Reprieve lets Jags end road skid at 13

BALTIMORE — The clock was at 0:00, and Blake Bortles was on the ground. At that point, for the Jaguars to break their horrid road losing streak, they needed a miracle.

"Call it what you want," Bortles said later. "Whatever. It happens."

Bortles rose and was grabbed by Baltimore linebacker Elvis Dumervil, who snagged the quarterback's facemask while dragging him to the ground. That gave Jacksonville 15 yards and one free play, and Jason Myers hit a 53-yard field goal to win it for Jacksonville.

Jacksonville had lost 13 in a row on the road since winning at Cleveland on Dec. 1, 2013. After moving to the Baltimore 49, Bortles got collared by Dumervil after time expired. Because a game can't end on a penalty by the defense, the Jaguars got the ball at the 35.

"I take full responsibility for that one," Dumvervil said. "It can't happen."
