The Jacksonville Jaguars visited the Indianapolis Colts in the season opener and they left with their first win of the 2023 season. There were many things to like, including wide receiver Calvin Ridley's amazing debut after his NFL hiatus. On the other hand, there a few things the Jags will need to work on the next few weeks if they want to keep the winning going.
Similarly, there are a handful of players who will need to step up after a not-so-great outing in the season opener. With that in mind, here are three Jaguars whose stock is down following the 31-21 win over Indianapolis.
No. 3 Jaguars whose stock is down after Week 1 win vs. the Colts: Andre Cisco, S
It may be a bit odd to say that safety Andre Cisco's stock is down after forcing a fumble that defensive tackle Angelo Blackson later recovered. However, there were a few instances in which he was out of place and wasn't in a position to make plays, especially against the run.
However, Cisco's biggest mistake came early in the game, when he was flagged for unnecessary roughness. Although tight end Drew Ogletree had already gotten the first down, Cisco's penalty gave the Colts an extra 15 yards.
Cisco made up for it the very next play by dislodging the football from third-string running back Deon Jackson. Defensive tackle Angelo Blackson recovered it and the offense took the field. You could make the case that the turnover nullifies the mistake. However, he needs to clean up that kind of mistakes if he's going to have the breakout season he's expected to have.
