NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars-OTA Logan Bowles-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars went to host the Los Angeles Rams and came back with the worst special teams performance in franchise history. How did Pro Football Focus grade us in the underwhelming loss?

Let’s find out.

Week 6 Jaguars offensive stats

  • WR Marqise Lee was the highest graded jaguars play on Sunday, the WR earned an overall PFF grade of 89.4 against the Rams and was the highest overall grade by a WR in Week 6. Lee caught 5 of his 9 targets for 83 yards and forced two missed tackles.
  • QB Blake Bortles had the third highest passer rating when under pressure in Week 6, he earned a rating of 105.1 when under pressure completing 9 of his 15 attempts for 49 yards and a touchdown. Although he was one of the worst QBs Sunday from a clean pocket, his passer rating of 63.6 was the sixth lowest.
  • Rookie sensation Leonard Fournette continued to impress, his PFF overall grade of 77 ranked ninth among RBs in Week 6. Fournette earned the highest breakaway percentage of any RB in Week 6 as the runner earned 93 of his 130 rushing yards on runs of 15 or more yards (71.5%).
  • The offensive line struggled to protect QB Blake Bortles versus the Rams on Sunday, their 14 total pressures allowed were the sixth most by an offensive line in Week 6 and QB Blake Bortles faced pressure on 47.7% of his dropbacks the third highest percentage by a QB in Week 6.
  • RB Chris Ivory impressed as a receiver against the Rams, he earned a very good receiving grade of 89.4 and caught all nine of his targets for 74 receiving yards. His three forced missed tackled when receiving the ball were tied for the most by a RB in Week 6.

Week 6 Jaguars defensive stats

  • It was once again another dominant display from LB Telvin Smith who was the highest graded defensive player for the Jaguars on Sunday. Smith earned an overall PFF grade of 84 which ranked seventh among LBs in Week 6. He picked up three stops in run defense for a run stop percentage of 10, the 16th best by a LB.
  • Interior defender Malik Jackson impressed in run defense versus the Rams, he earned a run defense grade of 84.2 on Sunday as he collected two stops in run defense on his 21 run snaps for a run stop percentage of 9.5 which ranked 23rd among defensive tackles in Week 6.
  • CB Jalen Ramesy was targeted four times on Sunday allowing three of them to be complete but he didn’t allow a single yard after the catch as he held the Rams WRs in check. The passer rating of 102.1 allowed in his coverage is the highest he has allowed all season and his overall grade of 55.9 was the lowest of the season.
  • Edge defender Calais Campbell was strong against the run and the pass in Week 6, earning an 80.3 grade when rushing the passer and an 82.4 grade when stopping the run. Campbell may have only got three total pressures against the Rams but his pass-rush productivity of 13.1 ranked seventh among 4-3 defensive ends Sunday.
  • Safety Barry Church had a strong game Sunday, his PFF overall grade of 83.2 was the tenth highest by a safety in Week 6. He excelled in coverage earning a coverage grade of 81, he didn’t allow either of the two passed thrown in to his coverage and as well as breaking up one of them.
