Lions vs. Jaguars score: Detroit maintains 21-0 after third quarter

The Detroit Lions are up big heading into the fourth quarter of their matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars in EverBank Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The Lions used a big second quarter to build their lead, and the defense held throughout the third quarter.

Detroit came up with a couple of key turnovers to prevent Jacksonville from getting on the board. The first came as the Jaguars moved to midfield. Quarterback Blane Gabbert threw deep but was intercepted by safety Erik Coleman.

Jacksonville threatened again on its next possession, reaching the Lions' 26. Gabbert was intercepted a second time to end the drive, this time by cornerback Jonte Green.

Matthew Stafford has completed 19-of-28 passes for 246 yards. Calvin Johnson was shut out in the third quarter but still has six catches for 111 yards. Running back Mikel Leshoure has carried 15 times for 64 yards and three touchdowns. The Lions have the ball in Jaguars territory as the fourth quarter begins.
