Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Detroit Lions: Week 6 sack analysis

47 dropbacks by Gardner Minshew and only one sack allowed? Not bad!

NFL: Detroit Lions at Jacksonville Jaguars Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars were going up against the worst pass rushing team in football and a defensive line that loved letting opposing running back rack up yards. Of course they didn’t do either very well!

And 47 Gardner Minshew passing plays later... we lost by three scores.

But there was only one sack. That’s not bad! Who was responsible for it?

Let’s find out!

Sack #1: 2nd & 10 at DET 45, 0:35 in 2Q

(Shotgun) G. Minshew II sacked at JAX 47 for -8 yards (T. Flowers). FUMBLES (T. Flowers), RECOVERED by DET-R. Okwara at JAX 43.

At just 2.7 seconds, it was the fastest sack in all of Week 6. When the opposing defensive linemen are getting to the quarterback that quickly, it’s on the offensive linemen.

Fault: Cam Robinson


Not a bad day from the offensive line, just a terrible game plan going in that Jay Gruden let get away from him when Gardner Minshew imploded.
