The Jacksonville Jaguars are off to a good start in Week 4. They’re already leading 14-0 and the first quarter hasn’t even finished yet. An interception return for a touchdown by safety Andre Cisco got the Jags going.
The Jaguars went three and out on their first drive. The Eagles then got the ball and even converted on fourth-and-1. But things then took an unexpected turn when the Jags’ defense tipped a pass that then Cisco took to the house. Here’s the play in question.
A third-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, Cisco spent most of his rookie campaign on the bench and once he got his chance to start, he showed he should have gotten more playing time. In three starts last season, Cisco forced two fumbles. Before today’s game, he had snagged an interception, one pass defensed, and 16 total tackles.
At Syracuse, Cisco registered 13 interceptions and 14 passes defensed and he most likely slid to the third round due to a torn ACL and other injuries he suffered during his collegiate career.
The Jaguars have quickly taken the lead vs. the Eagles
The Jaguars’ defense is playing well and has done a good job of containing Jalen Hurts and the Eagles’ offense. Besides the pick-6, defensive coordinator Mike Caldwell’s units have forced two punts. Meanwhile, the Jaguars’ offense has already scored. Trevor Lawrence led an eight-play, 80-yard drive that ended on a touchdown pass to Jamal Agnew.
This was always going to be a difficult matchup for the Jags due to the fact that it’s been played at Lincoln Financial Field, one of the most hostile venues in the NFL to visiting teams. Then, it started raining cats and dogs, which makes it difficult to throw the ball.
The weather conditions moved the over/under from 45-47 points to just 43.5. While it’s just a few points, observers believe that this will lead to fewer points on the scoreboard for both teams. However, the Jaguars don’t seem to care about that and are holding up their end of the bargain.
