Bortles threw a 63-yard touchdown pass to Allen Hurns in the fourth quarter for his first career score.
Bortles came in to start the second half and completed one of five passes for 21 yards on his first NFL series. He also had a 14-yard scramble called back due to a holding penalty.
Bortles' second series ended with a Jaguars field goal.
Bortles was the third selection April's draft. He played college football at UCF.
Bortles was the second rookie quarterback to make his NFL debut Sunday. The Vikings' Teddy Bridgewater stepped in for an injured Matt Cassel.
