Jaguars vs. Jets: Week 4 sack analysis

New, comments

Blake Bortles was pathetic on Sunday, but the offensive line is largely doing its job in terms of protecting him.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are a rollercoaster of emotion. I go between happy and sad dozens of times and then the game stops, with the end result seemingly picked as randomly as a Wheel of Fortune spin.

However, one thing that’s not so inconsistent — the Jaguars offensive line. They’ve only allowed three sacks all season, they gave Blake Bortles an absolutely clean pocket on 23 of his 35 pass attempts and only hit six times. They did give up a sack (sort of, as you’ll see) so who was at fault for it?

Let’s get to it!

Sack #1: 2nd and 5 at NYJ 32, 10:18 left in 1Q

That’s right, the only sack of the game came on their best offensive drive and it came on Bortles’ first real miscue. You’ve got to get rid of the ball. You’ve run out of field, there are two defenders closing in — throw the ball away, Blake.

Fault: Blake Bortles
