Coach Jack Del Rio broke down Jacksonville's final, failed sequence at Cleveland and found plenty to fault.
He refused to blame play-calling, though.
Del Rio said Monday he had no problem with offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter calling a pass on a third-and-goal play from the 1-yard line with 3 seconds remaining at Cleveland. Many believe the Jaguars should have put the ball in the hands of their best offensive playmaker, running back Maurice Jones-Drew, with the game on the line.
Instead, Koetter had oft-errant rookie Blaine Gabbert drop back and throw. Gabbert's pass sailed behind Mike Thomas, leaving the Jaguars (3-7) with a 14-10 loss than likely knocked them out of playoff contention.
The Jaguars host Houston on Sunday.
