JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- One of the reasons the Jaguars are 0-8 is the team's strength of schedule.
The Jaguars' opponents were a combined 43-18 and they played quarterbacks Peyton Manning, Philip Rivers, Russell Wilson, Andrew Luck and Colin Kaepernick. The second-half schedule is much easier (opponents are a combined 29-37), so getting victory No. 1 won't be a tough as it was in the first half, even without suspended receiver Justin Blackmon.
That's just one of the 10 storylines that the Florida Times-Union's Hays Carlyon lists for the second half of the season.
Here are some additional pieces of Jaguars content from around the web in our daily Reading the Coverage feature:
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday that Blackmon will enter a rehab facility.
Blackmon's suspension leaves a big void in the Jaguars' receiving corps.
The T-U's Ryan O'Halloran has a midseason report card. The best grade he awarded was a C-plus to the special teams.
O'Halloran also sat down with coach Gus Bradley for a Q&A session.
