Third-quarter blog: Jaguars 10, Panthers 8

The Jaguars opened the second half by staying on the ground. That worked for a while on their opening drive (picking up three first downs on eight consecutive runs), but quarterback Blaine Gabbert fumbled a snap (recovered by the Jaguars) and Deji Karim was stopped for a 6-yard loss.

The Panthers caught a break when Jaguars punter Matt Turk mishandled a snap later in the quarter. He picked the ball up but was brought down by Carolina's Richie Brockel at the Jaguars 38. The Panthers could only manage a 32-yard field goal from Olindo Mare out of it, however, and trailed 10-8 with 2:18 left in the third quarter.

And that's how the quarter ended, Jacksonville 10-8. -- David Scott

Buter fingers Gabbert,why doesnt the secondary ever look back for the ball-to many chances to swat away the ball or intercept, Play calling pathetic run Jones-drew into the stack over and over again, Send numer 75 packing, teach people how to tackle- arm takeling doesn't work.
