-- ESPN research
The Packers might have won had they not had to settle for two short field goals in the first half. ... Jaguars LB Daryl Smith (groin) left the game late in the third and did not return. ... Jaguars won despite missing a field goal (Josh Scobee has missed four in last four games), dropping two passes on third down, blowing several coverages, having two plays reversed on challenges and failing to down two punts that bounced inside the 10-yard line.
