Week 12 sack analysis vs. Chargers

Analyzing each sack given up by the Jaguars all season, moving onto Week 12.

Jim Steve-USA TODAY Sports

Entering their week 12 contest with the Chargers, the Jaguars had surrendered 33 sacks on the season. They were able to walk out of Sunday's game with only 2 more sacks to add to that total.

Sack No. 1:

Situation: 2nd-and-2 at the Jaguars 28 yard line. 00:28 left in Q2.

The Sack: Sack #1 on Sunday. Nobody able to get open downfield, coverage sack to end the half https://t.co/67saE2WbIk

Who was at fault: Miscellaneous

This was simply just a coverage sack, with the Jags sending all their targets downfield and the Chargers doing the same with their defenders at the end of the half.

Sack No. 2:

Situation: 2nd-and-10 at the Chargers 30 yard line. 2:42 left in Q4.

The Sack: Sack #2, kind of more of the same. Had to leave pocket early, couldn't get pass off in time https://t.co/O9vZFsDl5a

Who was at fault: Miscellaneous

Cann and Parnell both get beat but Bortles is able to escape, eventually still getting sacked later in the play. This sack was more the cause of a broken play.

Overall, thought this was a really good game by the OL in pass protection. The fact that nobody really got "beat" for a sack is a good testament to this. Cann, Joeckel, Yeldon had especially strong overall performances.

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