26 ก.พ. 2567 09:47

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Shaquill Griffin wont enjoy rewatching Jacksonvilles fifth consecutive lo s at Indianapolis.The veteran cornerback was picked on repeatedly by Cassius Stanley Jersey the Colts and in a Sunday. It was Griffins worst performance in two years with the Jaguars and should be a clear sign that general manager Trent Baalke needs to start looking to upgrade the all-important coverage position.Griffin is the teams highest-paid player, making $11.5 million in guaranteed salary this season and counting $16.4 million against the salary cap. He signed a three-year, $40 million contract in free agency in 2021 and looked like a lockdown cornerback at times last season.But he was the defenses weakest link Sunday, unable to cover Michael Pittman or Parris Campbell. He with the game on the line.The Colts trailed 27-26 with 23 seconds remaining and were in position for a long field goal. Instead of running the ball, Indianapolis took a shot deep. Rookie Alec Pierce had a step on Griffin when Matt JaKarr Sampson Jersey Ryan lofted the pa s toward the end zone. Pierce caught it at the 5, with Griffin watching helple sly from the turf.That one hurt, Griffin said.Griffin also was flagged twice for pa s interference, with both penalties setting up touchdowns. The first one came on a third-and-long play.I feel like we had a lot of plays where we kind of hurt ourselves, he said. I just felt like every time were looking to get off the field on third down, we kind of shot ourselves in the foot. Those are things you cant get back, and its tough. ... That was on us.Griffin and the Jaguars (2-4), who have lost three in a row, get a chance to end their skid when they host the New York Giants (5-1) on Sunday. Jacksonville has dropped an NFL-record 18 straight to NFC teams.WHATS WORKINGJacksonville finished with 243 yards rushing, the fifth-most in franchise history and the teams most in a lo s. The ground game helped take some pre sure off struggling quarterback Trevor Lawrence and kept the Colts off-balance during an 18-play, 84-yard drive that took 12 minutes off the clock in the fourth quarter and gave the Jags a lead their defense ultimately squandered.Weve just got to find a way to finish, coach Doug Pederson said.WHAT NEEDS HELPThe Jaguars were held without a sack for the first time this season. Indy provided a blueprint for beating Goga Bitadze Jersey Jacksonvilles aggre sive front: quick pa ses that prevent edge rushers Josh Allen and rookie Travon Walker from being too disruptive. It was a complete turnaround from the previous two meetings in which Jacksonville notched a combined 11 sacks.STOCK UPSecond-year pro Travis Etienne had a career-high 88 yards rushing, highlighted on Jacksonvilles opening drive. Etienne played more snaps than James Robinson for the third straight week, although hes still looking for his first career touchdown.Etienne had 114 total yards 71 rushing and 43 receiving last week against Houston.You guys see how hard he runs. Obviously, his speed helps us lots, Lawrence said.STOCK DOWNWalker, the overall No. 1 pick in Aprils draft, had a costly penalty for the second straight week. He was flagged for roughing the pa ser on a third-and-12 play an incomplete pa s that gave Doug McDermott Jersey the Colts a new set of downs and helped set up a third-quarter touchdown.A week earlier, Walker to sed Texans quarterback Davis Mills to the ground long after the whistle, drawing a 15-yard penalty for unnece sary roughne s and turning a third-and-20 play into a first down. Houston found the end zone seven plays later.INJUREDAgnew injured his right knee but was able to return. Defensive tackle Foley Fatukasi (quadriceps) and receiver Marvin Jones (hamstring) could return after being inactive against the Colts.KEY NUMBER18 The number of consecutive lo ses by the Jaguars against NFC teams. Their last NFC victory came in the 2018 season opener at the New Brian Bowen Jersey York Giants. The Jaguars can end the skid against the Giants.NEXT STEPSThe Jaguars have made the playoffs just once (in 1996) in franchise history after losing at least three in a row during the regular season.___More AP NFL: hub/nfl and and AP_NFL in this topic
