The Jacksonville Jaguars take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 5 of the 2015 season and will need to study up to make sure they get better across the board, particularly in the red zone.
"Sunday saw the best all-around performance from the offensive line this season, in which the front five only allowed QB Blake Bortles to be sacked a single time, but also did their job in the running game.With proper opportunities and generally better blocking, Yeldon ran 22 times for 105 yards, including a spectacular 36-yard burst, his longest run of the season. It was the performance the Jaguars and fans were looking for, and he delivered."
"The Jaguars have scored only four touchdowns in 11 trips to the red zone in the first four games. That’s second worst in the AFC. Cleveland has scored touchdowns three times in 11 trips.“I know offensively we’re going to meet and kind of take a look at the last four games and say, “alright, let’s not wait to the bye week. Where are we right now? What are the things we need to do? What are the areas we need to improve one? Red zone is one of those areas.’’Bradley noted that offensive coordinator Greg Olson did well in the red zone in Oakland last year. They scored 21 touchdowns in 29 trips to the red zone, which was best in the league. And he did it with a rookie quarterback in Derek Carr."
"The Jaguars’ 32 penalties through four games rank 12th in the NFL, but their 324 penalty yards are third, behind Buffalo (428 on 58 flags) and the New York Jets (336 on 36 flags).Sunday’s opponent, Tampa Bay, is fifth with 319 enforced yards.Nineteen Jaguars players have been called for at least one penalty, led by three apiece for safety James Sample, cornerback Aaron Colvin and right tackle Jermey Parnell.The Jaguars are on pace for 128 penalties for 1,296 yards, far exceeding the totals in Bradley’s first two seasons of 96 for 797 and 73 for 573."
