Slow starts, double-digit deficits no problem for these Jags

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — No lead is safe against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Comeback Cats clawed back from 27 points down to stun the Los Angeles Chargers 31-30 in the opening round of the AFC playoffs. It was the latest come-from-behind victory for a team that’s grown accustomed to slow starts and frantic finishes. As much heart-pounding excitement as the head-scratching trend has delivered for the Jaguars and their fans, it’s one they’d prefer to see end when Jacksonville (10-8) plays at top-seeded Kansas City (14-3) in the divisional round Saturday.
