Top 5 playoff performances in Jacksonville Jaguars’ history
4. Leonard Fournette and Telvin Smith at Pittsburgh – January 14, 2018
It’s okay to laugh after seeing these two names, most people would, and man, that 2017 season seems like it was a decade ago. Nevertheless, these couple of Jaguars put up incredible performances in Pittsburgh that will live forever. It was difficult to choose just one from this game, so Telvin Smith and Leonard Fournette will just have to share it.
Offensively, Fournette was the steadfast freight train that helped a bad Jaguars offense drop 45 points on the Steelers, toting the rock 25 times for 109 yards and three touchdowns.
His two touchdowns early in the game put the Jags up 14-0. When the Steelers found their footing and started coming back, the LSU product was able to find pay dirt once again early in the fourth quarter, making the score 35-21.
On the other side of the ball, Smith had one of the better postseason performances by a Jaguars defender. He may not be with the team or in the league anymore but his 16 total tackle (14 solo), one pass defensed, and a 50-yard fumble recovery returned for a touchdown performance will live forever in the hearts of Jaguar fans.
Smith was all over the field and helped the Jaguars lead 28-7, a score that surely struck real fear in Steeler fans’ hearts. It was completely stunning and by the end of the game, the Jaguars needed every bit of what they received from Smith and Fournette to hold off a valiant comeback effort to win the game 45-42.
