No. 2 Jacksonville Jaguars loser vs. the Steelers in Week 8: Trevor Lawrence, QB

Trevor Lawrence has mostly avoided mistakes this season but he's not impervious to having a slip every now and then. It happened against the Steelers in Week 8. On the Jaguars' fourth possession, the offense got to the Pittsburgh six-yard line with a good chance to leave with points, probably a touchdown. However, Lawrence threw a pass to wide receiver Calvin Ridley in triple coverage and was intercepted. That was Jacksonville's second consecutive drive in which they turned the ball over.

That said, Lawrence wasn't bad. In fact, he went 24-of-32 for 292 yards with one touchdown and one pick. Furthermore, the Jags got the win, which is the bottom line, right? Still, Lawrence would surely like to have that throw in the red zone back.

No. 1 Jacksonville Jaguars loser vs. the Steelers in Week 8: Tank Bigsby, RB

When Travis Etienne left the field, rookie Tank Bigsby had an opportunity to shine. If he delivered, he could've shown he could be trusted. Ultimately, he came crashing down. Not long after Etienne left, Bigsby fumbled the ball. Fortunately for the Jags (not so much for Bigsby), Etienne eventually returned.

Bigsby was supposed to play a complementary role to Etienne but he's failed to execute when called upon. He made a couple of puzzling mistakes in the opener and he proved in Week 8 that he's got a long way to go before the coaching staff can consistently get him involved in the offensive game plan.
