Week 9 sack analysis vs the Jets

New, comments

Analyzing each sack given up by the Jaguars all season. Moving onto Week 9!

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Coming out of the bye, the Jaguars had given up 19 sacks through 7 games. They gave up 6 vs the Jets on Sunday, but in reality the pass protection was not as bad as the sack number indicates.

Sack No. 1:

Situation: 3rd-and-12 on the Jets 22 yard line. 10:10 left in Q1.

The Sack: Sack #1. Good blitz, Yeldon seemed like he was going out on a delayed route. (also Joeckel)

Who was at fault: Miscellaneous.

This was simply a really well called Blitz by the Jets.

Sack No. 2:

Situation: 3rd-and-7 on the Jets 35 yard line. 12:30 left in Q2.

The Sack: Sack #2. Is this on Yeldon? Don't know the protection but https://t.co/X536DNgNr9

Who was at fault: T.J. Yeldon

Again, another well-called blitz by NYJ. Yeldon doesn't deserve full blame because the protection call is unclear, but can still attribute this to him.

Sack No. 3:

Situation: 1st-and-10 on the Jaguars 9 yard line. 6:06 left in Q2.

The Sack: Sack #3, who do u guys think this is on https://t.co/lSrNVl0hPi

Who was at fault: Uh. Blake.

Sack No. 4:

Situation: 1st-and-10 on the Jets 41 yard line. 11:02 left in Q3.

The Sack: Sack #4. Yeldon has been good in pass pro this year, but this game was really rough. https://t.co/49R41wWK4O

Who was at fault: Yeldon.

Yeldon has had a strong season pass blocking, but he simply gets beat here.

Sack No. 5:

Situation: 3rd-and-8 on the Jets 40 yard line. 9:43 left in Q3.

The Sack: Sack #5. Parnell beat. https://t.co/7LPEu6NXu0

Who was at fault: Parnell.

Sack No. 6:

Situation: 1st-and-20 on the Jets 20 yard line. 5:49 left in Q4.

The Sack: And Sack #6. Blakelly https://t.co/iBGb7blueY

Who was at fault: Blake :(

So overall that is 2 sacks on Blake, 2 on Yeldon, 1 on Parnell, and 1 due to a good blitz call. Not a bad game by the OL.

Also, I will write on this later but Luke Joeckel is playing the best football of his career right now.
