Third down problems hampering Jacksonville Jaguars’ offense -
On a short-yardage play this past Sunday, Leonard Fournette took a pitch and before he could reach the line of scrimmage he was met by four New York Jets defenders.

With nowhere to go, Fournette was dropped for a four-yard loss on the third-and-1 play that came on the Jaguars’ opening drive of the third quarter.

Although Fournette gained 86 yards on 24 carries in the 23-20 overtime loss to the Jets, he hasn’t had much luck on third-down plays and neither have the Jaguars.

Myles Jack showing he was worth the risk -
When the Jacksonville Jaguars traded up in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft to take UCLA linebacker Myles Jack, it was viewed as a calculated risk with a lot of potential reward. There were concerns about Jack’s knee leading up to the draft and a player many thought would be a Top 10 pick, ended up in the second round. After the 2016 season, which saw Jack struggle to even get on the field, a lot of people wondered if the team could have better used that second round pick, but so far in the 2017 NFL season with Jack as a full-time starter, it appears the correct decision was made.

Antonio Brown has rematch with water cooler on the sidelines -
Antonio Brown had better days than what we saw Sunday when he was targeted nine times and managed just four catches for 34 yards. His frustration boiled over before halftime when quarterback Ben Roethlisberger didn't see him wide open in the middle of the field. The result: Brown whipped up on a water cooler once he got to the sideline.
