Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch believes rookie quarterback Blake Bortles continues to pick up the offense at a quick pace.

Fisch pointed out two occasions in which Bortles made a proper adjustment in Thursday's preseason game at Chicago.

The first came on a 16-yard completion to Kerry Taylor on 3rd-and-5. Bortles then impressed many with his 29-yard pass to Taylor later in the game. On second-and-1, Chicago loaded the box with defenders. Bortles checked to a pass and went through his progressions to find Taylor down the left sideline with an accurate throw.

Bortles has completed 18-of-28 passes for 277 yards in the preseason.

"He was able to move the ball with great tempo," Fisch said. "We were able to extend some drives where we didn't in the first game. ... I thought he threw the ball well. He continues to throw the ball confidently and rip it in there with some good velocity."
