The Jacksonville Jaguars didn’t just leave Week 11 with a win, they left with a massive one.
They took on their divisional rivals and whooped the Tennessee Titans 34-14. From the very beginning of the game, Jacksonville jumped out in front, and they didn’t look back.
For their offense, quarterback Trevor Lawrence was phenomenal. He completed 24 of his 32 total passes for 262 yards and two touchdowns without an interception. Not to mention that he rushed for two touchdowns as well. But when it came to throwing the ball down the field, he was consistently finding his playmakers.
Calvin Ridley had a monster day with seven of those completions for 103 receiving yards and both of those passing touchdowns from Lawrence. Christian Kirk had three catches for 48 yards, and the rest of the team shared the remaining completions pretty evenly. Evan Engram had four catches, Zay Jones had four, Luke Farrell had two, and running back Travis Etienne had three.
Speaking of Etienne, he had a modest day running the football, though he wasn’t needed to have a monstrous performance. He took 14 rush attempts for 52 yards without a score, but nothing more was needed as the team didn’t let go of the lead. The team was winning by so much later in the game, that both D’Ernest Johnson and Tank Bigsby received touches.
Johnson took seven carries for 20 yards with Bigsby taking nine for 21. What was more impressive than their offense was what the Jaguars did on the defensive side of the ball. Rookie signal caller Will Levis had completed 13 of his 17 passes for 158 yards and two touchdowns without an interception, yet the stats don’t tell the full story. He was consistently under pressure and throws down the field just weren’t available for him to even attempt.
The best part was the job they did with Derrick Henry. Henry had 10 rushes for just 38 total yards. All in all, it was a great day for Jacksonville, who got blown out by the San Francisco 49ers last week following a week off. They remain at the top of the division
