Jacksonville Jaguars and Atlanta Falcons have had a rough start to the 2021 season. Both the teams have lost their opening two fixtures in the league and have looked to be in complete disarray so far. While it is too early to comment on anything, looking at their past history, things are looking bleak for both teams.

Due to repeated poor performances by the sides, both teams released statements from their respective coaches asking for fan support and strength. Jacksonville Jaguars were the first to post the statement. Soon after, the Falcons followed suit but the graphics used by the Falcons was eerily similar to the ones used by the Jaguars. This resulted in the Jaguars publically calling out the Falcons and accusing them of plagiarism.
