Here’s the good news from the Jacksonville Jaguars offensive line in the 19-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens: they didn’t give up a sack until the middle of the fourth quarter.
The bad news? They gave up three in half a quarter.
The offensive line held up for most of the game when it came to pass protection (run blocking is a different story) but they regressed hard when the Ravens could pin their ears back and rush in obvious passing downs.
How did each sack look and who was responsible?
Sack #1: 1st-and-10 at JAX 31, 11:07 left in 4Q
Luke Joeckel driven backwards. Good straight-ahead rush by Terrell Suggs.
Final verdict: Luke Joeckel
Sack #2: 2nd-and-12 at JAX 29, 10:25 left in the 4Q
Prayers up, Brandon Linder.
Final verdict: Tyler Shatley
Sack #3: 2nd-and-4 at JAX 31, 1:02 left in the 4Q
This was all Blake Bortles. There’s a minute left in the game, you’re down by two, you’re out of the pocket -- throw the damn ball away.
Final verdict: Blake Bortles
