The Jacksonville Jaguars just dominated the Indianapolis Colts. It was ugly for them — letting Blake Bortles throw dimes, allow Calais Campbell to set a new franchise record for sacks in a single season, and Paul Posluszny have the best game of the year.

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

Week 13 Jaguars offensive stats

  • QB Blake Bortles dominated in Week 13. His overall PFF grade of 88.7 was the best by a quarterback this week. Impressing with his ability to hit his receivers as his adjusted completion percentage of 81.4 was the fourth-best this week, particularly on deep passes targeted 20 or more yards downfield where he led all quarterbacks with an adjusted completion percentage of 66.7.
  • Bortles was also sensational when pressured against the Colts. He led all quarterbacks Sunday with a passer rating of 115.8 when pressured completion six of his 10 attempts for two touchdowns. Bortles also had the third-best adjusted completion percentage when pressured at 87.5. This was by far Bortles’ best performance of the season.
  • The wide receivers also helped Bortles in the Week 13 victory over the Colts, especially Marqise Lee. Bortles targeted Lee nine times on Sunday and was rewarded with seven receptions and a touchdown. Lee’s wide receiver rating of 143.5 was his best of the season and was the second-best among receivers. His overall grade of 85.4 ranked fifth.
  • Despite only gaining 57 yards on 20 carries versus the Colts, rookie runner Leonard Fournette still had the sixth-highest breakaway percentage of any runner on Sunday. He earned 24 of his 57 rushing yards (42.1 percent) on runs of 15 or more yards. Other than his one run which went for 24 yards Fournette was limited in his production with an overall PFF grade of 62.9 ranking 26 among running backs.
  • Guard A.J Cann put in a strong display against the Colts on Sunday. Cann graded as the third-best guard in Week 13 with an overall PFF grade of 82.4, putting in strong performances in both the run game (81.1 run block grade) and the passing game (82.3 pass block grade). Cann didn’t allow a single pressure on his 38 pass blocking snaps against the Colts, for a perfect pass-blocking efficiency rating of 100.

Week 13 Jaguars defensive stats

  • Safety Tashaun Gibson was the Jaguars highest graded player against the Colts. Gibson earned a PFF overall grade of 89.8 which was the best by a safety in Week 13. Gibson excelled in coverage with a coverage grade of 91.8 as he didn’t allow a catch to be caught in his coverage on three attempts which included an interception for Gibson.
  • Cornerback Aaron Colvin struggled all game on Sunday. He was the Jaguars lowest graded player with an overall grade of 35.3 as he allowed all six of his targets to be caught. He particularly struggled in the slot where he allowed all five of his targets to be caught and allowed a passer rating of 89.2 when targeted.
  • Interior defender Malik Jackson was one of the best rushing the passer in Week 13. Jackson had a pass-rush grade of 85.1 as he collected seven total pressures on 35 pass rushing snaps. His seven pressures were the most by a defensive tackle on Sunday, and the most he has managed in a game this season. Jackson’s pass-rush productivity rating of 15.7 was fourth-best.
  • LB Paul Posluszny was unstoppable in run defense against the Colts. Posluszny graded as the sixth-best linebacker in Week 13 with an overall PFF grade of 80.1. His five stops in run defense were the most by an inside linebacker this week and he also led all inside linebackers with a run stop percentage of 23.8.
  • Edge defender Calais Campbell had one of his worst games of the season on Sunday. The veteran defender was only able to amass three total pressure versus the Colts and only manged two stops throughout the whole game. His pass-rush productivity rating of 7.1 was his second lowest of the season and his lowest since Week 3. Campbell wasn’t much better in run defense as he graded poorly with a run defense grade of 48.1.
