  • For the first time in the Doug Pederson era, the Jaguars were in victory formation — meaning snaps for C.J. Beathard, Tyler Shatley, and Walker Little.
  • Tim Jones didn’t see a target in his four snaps, but he did play 54% of the special teams snaps, proving how critical he is to the team’s special teams unit. He was the team’s best backup on the outside and recorded one tackle.
  • Zay Jones out-snapped Marvin Jones for the first time this season, a potential reflection of the Jaguars riding the hot hand at wide receiver. Jones was the Jaguars’ leader in targets, catches and yards. He also converted his first downs/touchdowns in his best Jaguar game.
  • James Robinson is going to be the workhorse of the Jaguars’ offense until the wheels fall off. Robinson has been consistently given more and more volume of snaps and touches since he proved in Week 1 that he was healthy, and he responded with 100 yards on the ground and a key 50-yard touchdown on fourth-down.
  • While Travis Etienne isn’t seeing the same snaps as James Robinson, he is still getting the ball quite a bit when he is on the field. He had 16 touches (13 carries, three catches) for 75 yards and was even featured in a newly-used Wildcat package.

Defense (61 snaps)

FS Andre Cisco: 61 (100%)

SS Rayshawn Jenkins: 61 (100%)

CB Tyson Campbell: 61 (100%)

CB Darious Williams: 61 (100%)

LB Foyesade Oluokun: 61 (100%)

LB Devin Lloyd: 61 (100%)

CB Tre Herndon: 51 (84%)

OLB Travon Walker: 51 (84%)

OLB Josh Allen: 51 (84%)

DL Arden Key: 31 (51%)

DL Dawuane Smoot: 30 (49%)

DL Roy Robertson-Harris: 26 (43%)

DL Foley Fatukasi: 26 (43%)

DL DaVon Hamilton: 20 (33%)

DL Adam Gotsis: 18 (30%)

OLB K’Lavon Chaisson: 4 (7%)

  • The Jaguars showed us their plan for when a starting cornerback goes down; with Shaquill Griffin out with a hip injury, the Jaguars started nickel cornerback Darious Williams and kept him on the field for every single snap, previously Griffin’s role. At times, Williams remained in the slot against three-receiver looks as Treherndon took over the role of a defensive lineman.
  • Dawuane Smoot and Arden Key each out-snapped the Jaguars’ starting base defensive linemen — not just one of them, but all three of DaVon Hamilton, Foley Fatukasi and Roy Robertson-Harris. The Chargers ran the ball just 12 times, but they rarely ever threatened the run with their formations, either.
  • Only three defensive players have played 100% of the snaps through Week 3: Rayshawn Jenkins, Andre Cisco and Foyesade Oluokun. Devin Lloyd, a rookie Chad Muma’s replacement, missed seven snaps while Tyson Campbell missed one.
