The battle with Blaine Gabbert and Calais Campbell against their former teams
Here are the best reactions on the day, starting with the fact that not too many people had high opinions of the game going in to it...
I'm watching the Jaguars and the Cardinals. You can leave the Texans off the Sunday slate, but you can't stop me from finding the Texans game.— Rivers McCown (@riversmccown) November 26, 2017

Although, it didn’t exactly turn out that way.
Cardinals 3rd string quarterback Blaine Gabbert got off to a great start in the first half:

Jags fans weren’t impressed.
And the nerdy little child next to me: “yo, Gabbert is so good.” I want to die.— Carly (@carlyks) November 26, 2017
Oh my god we're gonna lose to Blaine Gabbert— Zach Goodall (@zach_goodall) November 26, 2017
BLAINE GABBERT REVENGE GAME UNDERWAY— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) November 26, 2017
The Jaguars offense looked atrocious, with Arizona stuffing Leonard Fournette and sacking Blake Bortles multiple times.
Me: I love the Jaguars— streaking Med (@god_hates_jags) November 26, 2017
Blake Bortles: /exists
Gabbert also found Ricky Seals-Jones as he added another touchdown to the day giving him three touchdowns on six catches.
Not too shabby, rookie!

Aggie Ricky Seals-Jones with another TD. He had two last week. Question for Cardinals: What took you so long?— Charean Williams (@NFLCharean) November 26, 2017
Lol Gabbert and Seals-Jones carrying this team.... Just like everyone expected coming into the season— Merry Coxmas (@Coximus2) November 26, 2017
But the Cardinals 13-0 lead wouldn’t last.
Blake Bortles had a nice long run that led to a rushing touchdown on the day as well, leading to some much-needed humor:

@Jaguars keep doing that Bortles run play— UCF Football (@UCF_Football) November 27, 2017
But...as he’s prone to do, he also turned it over a few times.
BORT BLAKEL’ED— streaking Med (@god_hates_jags) November 27, 2017
As did Gabbert...
We're getting the full BORTLESvGABBERT experience...— Seth (@SCoxFB) November 27, 2017
It really wasn’t the high level quarterbacking that most expected at the NFL level, it would seem...and over time approached.
NFL should pass a rule where Jaguars-Cardinals overtime can only feature passing attempts from Blake Bortles and Blaine Gabbert. First one to throw a pick loses.— Will Brinson (@WillBrinson) November 27, 2017
Then, Doug Marrone did the unthinkable and gave the Cardinals a chance late in the fourth quarter...

Super conservative Doug Marrone messes up time management and costs the Jags— YardsPerPass (@YardsPerPass) November 27, 2017
Leave Blake and Marrone at the airport— First place Hanx (@HankJoness) November 27, 2017
And it came down to a Phil Dawson 57-yarder....which he made!

Phil MFing Dawson ❗️4️⃣— D.J. Humphries (@74_hump) November 27, 2017
And in the end, only one player got their “revenge” at the end of the game...
Calais Campbell: it’s revenge game time, folks!— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) November 27, 2017
Blaine Gabbert: hold my coffee
This stat just about sums it up.
The Jaguars are now 5-23 in franchise history in games that Blaine Gabbert has started.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) November 27, 2017
That’s all for now, see you next week for a game against the division-leading Los Angeles Rams, everyone.
But before we go, head over to @BigCatCountry within the next 24 hours for some....interesting content.
Folks,,, we have a good ol' fashioned Twitter bet with @revengeofbirds! If we win, we get their account for 24 hours, if we lose vice versa. pic.twitter.com/jM2tA7dGph— Big Cat Country (@BigCatCountry) November 26, 2017
Any complaints about the above prediction by Seth can be tweeted to @FourVerts, thank you.
