Winning is great in the NFL. It's even better if it's against a division opponent, and the Jacksonville Jaguars are surely on cloud nine following their 37-20 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. Given that the Jags next face the New Orleans Saints on Thursday Night Football, they won't have much time to celebrate. However, they had several accomplishments worth praising in Week 6.
For starters, the Colts' losing streak as visitors extended to nine games. On top of that, they got swept by the Jags. This was the first time since 207 that Jacksonville pulled off the feat. But as good as it felt to beat their AFC foes twice this season, here are other important milestones the Jaguars accomplished in Week 6.
3. Tyler Shatley plays 134th consecutive game with the Jaguars in Week 6
The Jaguars experienced lots of losing in the 2010 and only one winning season in the 2010. Offensive lineman Tyler Shatley, who's been with the team since 2014, went through all of it.
In Week 6, Shatley appeared in his 134th consecutive game. This is noteworthy when you take into account that players often miss games and the average NFL career lasts around three years. Although the former Clemson Tiger doesn't have as much recognition as Trevor Lawrence or outside linebacker Josh Allen, he's been on the roster longer than both of them and pretty much any of his teammates. Following the game, Shatley said it was awesome to play for that long and to be healthy, via Mia O'Brien of 1010 XL.
In a sport in which teams undergo significant turnover on a yearly basis, it's impressive to see Shatley remain with the Jaguars for so long.
