Week 1: Eagles 34, Jaguars 17
Jacksonville outscored Philadelphia 17-0 in the first half, but the Eagles put up 34 unanswered points in the second half. It was the Jaguars’ first 17-point lead since Week 14 of the 2011 season against Tampa Bay. The game matched the largest blown lead in franchise history. They also squandered 17 points leads in losses to Carolina in 2003 and Baltimore in 2000.
