I don’t know” treatment to a slew of reporters staked out at his locker.
It also should be noted that before the season, Ramsey said this of Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott:
“Dak Prescott, he’s good. He’s all right. He’s OK. I’ll put it that way,” Ramsey told GQ‘s Clay Skipper in August, adding that running back Ezekiel Elliott “runs that team though. Everything runs around Zeke.”
Prescott finished with a 107.5 passer rating while also rushing for 82 yards, the second most rushing yards by a quarterback in team history.
The world wide web took notice.
