Week 16 sack analysis vs. the Saints

New, comment

Analyzing each sack given up by the Jaguars in their 2015 season.

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Entering their Week 16 matchup with the New Orleans Saints, the Jacksonville aguars had surrendered 42 sacks on the year. They gave up two more on Sunday, making it back-to-back weeks they only gave up two sacks.

Sack No. 1: Sack #1, no way for #us to know who it was on, though. https://t.co/BX1t8xlNzd

Situation: 3rd-and-8 at the Jaguars 22 yard line. 9:49 left in Q2.

The Sack: Sack #1, no way for #us to know who it was on, though. https://t.co/BX1t8xlNzd

Who was at fault: Parnell.

Typically we do not like to make assumptions on protection calls, but this one makes a little more sense considering that Parnell is 1) The only OL on the right side who didn't slide right and 2) ended up doubling Cann's man.

Sack No. 2:

Situation: 1st-and-10 at the Jaguars 41 yard line. 0:04 left in 21 in Q2.

The Sack: Sack #2. Blake. Pls. https://t.co/68MXHd3qqN

Who was at fault: Blake Bortles

I don't think we need to debate this one very hard, personally.
