Jacksonville Jaguars Offense: 

In both week 1 and week 2, the Jacksonville Jaguars offense did not look complete, as in week one their passing game looked shaky for the first 3 quarters, and in week two their rushing attack, seamingly could not get going, with their offensive line looking rough in the run game. Week 3 was different for the Jaguars offense, as their offense clicked on all cylinders against the Chargers. Trevor Lawrence did a great job consistently leading the Jaguars down the field, leading the Jaguars to score 38 points against the Chargers. Lawrence took what the defense gave him, having 262 yards, with 3 touchdowns, while completing 28 out of his 39 pass attempts. Jacksonville Jaguars receivers were doing a job finding the holes in the Chargers defense to get catches, with Zay Jones who had 10 receptions for 85 yards and 1 touchdown, Christian Kirk with 6 receptions for 72 yards and 1 touchdown, and Marvin Jones Jr. who had 4 receptions for 33 yards and 1 touchdown. The Jaguars receivers also did a great job getting yardage after the catch, being led by Zay Jones who had 55 yards after the catch. Unlike last week Jacksonville’s rushers did not have to constantly fight through contact, especially James Robinson, who this week had 17 carries for 100 yards, 1 touchdown, averaging 5.9 yards per carry, including a 50 yard touchdown run. 

Indianapolis Colts Defense: 

The Indianapolis Colts defense showed that they are one of the best defensive units in the NFL, by looking very solid against the Kansas City Chiefs, who have one of the offenses in the NFL, holding them to 17 points. The Indianapolis Colts heavily shut down the Chiefs run game, as the Chiefs had 58 yards on 23 carries, averaging 2.5 yards per rush, against the Colts. Even though the Colts did not get too much pressure on Mahomes, the Colts secondary looked very good, which made Patrick Mahomes’ job much harder. Mahomes had 262 yards while completing 20 out of his 35 pass attempts. The Colts defense was very clutch, as after the Colts offense scored a touchdown with 24 seconds left in the game, the Chiefs still had a chance to tie the game, with 3 timeouts remaining. The Chiefs were driving down the field, but Rodney Mcleod intercepted a pass that was tipped by Stephon Gilmore, if that ball was caught the Chiefs would have around a 53 yard field goal, which is makeable. The Colts defense stepped up when needed, which is hard to do when playing against Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.
