Jacksonville Jaguars Savagely Troll Houston Texans After Rare Instance of Not Totally Sucking (PIC)
The Jacksonville Jaguars absolutely dominated the Houston Texans on Sunday. That was as strange for me to write as it was for you to read. And yet it is true.
The Jags’ offense was okay. Blake Bortles was Blake Bortlesy, going just 11/21 passing, but he didn’t throw any interceptions. Meanwhile, the offensive line somehow kept J.J. Watt and Jadaveon Clowney at bay, creating enough openings for Leonard Fournette (100 yards), Chris Ivory (42 yards), and Bortles (13 yards) to run for 155 yards. However, it was the Jags defense that won the game.
The Jags defense was simply outstanding on Sunday. They recorded an insane 10 sacks and forced four turnovers. Six of the sacks came against starter Tom Savage, while the other four came against rookie DeShaun Watson, who replaced Savage and his 7.8 QBR in the second half. Defensive tackle Calais Campbell had four sacks all by himself, while defensive end Yannick Ngakoue had another two. The remaining sacks came from Malick Jackson, Dante Fowler, Lerentee McCray, and Abry Jones.
Obviously, nobody is accustomed to seeing words like “outstanding” applied to the Jacksonville Jaguars. So you can forgive the social media team for getting a little cocky and trolling the poor Texans after the game.
Take a look:
Did you see it? Here, look closer:
Yep. The social media intern changed their name from Jacksonville to #Sacksonville.
It’s pretty clever, really. They will have to change it back after Week 6 or so, when the Jags are 1-5. But for now, let them enjoy it.
It’s Monday morning after our win over the Texans and @dantefowler wants to hear you yell…
