Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence leads studs that made Week 6 win possible
Three more Jaguars that played a key role against the Dolphins.
4. Marvin Jones, wide receiver.
Jamal Agnew wasn’t the only wide receiver that made plays for the Jaguars in Week 6. In fact, you could make the case Marvin Jones Jr. had a bigger impact, hauling in seven receptions for 100 yards and a 28-yard touchdown reception.
The 2012 fifth-round pick has quickly become Trevor Lawrence’s favorite target, catching a team-high 28 receptions for 343 yards and three touchdowns. The two-year, $14.5 million looks like a bargain in retrospect.
5. Josh Allen, outside linebacker, defensive end.
There’s more to a pass rush than just sacks and Josh Allen showed it against the Miami Dolphins. The 2019 first-round pick posted a monster 92.9 Pro Football Focus grade in the strength of seven total tackles, and six pressures. Although he didn’t log a sack, his impact was felt in the game.
His more important play of the game might have been the defense’s last one. He and Chappelle Russell tackled Dolphins running back Malcom Brown for no gain on fourth-and-one and got the ball back for the offense, which allowed the Jaguars to make the game-winning football.
6. Matthew Wright, kicker.
This wasn’t going to be an easy game and it was going to come down to a few key plays, including the aforementioned stop and the 12-yard pass from Trevor Lawrence that helped set Matthew’s Wright 53-yard field goal attempt not long after.
The team couldn’t elevate Wright from the practice squad any longer, so they signed him to the active roster before the game. Their trust paid off and he made two 50+ field goals, including the game-winner, in a span of fewer than four minutes.
