Running backs: C+
From a high to a low. Honestly, they weren’t terrible and the attention they were given by the defense opened up holes for Mariota to throw. It also should be said that the receivers ran free on a few plays because of the hard play action fakes that Mariota was giving.
Let’s be honest here. The Jaguars DID NOT want to end up with another highlight reel of a Titans runner stiff arming them or making them cry. It is a painful memory for them and I get it.
After Ramsey got ran over trying to crawl between Henry’s legs and after Marcus Mariota stiff armed Barry Church, the Jaguars were driving on everything and good for them. They got out of this game without a devastating GIF.
Henry takes a lot of energy to get down and if you can ever get him into space no one will catch him and take him down. The real hero in that backfield is Lewis though.
Dion Lewis averaged 3.3 yards per touch, but felt effective in live action.
I think there was more meat on the bone for these RBs, but they did enough to keep the Titans out of 3rd and long.
