Blake Bortles entered the season with a lot of hype surrounding him after helping lead the Jacksonville Jaguars to the AFC Championship Game last season. The Jaguars were unable to knock off the New England Patriots, but there were high hopes that they could do so this year. Unfortunately, that has not been the case.

Not only are the Jaguars not as good as they were last season, they aren't even going to make the playoffs. Heading into Week 13, Jacksonville possesses a 3-8 record.

Due to their slow start, the Jaguars have made some big moves this week. One of those moves was to bench starting quarterback Blake Bortles in favor of Cody Kessler. Jacksonville will take on the Indianapolis Colts this week.

In an interview shared by ESPN, Bortles opened up about the benching and took for blame for it getting to this point.

“I put myself in this position and I didn’t play good enough. Didn’t win football games. Couldn’t find a way to get it done. And when that happens, it’s a business and everybody understands that. I don’t think there’s anything personal involved. As a quarterback, I think you have one job and that’s to win a football game. And if you don’t do that, your time’s probably limited.”

Throughout the 11 games that he played this season with the Jaguars, Bortles completed 60.4 percent of his pass attempts for 2,572 yards, 13 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions. He wasn't horrible, but he wasn't getting the job done either.

His future in Jacksonville is very much in question at this point in time. Bortles has not done enough to earn the trust of the front office or coaching staff.

At 26 years old, Bortles' career is at a crossroads. It won't be easy for him to get back on track in Jacksonville.

Expect to see Kessler start at least the next few games for the Jaguars. Bortles may not end up starting again this season and it would not be shocking to see Jacksonville look for a new quarterback in the offseason.
