Week 15 sack analysis vs. the Atlanta Falcons

New, comments

Who was responsible for each sack on Blake Bortles last Sunday?

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Entering their week 15 matchup with the Atlanta Falcons with 40 sacks surrendered on the year, the Jaguars added 2 more to that total on Sunday.

Sack No. 1:

Situation: 3rd-and-10 at the Jaguars 9 yard line. 14:12 left in Q4.

The Sack: Sack #1. Parnell wasn't ready to block for Blake running upfield. This is what I mean when I say Blake make... https://t.co/WJZabpiGw0

Who was at fault: Blake Bortles.

Some are gonna think this is on Parnell, but I see it differently. Parnell had the defender blocked but was not prepared for Blake to step up and try to run. If Blake had stayed in the pocket, a sack doesn't happen. I am not saying Blake was wrong to try to run, but it was indeed because of that decision that a sack occurred. A lot of Parnell's "negative" plays have been like this.

Sack No. 2:

Situation: 2nd-and-2 on the Jaguars 49 yard line. 1:09 left in Q4.

The Sack: Sack #2, on the final drive of the game. Goodnight Zane. https://t.co/3iwJAwNURF

Who was at fault: Zane Beadles

Considering the game situation, this has to be the worst sack Beadles has given up all year. Just awful.

Overall I thought the OL played well after a bumpy start. Just a really bad play in a really bad situation to end the game. Also funny how Luke came away from another game without surrendering a sack, considering the tweets sent my way during the game.

Here is the updated sack accountability chart for 2015.
