Thoughts: The offensive line gave up just a single sack on the day, protecting much better than in past weeks and continuing on their trend of improving as the season went on. The Jaguars had one of the better days running the football as well as letting Chad Henne get hit just three times.

Thoughts: The Jaguars backfield had their most productive day yet, despite the fact that both Maurice Jones-Drew and Jordan Todman left the game with injuries. Luckily for the Jaguars it happened late in the game when it didn't really matter, but there were a number of explosive runs against the Texans.


Tight end
Marcedes Lewis Clay Harbor Danny Noble

Thoughts: The snap distribution at the tight end position is no surprise, with Lewis getting the lion's share. This go-round however Lewis was actually used more in the passing game and it paid off big time with some of his contested catches.


Wide receiver

Thoughts: With Mike Brown back in the lineup after missing with injury, the snap distribution here is no surprise. Brown and Shorts started the majority of the formations as the outside receiver with Ace Sanders in half the time in the slot or in the backfield.
