Jaguars vs. Texans: Week 15 sack analysis

The Texans got just one sack all game and it didn’t even go for negative yards because they are FRAUDS.

When I went to the box score last night to double-check my memory and make sure that the Jacksonville Jaguars didn’t give up a sack against the Houston Texans, I saw a stat line next to Blake Bortles:

“Sacks: 1-0”

So, the Texans got a sack on Bortles that went for zero yards? I didn’t remember a sack, but maybe I missed something going getting a drink or something.

I didn’t miss anything. Below is the only “sack” the Texans got on Sunday and I’m tempted to just say — “Nah, this doesn’t actually count. We’re not putting it on the list.”

Sack #1: 2nd and 6 at HOU 14, 10:56 in 2Q

Brian Cushing plays coverage for the first second of this play and then starts to spy the quarterback. He runs down Bortles who it looks like actually went for a yard when you see where the ball is as he steps out of bounds.

It was called a sack, but it really wasn’t. It was a smart (i.e. not-dumb) play by Bortles to try and get something out of a broken second down. And it’s a good thing he did, because check out the next play.
