Jaguars Power Play of the Week: John Chick's Sack/Fumble

New, comments

The Jacksonville Jaguars have had a hole at the defensive end position they've attempted to fill since they lost Tony Brackens to injury. In Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, a player who was picked up off the Indianapolis Colts practice squad prior to the start of the season, continued to flash and made some plays. Defensive end John Chick had a bit of a coming out party against the Steelers and made a key play on defense.

Late in the fourth quarter, the Pittsburgh Steelers held a 17-10 lead and were trying to mount a drive to put the game out of reach. The Jaguars defense put the Steelers offense in 3rd and 10. Ben Roethlisberger dropped back to pass and as soon as he hit the depth of his drop, he was hit from behind by John Chick, who also stripped the football for a sack/fumble, effectively ending the drive and giving the ball back to the Jaguars. It would have been nice for the Jaguars to recover the football, but it put the ball back in the offense's hands late in the game, down by 7 points.
