Carson Wentz looked impressive early but failed to sustain that rhythm. He completed just two passes beyond 10 yards en route to a lowly 5.7-yard average depth of target. Wentz threw efficiently from a clean pocket but struggled otherwise, as he completed only 3-of-12 passes for 27 yards when pressured.
Wentz finished with 180 passing yards on 36 dropbacks to complement a 78.1 passer rating.

Jonathan Taylor dominated from the get-go, carrying the ball for 34 yards on the opening snap of the game. His 93 first-quarter yards already matched his season average. As the game went on, however, Taylor struggled to find running lanes, as almost 20% of his attempts went for a loss or no gain. He also caught six passes for just 10 yards as a receiver.

Wide Receivers/Tight Ends
Michael Pittman Jr. is starting to establish himself as a true No. 1 receiver for the Colts, finishing with five receptions for a team-high 71 yards. Three of his catches went for at least 15 yards, including a 27-yard, toe-tapping grab along the sideline.
One of the best offensive lines in the NFL had an off day in pass protection, as the unit gave up 12 pressures and combined for eight total losses. Quenton Nelson, Eric Fisher and Ryan Kelly each allowed pressure on at least 8% of pass-blocking snaps.
Braden Smith fared significantly better on run-blocking snaps and was the only member of the offensive line to grade out above 65.0 on first review.
The Colts' defensive line combined to create 22 pressures, led by rookie Kwity Paye with eight. Paye brought down a scrambling Lawrence for the first sack of his young career. He finished with a team-high 21.2% win rate and earned the highest pass-rush grade on the team on first review.
Dayo Odeyingbo played just eight pass-rush snaps but made the game-saving play, strip-sacking Lawrence on the Jaguars' final drive to seal the win.

Kenny Moore II dominated in the slot, allowing three receptions on eight targets for 10 yards and one first down. He earned an elite coverage grade after forcing three forced incompletions and two defensive stops.
George Odum and T.J. Carrie were the only members of the secondary to allow over 40 yards in coverage. Both defensive backs gave up two first downs and allowed a passer rating over 90.0 when targeted.
Trevor Lawrence struggled in the first half, completing just three passes for 36 yards to start the game. He started to string together some scoring drives in the second half to finish with 162 passing yards. Lawrence was pressured on nearly half of his dropbacks and made two turnover-worthy plays when under duress.
He had recorded the lowest completion percentage on third downs heading into Week 10 and continued that trend, completing 38.5% of his attempts for 67 yards and four first downs.

James Robinson returned to action after being inactive last week but received little to no room to operate on the ground. The second-year running back made the most of his opportunities, carrying the ball 12 times for 57 yards and a score from one-yard out. Robinson was able to break three tackles and gain at least 10 yards on three attempts.
He also proved to be useful as a receiver, catching four passes for 27 yards and one first down.

The Jaguars' receivers had a difficult time handling passes against the Colts, as the three starters each dropped a pass. No receiver eclipsed more than 70 receiving yards in the game. Dan Arnold led the team with 67 receiving yards, followed by Marvin Jones Jr. with 35.
Jamal Agnew made the play of the day for the group, taking a jet sweep and going untouched for a 66-yard touchdown. Agnew was unable to haul in any of his five targets but finished with a team-high 79 rushing yards.

The Jaguars' offensive line conceded 15 pressures, with all five offensive linemen allowing multiple pressures in the game. Cam Robinson gave up four pressures and one sack on 42 pass-blocking snaps. Robinson played better in the run game, recording more positively graded run-blocking plays than negative ones. Robinson earned an 89.2 overall grade, pending review, and will likely be one of the highest-graded offensive linemen in Week 10.

Josh Allen wasn’t able to sack Wentz but has created pressure at an elite rate, notching at least five pressures in five consecutive games. Some of his production was gifted to him, as four of his eight pressures were cleanups, but Allen still won on eight of his 31 pass-rush snaps.
Roy Robertson-Harris finished with five pressures while also beating his defender twice to earn the highest pass-rush grade on the team (91.0) on first review.

Myles Jack and Damien Wilson had a difficult time handling Taylor out of the backfield, as both linebackers made more negatively graded plays against the run than positive ones. This was the main reason for both grading below 62.0 upon first review. Both linebackers allowed at least one reception in coverage, but none of them went for a first down.
Outside of the opening two possessions, the Jaguars' secondary made it difficult for the Colts to move the ball through the air. Every member of the secondary allowed a first down, but none conceded over 50 yards in coverage. The unit combined for four defensive stops, and Tyson Campbell and Shaquill Griffin each forced an incompletion.
