During Bye Week, I highlighted the Jaguars making their mark in franchise history during the 2023 season. While the season most definitely did not end the way we hoped or expected, let’s look at the players who achieved career highs, NFL records, and franchise records after Bye Week this season.

Travis Etienne became the first Jaguar to record at least ten rushing touchdowns since Maurice Jones-Drew in 2009 when he scored 15 rushing touchdowns. He also became the first Jaguar to record back-to-back 1,000+ yard seasons since Jones-Drew in 2010. Etienne ended the season with 11 touchdowns and tied his career-long touchdown during Week 17. He had a 62-yard touchdown during Week 17 of the 2022 season.

Calvin Ridley tied Christian Kirk for the most receiving touchdowns (eight) by a player during their first season with the Jaguars. Ridley also became the third player in franchise history to record 1,000+ receiving yards during their first season with the Jaguars. He joins Christian Kirk (2022) and Keenan McCardell (1996). Ridley ended the season with 1,016 yards.

Travon Walker achieved his 100th career tackle during the Jaguars’ Week 18 matchup against the Tennessee Titans. Walker finished the season with 21 solo tackles and 10 sacks. Week 18 marked Roy Robertson-Harris’s 100th career game. Robertson-Harris joined the Jaguars in 2021 after spending four seasons with the Chicago Bears. He finished the season with 12 solo tackles and 3.5 sacks.

With his seven career interceptions, Andre Cisco is now tied for 11th in interceptions. Cisco is currently tied with Dave Thomas (1995-99), Jason Craft (1999-03), Marlon McCree (2001-03,09), Deon Grant (2004-06), and Reggie Nelson (2007-10). Rashean Mathis (2003-12) currently leads the franchise with 30 interceptions.

Week 18 marked Trevor Lawrence’s 50th start. He is currently ranked fourth in completions, fourth in passing yards, fourth in passing touchdowns, and third in yards per attempt amongst quarterbacks in franchise history. During Week 12, Trevor Lawrence set a new record in a single game against the Texans with 364 passing yards. Lawrence, 24, became the third-youngest player in the NFL to reach 10,000 passing yards. Jameis Winston and Drew Bledsoe were 23 when they reached the yardage.

Josh Allen broke Calais Campbell’s 2017 single-season sack record (14.5) with 17.5 sacks. He now ranks second in franchise history in career sacks with a career total of 45 sacks.

Evan Engram is now leading tight ends in Jaguars history in single-season receiving yards with a total of 963. He beat his previous record of 73 single-season receptions amongst tight ends with 114 receptions. Engram became the eighth player in NFL history to record 100 receptions in a single season.

Brandon McManus is tied for fifth place with Riley Patterson in franchise history for field goals made (30). Rayshawn Jenkins became one of three Jaguars since 2018 to record consecutive seasons with at least two interceptions. Jenkins ended the season with 60 solo tackles, one sack, and two interceptions. Zay Jones recorded his 3,000th receiving yard during Week 18. He finished the season with 3028 career receiving yards.

Foye Oluokun became the fourth player in NFL history since 2000 to record three consecutive seasons with at least 150 tackles. Oluokun ended the season with 111 solo tackles and 62 assisted tackles. He has a career total of 511 solo tackles and 308 assisted tackles.
