The Jaguars jumped out to a quick start on their opening drive, thrashing the Patriots' defense in the pass game on a possession that would end with a Chad Henne touchdown pass to highly-touted rookie receiver Justin Blackmon.
The Patriots would come back with an impressive drive of their own, taking the ball inside the Jacksonville 5-yard-line. However, the Jags' defense was able to hold serve, forcing a short field goal from Stephen Gostkowski.
With the score 10-3, Jacksonville drove back into field goal range, but failed to come away with any points after a 43-yard miss from Scobee.
The Jaguars will have the ball at the New England 21-yard-line to begin the second quarter.
