Zay Jones: Jaguars will play their best football in November, December
The Jacksonville Jaguars are 0-3 in October, but wide receiver Zay Jones isn’t hitting the panic button. In fact, he’s feeling pretty optimistic about the rest of the calendar year.
“October has been spooky, to say the least,” Jones said at a press conference Monday. “You want to play your best football in November and December. You don’t want to peak too soon, and I feel as though this team is on pace to do something special down the road.
“November and December, when we start clicking at that moment, and we gain that momentum, I think that’s what makes a dangerous team and hopefully we can put ourselves in that category moving forward.”
While it’s a cheery take on the team’s current three-game slide, it’d also behoove the Jaguars not to wait until November to snap their losing streak. Jacksonville still has two more games in October: a Week 7 home game against the New York Giants and a Week 8 game in London against the Denver Broncos.
If the Jaguars continue their October struggles, it might not matter much how November or December goes for them.
Jones, 27, caught all five of his targets for 42 yards in the loss to the Colts. Through the first six weeks of the season, Jones leads the team in receptions with 27, despite missing the Week 4 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
