Right when we thought the Jaguars season couldn’t be more embarrassing, Jalen Ramsey flops in a primetime game.
During Jaguars’ blowout loss to the Titans on Thursday Night Football, the polemical cornerback tried to draw a flag on Titans tackle Taylor Lewan with an extremely overacted flop when the Tennessee player gave him a light head-butt, which was all caught on camera.

However, instead of a personal foul call, Ramsey got ripped by hundreds of NFL fans on Twitter who had probably been waiting to give the 24-year-old a dose of his own medicine – Ramsey trashed talk almost every quarterback in the league at the beginning of the season.
The tweets were as witty as accurate. Some of them nominated the Pro Bowler as “the clown of the year,” and some others compared him with soccer players or even the NBA legend Vlade Divac.
The Jaguars ended up losing the game 30-9, getting officially eliminated from a season that has been as embarrassing as Ramsey artistic skills. The Titans running back Derrick Henry ran all over Jacksonville defense going for 238 yards and four touchdowns, including a 99-yard TD and 54-yarder. After the game, Jalen Ramsey noted that the atrocious performance by his team wasn’t his fault, although he didn’t blame anyone in particular.
“I mean, I had limited opportunities; they ran the ball,” Ramsey said. “They ran the ball down our throat 100 percent of the game. Personally, I didn’t have a lot of opportunities to make a game-changing play. I do what I can do and that’s all I can do, to be honest.”
The Jaguars’ offense wasn’t any better on Thursday. They stacked up 98 yards total in the first half, one yard less than what Henry had on his touchdown during the second quarter. They finished scoring only once, which was actually their first touchdown since Nov. 25, 2018, against the Buffalo Bills.
After Thursday’s loss, now it’s time for the Jaguars to start thinking about next season and for Ramsey to stop flopping or to reconsider his profession.
