The Jacksonville Jaguars have now won three games in a row this season. Their latest 37-20 win came against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6. Both teams were 3-2 heading into the game but the Jags now have sole control of the top spot in the AFC South.
You have probably heard that winning in the NFL is not easy but Jacksonville disposed of Indy with relative ease. The Colts got off to a solid start on their first possession but they then got cold for most of the game. By the time they wanted to mount a comeback, the Jags had built a huge lead. Looking back, this was a team effort and these five players had a huge role in the win.
No. 5 Jaguars player who had a huge role in the win vs. the Colts: Travis Etienne, RB
Travis Etienne had a career game against the Buffalo Bills in Week 5, toting the rock 26 times for 136 yards with two touchdowns. He wasn't able to reach the 100-yard mark against the Colts but he found the end zone twice for the second straight week.
By halftime, he had tallied nearly 50 yards, but the Jaguars stopped feeding him the ball because they had built a solid lead. If the game had been closer, the coaching staff would probably have kept Etienne involved but that wasn't the case.
Etienne now has five rushing touchdowns in six weeks. That's as many as he had in 17 games last year. At this pace, don't be surprised if he ends the season with 10.
