With the Jaguars trailing 14-10 and on the Cleveland one-yard-line with three seconds remaining, the question was whether to put the ball in the hands of rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert or to give it to running back Maurice Jones-Drew.
Offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter called for a Gabbert pass that sailed behind Mike Thomas and the Jaguars (3-7) left with a 14-10 loss that puts them out of contention with six games remaining.
On the decision to throw on the final play, coach Jack Del Rio said, “Our offensive coordinator calls the plays. I can’t speak to his thinking. You’ll have to get with him.’’
