TY Hilton calls out Colts offensive line after shutout loss

Tuesday, 24 Oct, 2017

What if we put (the linemen) back there and take those hits? The Cole pass went for 52 yards and another throw to Allen Hurns (5 catches, 101 yards) covered 50 yards, the first 50-yard completions for Bortles this season. New kicker Josh Lambo made both field goals and all three extra points and the Colts longest kickoff return was 36 yards. They won the turnover battle with the Jaguars, but only once drove as deep as the Jags 30 yard line. "Once we get the O-line going and back in rhythm, we will be fine". They outgained the Colts 518-232 (the first time they've surpassed 500 yards since September 20, 1998, against Baltimore), T.J. Yeldon ran for a career-high 122 yards, they sacked quarterback Jacoby Brissett 10 times and quarterback Blake Bortles threw for 330 yards, including a franchise-record 282 in the first half. "They came in here and played their tails off".

"There is a lot to fix, and this one clearly is on my shoulders". "Only thing we did is just win a game". We all know what we signed up for. "There is no other way to go than to stay focused".

They did all that without running back Leonard Fournette (ankle) and center Brandon Linder (illness). Outside of a 36-yard kick return by Quan Bray, the Jaguars took care of business and likely avoided a Monday film session of being dressed down by coordinator Joe DeCamillas. He also finished Week 7 as the defense's leader in tackles with 10, but was singled out by PFF for his superb day in coverage, which earned him an 85.6 in the department.

Typically a defensive player tops the list in Pro Football Focus' weekly game grades for the Jacksonville Jaguars, but that wasn't the case after today's victory over the Indianapolis Colts. We have another game next week. "You get tackled. That is what happens". To make matters worse, the Colts lost starting cornerback Rashaan Melvin and rookie safety Malik Hooker to injury, weakening a secondary that was already quite thin. The Jaguars entered the game ranked eighth in scoring at 26.0 points a game. Against a Colts defense that came into the week ranked last in the National Football League, the Jaguars offense dominated. Indianapolis leads the series 22-11, including 12-5 in Indianapolis and 10-6 in Jacksonville.
