1. What's next for the Jaguars after beating the Falcons?
It was good to see the Jaguars return to .500 after beating the Falcons. You could make the case that expectations surrounding them before the start of the season were a bit too high but games like this show they're capable of playing at a high level and winning games. That said, there's still room for improvement.
The offensive line gave Trevor Lawrence good protection early in the game but the group struggled in the second half. This had a negative impact on Lawrence's decision-making. He had to leave the pocket and roll often because he wasn't getting enough time to throw the ball. In the fourth quarterback, he could've hit a wide-open Christian Kirk but he couldn't because the Falcons flushed him out of the pocket and forced him to throw in the move. The good news is that left tackle Cam Robinson is back from the four-game suspension he served to start the season.
There's a good chance he'll return to left tackle and the coaching staff will move Walker Little to left guard. While Robinson has not played since last year — he suffered a meniscus injury late in the season — his return should give the Jaguars' offensive line a boost.
The pass rush also cooled down in the second half. Although Josh Allen and Travon Walker had a combined four sacks early in the game, they were somewhat quiet in the second half until Allen had a strip sack near the end of the game.
The bottom line is that the Jaguars did enough to beat Atlanta but it may not suffice against the Buffalo Bills. They must build on this week's win and look for ways to improve their play in the trenches.
