The Jacksonville Jaguars went to play the New York Jets, were handed every opportunity to win, and snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. How did Pro Football Focus grade us in the loss?

Let’s find out.

Week 4 Jaguars offensive stats

  • Guard Patrick Omameh was the Jaguars’ highest graded offensive player Sunday with an overall PFF grade of 86.1 which ranked first among guards. He excelled in run blocking earning a grade of 86.8 and only allowed one total pressure on his 38 pass blocking snaps for a pass blocking efficiency of 98.0.
  • It was a rough day for fellow offensive lineman Jeremy Parnell who allowed four total pressures on his 38 pass block snaps, his pass blocking efficiency of 92.1 was the 10th lowest by an offensive tackle on Sunday.
  • A week after a three-touchdown performance for TE Marcedes Lewis, he failed to make a reception on his three targets against the Jets on Sunday but did grade well in the run game with a run block grade of 91.
  • QB Blake Bortles struggled to find his targets Sunday, the QB had the third lowest adjusted completion percentage against the Jets at 58.6 percent, particularly from a clean pocket where he only completed 11 of his 23 pass attempts and was also picked off, his passer rating of 40.7 from a clean pocket was the lowest by a QB on Sunday.
  • Rookie RB Leonard Fournette had a strong performance Sunday, he forced seven total missed tackles against the Jets (6 rushing, 1 receiving) for an elusive rating of 59.4, the fourth-highest by a RB in Week 4.

Week 4 Jaguars defensive stats

  • LB Myles Jack was the highest graded played for the jaguars on Sunday, the second year LB earned a PFF overall graded of 86.8 against the Jets which ranked second overall among LBs. He dominated in coverage earning a coverage grade of 90.5.
  • Edge defender Yannick Ngakoue had another strong performance for the second week in a row. He collected four total pressures against the Jets on his 30 pass rush snaps, his pass-rush productivity of 11.7 ranked seventh among 4-3 DEs in Week 4.
  • Despite only collecting two total pressures in the pass game, DE Calais Campbell had a better showing in the run game. His 3 stops in run defense were tied for the second most by a 4-3 DE on Sunday and his run stop percentage of 10.7 ranked 10th.
  • CB Jalen Ramsey had one of his worst games of the season so far, despite an overall grade of 81.2 the star CB did allow three of his five targets to be caught and he gave up a passer rating of 65.4 when targeted, whilst not bad statistics this is not what we have come to expect.
