JACKSONVILLE – Every Friday during the 2017 NFL regular season, Jaguars public relations assistant Gaby Moran will bring the five best facts to know about the Jaguars heading into the game on Sunday:
1.Quarterbacks Beware: In Week 3, the Jaguars defense allowed only 64 total passing yards, the second-lowest total passing yards allowed in a game in franchise history (Dec. 3, 2000, vs. Cleveland, 33 passing yards).
2.Luxury Marcedes: Tight end Marcedes Lewis posted three touchdown receptions in the team's 44-7 victory over Baltimore in Week 3. Lewis increased his career touchdown reception total to 31, surpassingwide receivers coach and former wide receiver Keenan McCardell (30; 1996-2001) for the second-most receiving touchdowns in franchise history.
3.Run, Rookie, Run: Running back Leonard Fournette has tallied a rushing TD in each of his first three games, becoming the first rookie, along with Kansas City's Kareem Hunt, to post a rushing touchdown in each of the first three career games since 2000. Fournette needs a touchdown in his next five games to tie former running back Maurice Jones-Drew for most consecutive games with at least one rushing touchdown (eight games) as a rookie in franchise history.
- Team Takeaway: The Jaguars scored 21 points off of three takeaways against Baltimore in Week 3. So far this season, the Jaguars have totaled 37 points from turnovers, the most in the NFL. Jacksonville needs at least one takeaway that leads to a score against the New York Jets for the most points off of turnovers though the first four games of the season in franchise history.
- Interception Perception: Cornerbacks A.J. Bouye and Jalen Ramsey each intercepted a pass from Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco in Week 3, marking the eighth time the Jaguars have had two interceptions in a game in the past five years. In 2017, the Jaguars have totaled four interceptions, tied for the third-most in the NFL, trailing Baltimore (8) and Detroit (7).
