The Jacksonville Jaguars had a season of winning last year and it looks like they're none too happy about their recent backslide into more familiar territory. According to several reporters who were around the Jacksonville locker room, things got heated after the team's loss to the Houston Texans and Defensive End Yannick Ngakoue had to be restrained by his teammates. 

Jags just briefly opened up the doors to the locker room before shutting them. Calais Campbell was holding back Yannick Ngakoue, who threw off Campbell. Lots of yelling coming from the room.

Daniel Popper's report was corroborated by other journalists at the TIAA Bank Field. The beat reporters took to Twitter to share that they saw Ngakoue being restrained by Calais Campbell and heard yelling coming from the closed locker room. 

#Jaguars clearly boiling over with frustration. Yannick Ngakoue was verbally upset in the locker room and was being held back by Calais Campbell. @wjxt4 @Sports4Jax

Ngakoue had been spotted shouting at coaches during the game, clearly upset at the way their game against the Texans was playing out. The Jaguars struggled on both sides of the ball, with starting quarterback Blake Bortles getting benched in favor of Cody Kessler after fumbling twice. After starting the season as AFC contenders, the Jags have lost 4 of their last 5 games. It seems like the losses might be getting to them.
