It finally happened — the Jacksonville Jaguars won a game for the first time in the 2021 campaign and snapped a 20-game losing streak dating back to 2020. Jacksonville defeated the Miami Dolphins in London by a final score of 23-20, and improved its record to 1-5. There is still plenty of work to do for this team, but it was finally a step in the right direction as head coach Urban Meyer and quarterback Trevor Lawrence earned their first career win in the NFL.

Let’s examine the snap counts for each player from the Jaguars in this past Sunday’s contest against the Dolphins. If you’re interested in how this game’s snap counts compare to the previous week against the Tennessee Titans, you can check that here.

Note: Number of plays are listed next to the player’s name/position and percentage of total offensive plays are listed in parentheses.

Offense

  • Jawaan Taylor, tackle, 66 plays (100 percent)
  • Andrew Norwell, guard, 66 plays (100 percent)
  • Cam Robinson, tackle, 66 plays (100 percent)
  • Tyler Shatley, guard, 66 plays (100 percent)
  • Trevor Lawrence (rookie), quarterback, 66 plays (100 percent)
  • Marvin Jones, wide receiver, 57 plays (86 percent)
  • James Robinson, running back, 56 plays (85 percent)
  • Laviska Shenault, wide receiver, 52 plays (79 percent)
  • Will Richardson, tackle, 42 plays (64 percent)
  • Dan Arnold, tight end, 41 plays (62 percent)
  • Jamal Agnew, wide receiver, 39 plays (59 percent)
  • Chris Manhertz, tight end, 30 plays (45 percent)
  • Ben Bartch, tackle, 24 plays (36 percent)
  • Luke Farrell (rookie), tight end, 17 plays (26 percent)
  • Tavon Austin, wide receiver, 17 plays (26 percent)
  • Carlos Hyde, running back, nine plays (14 percent)
  • Laquon Treadwell, wide receiver, seven plays (11 percent)
  • Jacob Hollister, tight end, five plays (eight percent)
  • Walker Little (rookie), tackle, one play (four percent)

There were injuries along the offensive line coming into the game, as center Brandon Linder and guard A.J. Cann are both currently on the injured reserved list. The offensive line injury woes got worse, though, as guard Ben Bartch — who was playing in Cann’s place — left the game with a concussion. Although, it appears Bartch is expected to be available following the bye week this week. Tyler Shatley played 100 percent of the snaps at center in Linder’s place, while Bartch played 24 snaps before his injury. Will Richardson replaced Bartch at right guard and played 42 snaps. Rookie offensive tackle Walker Little made his debut, but played only one offensive snap (and four special teams snaps).

As seems to be the case every week, a combination of five players played 100 percent of the offensive snaps, and this week it was rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence and offensive linemen Jawaan Taylor, Cam Robinson, Andrew Norwell and Shatley. Wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. continues to be on the field at a high rate, seeing snaps on 57 of the 66 total plays (86 percent).

It also appears that the coaching staff may have finally realized the value of running back James Robinson being out there on a nearly every-down basis, as he played 85 percent of the snaps this week (56 plays) after only playing 68 percent of the snaps last week (48 plays). With that said, fellow running back Carlos Hyde saw his snaps cut in half, getting 18 reps last week (25 percent) to just nine reps this week (14 percent).

Defense

  • Andrew Wingard, free safety, 70 plays (100 percent)
  • Shaquill Griffin, cornerback, 70 plays (100 percent)
  • Rayshawn Jenkins, strong safety, 70 plays (100 percent)
  • Nevin Lawson, cornerback, 70 plays (100 percent)
  • Josh Allen, outside linebacker/edge, 62 plays (89 percent)
  • Tre Herndon, cornerback, 58 plays (83 percent)
  • Dawuane Smoot, defensive end, 54 plays (77 percent)
  • Damien Wilson, linebacker, 51 plays (73 percent)
  • Malcom Brown, defensive tackle, 40 plays (57 percent)
  • Roy Robertson-Harris, defensive tackle, 38 plays (54 percent)
  • Jihad Ward, outside linebacker/edge, 33 plays (47 percent)
  • Adam Gotsis, defensive end, 29 plays (41 percent)
  • Dakota Allen, linebacker, 28 plays (40 percent)
  • Rudy Ford, strong safety, 25 plays (36 percent)
  • K’Lavon Chaisson, outside linebacker/edge, 21 plays (30 percent)
  • Shaquille Quarterman, linebacker, 17 plays (24 percent)
  • Chapelle Russell, linebacker, 16 plays (23 percent)
  • DaVon Hamilton, nose tackle, 13 plays (55 percent)
  • Lerentee McCray, defensive end/outside linebacker, three plays (four percent)
  • Andre Cisco (rookie), safety, two plays (three percent)

With Myles Jack out, many expected Shaquille Quarterman to see a big increase in playing time at linebacker, and while Quarterman played 17 snaps, it was actually Dakota Allen who benefited most from Jack’s absence, as he got in 28 defensive plays. Chapelle Russel also got in 16 defensive reps.

Defensive lineman Roy Robertson-Harris returned to the lineup after missing a few games, and played 38 snaps. Meanwhile rookie defensive tackle Jay Tufele broke his hand during pregame warmups and did not play. DaVon Hamilton played just 13 snaps, so it is unclear if he was dealing with an injury or if it was just a game flow thing.

Defensive backs Andrew Wingard, Shaquill Griffin, Rayshawn Jenkins and Nevin Lawson were the only players to play all 70 defensive snaps. Lawson saw an increased role with rookie cornerback Tyson Campbell out, and got his first career interception. Outside linebacker/edge rusher Josh Allen played 89 percent of the snaps (62 plays), which was the highest he has recorded this season.

Kicker Matthew Wright was the hero of the game on Sunday, connecting on two 50-plus yard field goals late in the fourth quarter, and three field goals overall, including a 53-yarder to win the game as time expired. Coming into the game, the Jaguars had not made a field goal all season. Given Wright’s performance, the team felt comfortable making him the full-time starter and cut Josh Lambo on Tuesday.
