No. 2 Jaguars loser vs. the Falcons: Tre Herndon, CB

The Jags re-signed Tre Herndon in the offseason because he offers lots of flexibility and ample experience. Even though he can line up in the perimeter, he's currently the team's primary nickel corner and that won't probably change until sophomore Gregory Junior returns from the Injured Reserve.

While Herndon is a fine player, he showed his limitations against the Falcons. He gave up the only touchdown the Falcons scored and he would've allowed another had wide receiver Drake London not been out of bounds in the fourth quarter.

At this point of his career, Herndon might be better suited for a reserve role. It will be interesting if the Jaguars send him to the bench once Junior is healthy.

No. 1 Jaguars loser vs. the Falcons: Parker Washington, WR

Parker Washington had been a healthy scratch this season but injuries to Zay Jones and Jamal Agnew paved the way for him to make his NFL debut in Week 4. In the end, wasn't targeted a single time and left the game when he suffered a knee injury.

Appearing in his first NFL game was an important milestone for Washington but he still has a long way to go before he can make an impact. The former Penn State Nittany Lion got lots of praise from the coaching staff in training camp but once the regular season started, he disappeared.

It's true that the Jaguars are stacked at wide receiver but if they thought Washington could make plays, they would give him more playing time. So far, that hasn't been the case.
