The Jacksonville Jaguars played a perfect game against the Indianapolis Colts, winning 27-0, recording (another!) double-digit sack game, and not missing a single kick. The coverage units were good, the protection was good, the backup running backs went for almost 200 yards, and Blake Bortles had maybe one or two errant throws all day.

How did our friends at Pro Football Focus grade them out?

Week 7 Jaguars offensive stats

  • QB Blake Bortles earned his highest PFF overall grade of the season on Sunday, his grade of 80.8 was the fourth highest by a quarterback in Week 7. Bortles used play action the most of any quarterback on Sunday (44.8%) and he took full advantage, his 169 passing yards on play action led the NFL in Week 7.
  • WR Allen Hurns dominated in the slot against the Colts. He was targeted seven times in that position Sunday and caught four of them. He was the leading receiver in terms of receiving yards from the slot in Week 7 with 96 yards. His overall PFF grade of 79.2 was the 16th best by a wide receiver on Sunday.
  • TE Marcedes Lewis earned the highest overall grade of any Jaguars player on Sunday, his overall PFF grade of 87.9 was the best by a tight end in Week 7. He looked good in both the pass and the run game against the Colts, his receiving grade of 82.4 was the highest of any Jaguars plays as was his run blocking grade of 86.2.
  • RB T.J Yeldon stepped up I a big way in the absence of rookie sensation Leonard Fournette, his overall PFF grade of 87.1 was the second best by a Jaguar on Sunday and the third best by a running back in Week 7.
