The Jacksonville Jaguars offense isn’t at fault for the loss.
Right out of the gate, D.J. Chark showed how much of a difference-maker he was going to be against the Texans. His 73-yard touchdown pass is his longest cath this season. Although rookie Laviska Shenault Jr. left the game with a hamstring injury, the third-yard wideout kept the ‘Jags’ offense rolling.
Chark ended the game with seven receptions for 146 yards and one touchdown. All in all, he was a reliable target and Jacksonville’s leading receiver in Jake Luton’s debut.
Rookie James Robinson had a solid game despite falling one yard short of the 100-yard mark. The rookie racked up a season-high 25 carries and amassed 99 rushing yards and a touchdown. He ran hard and constantly helped the ‘Jags’ move the chains.
On the other hand, this was the first time this season that the Illinois State standout didn’t record a catch. Jake Luton targeted him twice, but he failed to haul in either one.
Jaguars quarterback Jake Luton had a solid game against the Texans. In his first NFL start, he went 26-of-38 for 304 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. Also, he had a 13-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter that gave the ‘Jags’ a chance to tie the game.
Luton had some mistakes, but the positives outweighed the negatives. The coaching staff should be eager to work with him this upcoming week and see whether he will part of the organization’s long-term future.
