Even without Leonard Fournette, the Jaguars still dominated a weak Colts team that can’t seem to catch a break. The Jaguars bumped themselves up to 4-3 on the season and heading into the bye week. This game was controlled by the Jags in all aspects of the game.

While the Jags head into their bye week, they will be able to rest and allow Fournette to heal up from an ankle injury to get him back for Week 9.

Both the offense and defense clicked.

Blake Bortles had himself an excellent game with 330 yards through air with one touchdown to Marcedes Lewis. Bortles needed to show consistency and he produced.

T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory carried the running game, but it was Yeldon who stood out. On nine carries, Yeldon had 122 yards on the ground a rushing touchdown. It’s safe to say that the running game is just fine without Fournette. Ivory added on 47 yards and a touchdown himself.

This defense….once again, just outstanding. Ten sacks once again and did not let up any points. Doug Marrone and Todd Wash are building this defense to an elite status. It’s unbelievable of what they have done as a unit and nothing should be expected less of them moving forward.

Heading into their bye week, there are factors they will need to keep an eye on.

1.) Get Fournette back

Get their number one back on the field and let him dominate.

2.) Keep the intensity going

They cannot let up the determination that they have right now.

3.) Keep playing smart football

We all know what this team is capable of when they get going. If they stay healthy and play their game, expect this team to keep going forward and making progress.
