Jaguars vs. Cardinals: Week 12 sack analysis

The Jaguars’ offensive line probably had their worst game of the season overall. Who was at fault for the three sacks?

The Jacksonville Jaguars offensive line had their least productive game of the season against the Arizona Cardinals, leading the way for just 29 yards rushing from running backs and allowing three sacks (and four hits) on Blake Bortles.

Who was responsible for each of the three sacks? Let’s find out:

Sack #1: 3rd and 12 at JAX 23, 7:39 in 2Q

Marcedes Lewis doesn’t handle a blitzing Tyrann Mathieu (No. 32) well at all, but left guard Chris Reed definitely drifts way too far inside in helping Brandon Linder to effectively block Olsen Pierre (No. 72). Mathieu gets there first but I’d say this is a combination of responsibility between the two of them.

Fault: Marcedes Lewis and Chris Reed

Sack #2: 3rd and 3 at 50, 3:50 in 2Q

Chris Reed and Cam Robinson are just straight overpowered by their defenders on this play.

Fault: Cam Robinson and Chris Reed

Sack #3: 2nd and 10 at ARI 22, 0:46 in 2Q

There looks to be some miscommunication between Chris Reed and Cam Robinson once again. It looks like the play is designed in a way where Reed is supposed to block his defender over to Robinson who is supposed to pick it up more quickly, allowing Reed to get back in his zone sooner but that doesn’t happen.

Fault: Cam Robinson and Chris Reed
