These 3 players gave the Jaguars a chance to win in Week 10.

1. James Robinson, running back. 

Second-year running back James Robinson suited up against the Colts after missing Week 9 with a heel injury. The former Redbird was listed as questionable ahead of the game and was a game-time decision but ultimately played.

Although Robinson had a limited workload, he made the most of his carries, toting the rock 12 times for 57 yards and one touchdown. Before his injury, he was among the NFL rushing leaders and should get a bigger workload against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 11.

2. Tyson Campbell, cornerback.

The Jaguars’ coaching staff has stood behind rookie Tyson Campbell even though he’s struggled at times. Looking at this performance in Week 10, it’s easy to see why. The former Georgia Bulldog finished the game with five total tackles and one pass defensed, a pass attempt on third-and-4. The Colts went on to punt on the next play

Also, Campbell didn’t give up a big play, allowing just three receptions on six targets for 28 yards. During the preseason, the rookie corner had a rough time playing the ball but has made strides throughout the season. The Jaguars’ trust in him seems to be paying off.

3. Taven Bryan, defensive tackle. 

Defensive tackle Taven Bryan consistently applied pressure in the interior for the second consecutive game. Who would have thought before the start of the season when he seemed at risk of either being released or traded?

Bryan has taken advantage of his chances to make plays after being made inactive in Week 6. After having arguably the best game of his career in Week 9, the 29th overall pick in the 2018 draft had two quarterback hits and frequently got the best of Colts guard Quenton Nelson. Moreover, he posted a Pro Football Focus overall grade of 82.5, the highest among Jaguars’ defenders in Week 10.
