RTC: Fast start, slow finish

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Another fast start, another slow finish for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Jaguars scored 14 points and totaled 111 yards in the first quarter but didn't get much going after that in a 27-14 loss to the Arizona Cardinals at EverBank Field, writes the Florida Times-Union's Ryan O'Halloran.

Receiver Cecil Shorts isn't happy with the way he's being used, either. He was targeted just once until the end of the fourth quarter and ended up with just two catches for 22 yards.

"I'm going to have to say something and sit down with them [coach Gus Bradley and offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch] because it's getting ridiculous," Shorts said. "But I trust those guys that we'll figure things out on our side of the ball and get things going."
