No. 4 Jaguars winner vs. the Falcons in Week 4: Christian Kirk, WR
It was great to see wide receiver Calvin Ridley score a touchdown against his former team. His 30-yard reception in the second drive of the game gave the Jaguars their first seven points of the game. that said, you could make a strong case that Christian Kirk had a bigger impact in Week 4.
After registering just one reception for nine yards in the opener, Kirk has been significantly more involved on the offense in recent weeks. Back in Week 2, he had 11 receptions for 110 yards. Against Atlanta, he caught eight receptions for 84 yards. He could've had an even better outing if Trevor Lawrence hadn't been flushed out of the pocket and missed him in the Falcons' red zone.
Kirk, for his part, believes beating the Falcons was a step in the right direction but thinks that there are a few things the offense can do better moving forward:
"You kind of felt that we were gonna get back on track of where we needed to be, and just go out there and be ourselves," Kirk told the media after the game. "And I thought we did that. But I still think we have a long way to go to be a really good offense. There are still some mistakes and some things that we didn't do as well today, but we're able to make enough plays to go out there and get enough points to get a win," Kirk said.
No. 3 Jaguars winner vs. the Falcons: Darious Williams, CB
The Jaguars intercepted Falcons quarterback Desmond Ridder twice and one of them was returned for a touchdown. Make no mistake, both were important but the pick 6 had a bigger impact for a couple reasons.
For starters, it helped the Jags make it 17-0 but more importantly, it was cornerback Darious Williams' first interception donning the Black and Teal. Although he led the team in passes defensed with 16 last season, he didn't register a single interception.
After the game, Williams met with the local media and credited the interception on watching tape during the week:
"We knew they're a good, quick game team," Willaims said. "We're in main coverage pretty much, so I got my look. I saw Tre Herndon go out, he kind of slowed him down for me and I just jumped in."
