JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Guard Uche Nwaneri has heard all sorts of excuses for opponents losing to the Jacksonville Jaguars in recent weeks.
They're amusing — and insulting.
Nwaneri calls the comments "ridiculous" and adds, "Really, are we a high school team playing y'all and you have to apologize to your city because you lost to us? Come on, man. This is the NFL. Every win is a hard-earned win."
The Jaguars (3-9) have won three of their last four games, all since starting the season with eight consecutive losses by double digits. It's been a modest turnaround that coincides with coach Gus Bradley's team playing better and a considerably easier second-half schedule.
Still, opponents have been less than complimentary afterward.
Jacksonville hosts the Houston Texans on Thursday night.
