Jaguars vs. Colts: Week 4 sack analysis

Analyzing each sack given up by the Jaguars all season, moving onto Week 4.

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Entering Sunday's game vs the Colts, the Jaguars had given up 7 sacks on the season. 5 in week 1, and 2 in week 3.

While Bortles was under duress frequently vs the Colts talented DL, the Jaguars managed to give up only 1 sack, bringing their season total to 8 over 4 games.

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: 3rd-and-6 on Jaguars 20 yard line. 14:30 left in 2nd quarter.

The Sack:

Who was at fault: Unclear

This is one of the sacks that would go in the miscelaneous category because while we don't know whether Yeldon or Cann was responsibile for the sack, we do know that they weren't on the same page and this is what lead to the sack to begin with. Hard to assess actual blame here without knowing the protection call.

The Jaguars have given up 8 sacks through 4 games, compared to 19 sacks at the same point last year.

Below is the updated sack accountability chart for the 2015 season.
