1. Calvin Ridley

The only player in Jacksonville who might be a little disappointed with how the night went is Calvin Ridley. He is the most talented receiver on the team by far but he wasn't used as much in this game vs the Saints.

Ridley is going to be Lawrence's number-one target in most games but that wasn't the case at the Super Dome on Thursday Night Football. He certainly provides a good decoy on every play no matter what but this was far from a productive game for him.

For one, Ridley had a carry but he didn't get any yards on the play. In the receiving game, he only made one reception on four targets and it was for a gain of five yards. That is not the production that we are used to seeing from Ridley at any point in time.

We know that he is going to have a bounce-back performance but this game just wasn't it for him. At this point, however, he just has to be happy playing for a winning team again. He knows what it is like playing in big games being a former Alabama Crimson Tide and more big games could be coming.

Jacksonville will take their 5-2 record into Pittsburgh where they will play a good Pittsburgh Steelers team next week. No matter what, winning the game is all that is important and these guys all do what they can to make sure it happens.
