Jaguars’ Calais Campbell stops Titans drive in red zone with 4th-down sack

Calais Campbell, Jaguars, Titans

The Jacksonville Jaguars have shrugged off the rust they showed in their first two weeks. They used their defense to dominate the Tennessee Titans. Calais Campbell led the charge.

Calais Campbell forced the Titans to commit a turnover on downs after putting on a defensive masterclass and sacking Marcus Mariota before making the pass.

The situation was fourth down and sixth at the start of the third quarter. The Titans haven’t scored in the first half and are forcing their way to the end zone by making the play.

The Jaguars didn’t want them to have their way and committed six players on pass defense. The play was snapped, and Mariota began looking for a wide receiver to pass the ball to.

However, the Jaguars defensive line put the pressure on him. The Titans O-line collapsed as they fell to the pressure put on by Jacksonville. Campbell managed to break free of his marker and got to Mariota’s hips before he had set his feet and threw the football.

Campbell came out and said that this year is a lot different compared to the previous year. He called for the team to gather together and show a better performance against the Titans.

That’s exactly what they’ve been doing, and the defense had a lot to do with the final score. This is a result that Campbell and many Jaguar fans should be happy with.
