2. Jaguars S Andrew Wingard keeps their streak of games with turnovers alive vs. Steelers
Turnovers have been a topic of discussion for the Jaguars' defense dating back to last year. They won several games because of key takeaways and they're doing more of the same this season. Linebacker Foyesade Oluokun told the media not long ago that he and his teammates have talked about the importance of creating turnovers since the offseason.
Coincidentally, Oluokun had a pick-six against the New Orleans Saints in Week 7. When defensive coordinator Mike Caldwell was asked if the veteran linebacker and team captain had done anything different in preparation for the game, he said that he didn't. They've simply put in the work and they're ripping the rewards.
In Week 8, the Jaguars kept their streak of games creating turnovers alive. Safety Andre Cisco, who's been dealing with a hamstring injury, missed the game. In his pace, team captain Andrew Wingard started opposite to Rayshawn Jenkins. Right off the bat, Dewey showed up was up to the challenge, and registered a clutch interception in the fourth quarter.
It was encouraging to see Andrew Wingard make a play because the Jaguars are proving that anyone can make plays, not just Cisco, Oluokun or Josh Allen. They have enough difference-makers on defense that anyone can make a play at any given time.
