NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars at Buffalo Bills Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Pro Football Focus is charting everything when it comes to the 2018 NFL regular season and that includes the Week 12 matchup between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills.

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

Offense

  • The Jaguars looked to pound the ball on the ground. Leonard Fournette was effective out of the backfield for the Jaguars for the majority of the day. He got north and south and burst through the line. His PFF overall grade of 79.5 was his highest of the season and eighth best by a running back this week, although a later ejection marred his game.
  • Blake Bortles struggled to connect with his receivers on Sunday, while neither of his interceptions was extremely poorly thrown (one was a drop), he was unable to connect on a regular basis with his receivers, only completing 12 passes on the day. His adjusted completion percentage of 65% was the fifth lowest by a QB this week.

Defense

  • LB Telvin Smith had his best game of the season with a PFF overall grade of 89.6 versus the Bills, this ranked second among LBs this week. He graded well in all facets of the game this week with an 83.4 run defense grade, 82.4 tackle grade and a 79.3 coverage grade.
  • The defense put Bills QB Josh Allen under pressure on 48.1% of his dropbacks on Sunday, which was the second highest rate of any QB. Despite all the pressure they failed to get a single sack during the game as Allen threw for 126 yards and a touchdown while under pressure.
