- Play Calling:
- The Jaguars attempted a fake punt on the first drive from their own 49 yard line to keep the first drive of the game alive. This drive ended with a Jaguars touchdown. They would not attempt a punt again until the fourth quarter. They had converted on 9 of their first 11 third downs.
- The Colts attempted to stymie the Jaguars rush with more run-pass options for Colts QB Jacoby Brissett. It didn’t work.
- Personnel Utilization:
- The Colts played with three rookie cornerbacks in the game out of necessity.
- The Jaguars young wide receivers (Marqise Lee, Dede Westbrook, and Keelan Cole) combined for over half of the team’s receptions and both Lee and Cole found the end zone.
- In-Game Adjustment: The Colts were unable to get any pressure on the Jaguars. Their defense was porous. Bortles had his third straight 300 yard game against the Colts.
- The Colts could do nothing to help out Brissett (21-for-36 for 174 yards, two interceptions, one touchdown, four sacks, 56.9 passer rating). The offensive line could only sit back and watch as the Jaguars kept blitzing.
- What We Didn’t Like:
- The Colts were never in this game.
- Major coaching decisions
- The Jaguars go for 2 to make it 24-3 after an earlier PAT failed.
- Jaguars challenge that a ball is batted on a bad PI call , the fact that it is batted , negated it
