Jacksonville Jaguars: 3 Studs and 3 duds from Week 9’s loss
These Jacksonville Jaguars contributed to the team’s loss.
Rookie C.J. Henderson struggled for the second consecutive game. Against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 7, the first-year cornerback allowed eight receptions for 103 yards. He didn’t fare much better in Week 9 and gave up a 77-yard touchdown pass.
Furthermore, Henderson shoved Texans wide receiver Will Fuller V and was flagged for pass interference that set up a David Johnson touchdown late in the second quarter. The Florida Gator can’t keep making those mistakes.
We are singling Joe Schobert out on this one, but the Jaguars linebacker corps couldn’t stop the run and had struggled with short and intermediate routes. Even though ’47’ finished the game with six total tackles and was credited with half a sack, he failed to make impact plays.
Moreover, Schobert was flagged for pushing Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson even though he was already out of the field. The linebacker’s unnecessary-roughness penalty kept a Texans’ drive alive that ended in a field goal.
Running back James Robinson scored the ‘Jags’ second touchdown of the game and tied the game 13-13 in the second quarter. This Jacksonville could’ve taken the lead had Josh Lambo made the extra-point attempt.
That failed attempt came back to haunt the ‘Jags’ at the end of the game. Had Lambo nailed it, the team would have needed another extra point instead of a two-point conversion to tie the game, down 27-25.
