LONDON -- It's not the type of performance that will cause many British NFL fans to get behind the Jaguars.
In the first year of a four-year commitment to play one game per season at Wembley Stadium, the Jaguars lose to the 49ers by a score of 42-10.

San Francisco jumped out to a 28-0 lead before the Jaguars got on the scoreboard with a 38 yard field goal by Josh Scobee just before halftime.
In the third quarter, Chad Henne connected with Mike Brown for a 29 yard touchdown. That cut the 49ers lead to 28-10, but that's as close as the Jaguars would get.
After Frank Gore's second touchdown run of the day made it 35-10, Marcedes Lewis fumbled after making his first reception of the day. San Francisco linebacker Dan Skuta picked up the loose ball and returned it 49 yards for a touchdown.
With today's loss, the Jaguars are now (0-8). They will return to Jacksonville on Monday and will have a bye next weekend. Their next game will be November 10th at Tennessee.
