The Jacksonville Jaguars offensive line played a very good game against the Kansas City Chiefs. You’d never know that their left tackle hadn’t played left tackle since puberty and that they unexpectedly threw in a sixth round rookie quarterback who wasn’t even recruited out of high school.
On 34 pass attempts, Jaguars quarterbacks were sacked just once — late in the third quarter on one of the longest down and distances that backup quarterback Gardner Minshew faced all game.
And here is that one time.
Sack #1: 1st & 20 at JAX 12, 1:49 left in 3Q
(Shotgun) G. Minshew sacked at JAX 9 for -3 yards (E. Ogbah).
At first glance, you can see Emmanuel Ogbah use his speed to get around right tackle Jawaan Taylor. It happens. Taylor is a rookie and he (largely) played a good game. But Minshew had a full three seconds to make what look like three reads. He’s got to tuck and run before Ogbah gets there.
Fault: Gardner Minshew and Jawaan Taylor
And that’s it — Taylor and Minshew combined for a sack and aside from that the quarterbacks got hit just twice. Pretty good!
