JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey has seen scores and highlights from around the league in recent weeks.

A blowout here, a lopsided loss there. In all, four games over the last three weeks decided by a combined 180 points.

The Jaguars (2-13) haven't been involved in any of them, and Mularkey believes it says something about how his players are handling the worst season in franchise history.

Jacksonville played arguably its best game all season in a 23-16 loss to playoff-bound New England on Sunday.

The Jaguars finished with 436 yards and 22 first downs, and had two decent chances to pull within a 2-point conversion of winning the game in the closing minutes.
