NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars at Kansas City Chiefs Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Pro Football Focus is charting everything when it comes to the 2018 NFL regular season and that includes the Week 5 matchup between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Kansas City Chiefs.

So who was the cream of the crop and who did poorly on Sunday? Let’s check it out!

Offense

  • Rookie receiver D.J. Chark Jr. was the Jaguars highest graded player on offense in the loss to the Chiefs. The rookie had a career high PFF grade of 82.8 as he proved to be the Jaguars most dangerous receiving threat, picking up 68 receiving yards on deep passes which ranked seventh among receivers in Week 5.
  • It was the offensive line that was the weak link on Sunday. They struggled to keep Bortles free from pressure all game ranking 22nd in terms of pass blocking efficiency in Week 5. Their 24 total pressures allowed was the most by a team this week and seven more than any other offensive line.

Defense

  • Safety Tashaun Gipson earned the honor of being the highest graded safety of Week 5 with an elite PFF overall grade of 92.5. He was dominant in coverage with an 92.2 coverage grade, he was targeted twice on Sunday one of which ended up as a pass breakup and the other as an interception.
  • Edge defender Calais Campbell was as disruptive as any edge defender against the run this week as he totalled four stops in run defense, which was tied for the most this week. His run stop percentage of 19 ranked 11th among edge defenders for Week 5.
