The Jacksonville Jaguars had a very, very good day against the Chicago Bears. Blake Bortles was sacked just twice. He was hit just three times. And there were just two tackles for a loss on 53 offensive plays.
But two sacks are two sacks... who was responsible for each of them? (It’s fairly cut-and-dry this week. Sorry, everyone.)
Sack #1: 2nd-and-8 at JAX 41, 2:40 left in 2Q
You don’t put Julius Thomas one-on-one with Willie Young. You just don’t.
Final verdict: Julius Thomas
Sack #2: 2nd-and-5 at JAX 21, 11:44 left in 4Q
Blake Bortles is totally to blame for this sack. He’s got to either tuck and run or throw it away. His hesitancy to make a decision cost his team yards, the ball, and almost the game.
Final verdict: Blake Bortles

And that’s it. Two sacks. Next up: Oakland!
