Blake Bortles - Sunday, November 18

(On what he thought about the final third-and-five play) "It's situational football with the way we'd been running the ball all day and the confidence that we've got in Leonard (Fournette) and the guys up front and the rest of our backs. I have no problem with that call, as far as making them use a time out. That's situational football there."

(On why the Jaguars were able to have success running the ball early in the game but not late) "I'm not sure, we'll have to take a look at it. It got rolling early and I thought I got Leonard [Fournette], Carlos [Hyde] and T.J. [Yeldon], I thought they all ran hard, and the receivers did well and we were rolling early. At the end of the third quarter, it kind of slowed down and stalled out towards the end of the game and that's part of it and you get in those situations and you run the ball and try to run out the clock and all you need is a first down or two to make them burn their timeouts. We work on it every week, as far as our four-minute offense and we weren't able to close it out."

(On his thoughts on an emotional loss) "It's tough. It's tough anytime you lose, and none of them are fun, but it's tough. There are six games left, so we have to line up and go play six games."
