Week 6 Sack Analysis vs the Texans

New, comments

Analyzing each sack given up by the Jaguars all season, moving onto week 6.

Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

The Jaguars came into their week 6 contest with the Texans having given up 14 sacks over 5 games. The would exit the Texans game having given up 3 more sacks, but the number isn't as bad as it looks.

In Week 1 I described the process of distributing accountability to the Jaguars offense when it comes to sacks, be it the OL, Blake, or a miscellaneous reason such as a free blitzer.

Sack No. 1

Situation: 1st-and-10 at the Jaguars 38 yard line. 15:00 left in the 2nd quarter.

The Sack: <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Sack #1 of 3 Sunday. First one Luke has given up this season. <a href="https://t.co/FdnqxbN90b">https://t.co/FdnqxbN90b</a></p>&mdash; Hank Bortlebert (@HankJoness) <a href="https://twitter.com/HankJoness/status/656483344784478208">October 20, 2015</a></blockquote>

Who was at fault: Luke Joeckel

In Luke's credit, this was the first sack he has given up all year. His play has been not great, but good enough. Here he struggles with a spin move and gives the OLB a free path to the QB instead of collapsing him into the interior OL.

Sack No. 2

Situation: 1st-and-goal at the Texans 1-yard line. 5:19 left in the 4th quarter.

The Sack: <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Technically sack #2. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/MOREJAX?src=hash">#MOREJAX</a> <a href="https://t.co/8o8d1xnVeJ">https://t.co/8o8d1xnVeJ</a></p>&mdash; Hank Bortlebert (@HankJoness) <a href="https://twitter.com/HankJoness/status/656483470731034624">October 20, 2015</a></blockquote>

Who was at fault: Miscellaneous

This was just a Jaguars play. All I got.

Sack No. 3

Situation: 3rd-and-2 at the Texans 38-yard line. 2:00 left in the first quarter.

The Sack: <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Sack #3. It isn&#39;t a Jaguars game without Zane Beadles falling in his face <a href="https://t.co/GiRhbacTW6">https://t.co/GiRhbacTW6</a></p>&mdash; Hank Bortlebert (@HankJoness) <a href="https://twitter.com/HankJoness/status/656483797958008832">October 20, 2015</a></blockquote>
