Quarterback Blake Bortles had three turnovers, including a crippling interception that was returned for a touchdown during the third quarter in a 20-10 defeat. The loss was the seventh straight for the Jaguars -- most since the team opened 0-8 in 2013 -- to give them the dubious distinction of being the only team in the league to pile up double-digit losses in each of the past six seasons. "I think we're really close," said Bortles, who has 10 career wins and had an 11th interception returned for a touchdown against the Broncos. "I know people are tired of hearing it, and I'm tired of saying it. But we're not far off." While the Jaguars (2-10) were eliminated from playoff contention last week, the Vikings (6-6) can salvage what is quickly becoming an unsatisfying season of their own with a strong final month. They raced to a 5-0 record behind a ferocious defense and efficient play from quarterback Sam Bradford early in the season before stumbling in six of their past seven games. Much like the Jaguars, the Vikings have wasted several sterling performances from their defense. In their six losses this season, they have scored 10, 10, 16, 20, 13 and 15 points. Bradford has thrown 13 touchdown passes with just three interceptions but has been sacked 28 times behind an offensive line that has had to shuffle and reshuffle due to injuries. He is averaging a pedestrian 6.77 yards per attempt, which ranks 27th among qualified quarterbacks. Minnesota's latest setback came in a crushing 17-15 home loss to the Dallas Cowboys . The Vikings failed on a two-point conversion attempt that would have tied the game with 25 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter when Bradford misfired while looking for tight end Kyle Rudolph. Bradford appeared to be struck in the facemask, but no flag was thrown.
