Jaguars vs. Chiefs: Who was at fault for each sack in Week 9?

The Jaguars allowed just two sacks against a pretty good Chiefs front seven.

The Jacksonville Jaguars played tight against the Kansas City Chiefs and the box score looked encouraging -- you go on the road in one of the toughest places to play and hold a 5-2 team to just a 19-14 win.

Until you see that the Chiefs were playing backup quarterback Nick Foles, third-string running back Charcanderick West, a host of backup defenders, and a backup offensive lineman or two. Oh, and Jeremy Maclin didn’t play and Travis Kelce was thrown out of the game in the third quarter.


But if we’re pointing fingers at who was responsible for the loss, it’s hard to blame the offensive line. They only allowed four pressures in addition to the two sacks on 47 passing plays called (41 drop backs and six times Bortles tucked it and ran). They also cleared the way for 205 yards on the ground and a 6.4 yards-per-carry average.

So who was responsible for each of the two sacks against the Chiefs? Let’s find out.

Sack #1: 1st-and-10 at KC 34, 0:50 left in 2Q

Jermey Parnell got caught looking as Dee Ford makes a great move inside and forces Blake Bortles to stop his progressions.

Verdict: Jermey Parnell

Sack #2: 2nd-and-10 at JAX 26, 11:11 left in 3Q

Jesus lmao.

Verdict: Jermey Parnell
