EAST RUTHERFORD Womens James Conner Jersey , N.J. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars are going to have to play a lot better if they are going to beat the New England Patriots in the rematch of the AFC title game next weekend.

The opening weekend was ugly. Loads of penalties. Offensive struggles. A hamstring injury to leading rusher Leonard Fournette, and a near meltdown by the vaunted defense after linebacker Myles Jack gave Jacksonville a 20-9 lead with a 32-yard interception return early in the fourth quarter.

For now, the Jaguars will settle for a 20-15 season-opening victory over the Giants on Sunday that spoiled the New York debuts of coach Pat Shurmur and halfback Saquon Barkley and the return of star receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

“We were talking about it in the locker room,” said quarterback Blake Bortles , who threw a short touchdown pass and helped Jacksonville take a 13-6 halftime lead. “You never really know how Week 1 is going to go. You have an idea. You know you’ve been going against a pretty good defense all camp and all preseason long. But to come out and find a way to win when you didn’t have your ‘A’ game as an offense, I think it’s pretty special.”

The Jaguars won because their defense, which scored seven touchdowns last season, carried them. It limited New York to three field goals and stopped a late drive after Beckham caught passes of 21 and 19 yards to help the Giants reach the Jacksonville 36.

However, the Jaguars held, unlike in the AFC title game, when the Patriots scored the final 14 points to advance to the Super Bowl.

If there was a negative, it was giving up a 68-yard touchdown run to Barkley less than a minute after Jack scored. The rookie finished with 106 yards on 18 carries.

Still, the win gave Jacksonville a positive note ahead of a home matchup with New England, which beat the Houston Texans 27-20.

Jack, who scored on a pass tipped by Abry Jones Ryan Kesler Jersey , is looking forward to it.

“It’s definitely on my mind. As soon as that clock hit double zero, I was already thinking about New England,” he said. “I can’t wait for that game, and I’m looking forward to Jacksonville being out there.”

Coming off a 3-13 season, the Giants refused to take solace in a good effort, not with a game at Dallas next weekend.

“It’s disappointing when you lose,” Shurmur said. “The one good thing is our team fought from the front to the back. They fought all the way through the game. Unfortunately as is the case in a lot of these games that are close, we just didn’t make enough plays.”

Here’s some things we learned in the Jaguars win:

O-LINE WOES: The Giants offense line remains a work in progress. The revamped group needs to give Eli Manning (23 of 37 for 224) time to find his talented receivers and open holes for Barkley.

Facing a tough pass defense, Manning spent most of the game hitting short passes. There wasn’t much time to look downfield.

Ereck Flowers didn’t have a smooth transition going from left to right tackle. He was whistled for a tripping call and a hold on the opening drive. Left tackle Nate Solder also picked up a holding call.

TOO MANY FLAGS: The Jaguars biggest problem was penalties. They were called 11 times for 119 yards.

“We know that we can be better than that,” coach Doug Marrone said. “At the end of day, we were able to get the win. If you keep on that track, that stuff will bite you.”

BECKHAM BACK: Stop worrying about the left ankle Beckham broke in October. In his first game in almost 11 months, the NFL’s top-paid receiver was the best player on the field. He caught 11 passes for 111 yards and drew two pass interference penalties late in the first half to set up a field goal.

“Just being out there and competing with the best, I wish we would have gotten a win, but at the same time it’s a good starting point for our team Patrik Laine Jersey ,” Beckham said.

INJURIES: Marrone wasn’t concerned about Fournette, who finished with nine carries for 41. Backup T.J. Yeldin led the team with 14 carries for 51 yards and Bortles had four for 42. Jacksonville rushed for 137 yards.

“He’s had it before, he knows how to treat it,” Marrone said of Fournette. “That makes things pretty optimistic, which normally I’m not that optimistic.”

GIANTS NEW DEE: Coordinator James Bettcher’s 3-4 scheme limited the Jaguars to 305 yards, including 121 in the second half. Janoris Jenkins had an interception and the Jags tight ends and receivers combined for 12 catches, with only two plays being 20 or more yards.
Julio Jones remains in coach Dan Quinn’s good graces even after missing the opening day of the Atlanta Falcons‘ mandatory minicamp.

Quinn said Tuesday he thought Jones, who missed voluntary offseason workouts , would participate in the minicamp. The coach said he found out Monday that Jones would skip the minicamp.

Quinn wouldn’t share details of his conversation with Jones but said ”Sometimes football and business intersect and that’s OK and that happens a lot.”

Jones has three years remaining on his five-year, $71.3 million deal with $47 million in guaranteed money but could soon have the deal tweaked. Quinn said the team is ”right in the middle” of talks with Jones, a five-time Pro Bowl selection.

Quinn has emphasized ”brotherhood” and making sure players do everything as a team. Players stood together as a team on the sideline during the national anthem for all games after two players kneeled in protest early in the 2017 season.

Could Jones’ absence hurt the Falcons’ unity?

”No,” Quinn said. ”I recognize the question, for sure. Do we want everybody here all the time? Hell yeah, like all the time. … What I’d say is if you ask to a man, the guy is a hell of a teammate and the time he spends here Womens Joe Flacco Jersey , the way he mentors people, how hard he plays, there is plenty of brotherhood in Julio.”

Receiver Mohamed Sanu said he and other players were not impacted by Jones’ absence.

”Whether he’s present or not, we were just focused on what we have to do today,” said Sanu, the team’s No. 2 receiver behind Jones.

Jones, 29, remains one of the league’s top receivers. He earned his fourth straight Pro Bowl berth last season when he had 88 catches for 1,444 yards. It was his fourth straight season with at least 80 receptions and 1,400 receiving yards.

Jones’ salary cap figure of $12.9 million for 2018 ranks seventh among NFL receivers, well behind recent deals signed by Tampa Bay’s Mike Evans ($18.252 million in 2018) and Cleveland’s Jarvis Landry ($15.5 million).

Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said Monday he has been in talks with Jones and Jones’ agent, Jimmy Sexton.

Sexton did not return a message from The Associated Press.

Jones’ holdout comes after the Falcons made quarterback Matt Ryan the league’s top-paid player this offseason with a five-year extension that could be worth $150 million.

Quinn said he was not disappointed in Jones’ decision to miss minicamp because Jones remained in constant communication and explained why his plans changed.

”Sometimes circumstances change and as long as players communicate with me on why circumstances change, then I never am disappointed as long as communication with me is very clear,” Quinn said. ”… The things that jam me up are when people don’t communicate.”

Quinn wouldn’t say if Jones will be fined for missing the first day of the three-day minicamp.

Without Jones on the field, Ryan’s top targets included Sanu Sergei Boikov Jersey , rookie first-round pick Calvin Ridley and Justin Hardy. Like Jones, Ridley played at Alabama.

An undrafted rookie, Christian Blake, from Northern Illinois, reached up to make an impressive catch over the middle.

”All those guys, Calvin, Christian Blake, it was good to see those guys make plays and do what they do,” Sanu said.

Quinn praised the rookies’ speed and said the class ”has a chance to be an excellent one.”

NOTES: The team waived S Quincy Mauger, who spent his 2017 rookie season on injured reserve with a knee injury. He was an undrafted free agent from Georgia. … RB Devonta Freeman, who was slowed by a sprained right knee late last season, appeared to be fully recovered on his runs with the first-team offense.
