Statistically Speaking: Friday Five

20181108-stats

In Week 10, Jacksonville travels to Indianapolis on Sunday to face the Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium at 1 p.m. ET. Here are five stats surrounding Sunday’s matchup:

Lambo’s Leg: When Jacksonville travels to Indianapolis this weekend, K Josh Lambo will return to the stadium where he began his Jaguars career last season. Lambo’s Jaguars debut came on Oct. 22, 2017 at Lucas Oil Stadium where he made three PATs and two FGs in a 27-0 victory. Since then, Lambo has made 31 of 32 FGs and is coming off perhaps the best performance of his career in Week 8 against Philadelphia, which was highlighted by two FGs from 50-plus yards. Entering Week 10, Lambo has made a franchise-record 23 consecutive FGs and looks to extend the streak this Sunday.

Duval’s Damage: RB T.J. Yeldon raced for a career-long 58-yard TD run against the Colts last season (Oct. 22, 2017) and he isn’t the only Jaguar to have had success against Indianapolis during their careers. DE Yannick Ngakoue has recorded 4.5 sacks in four career games against the Colts, highlighted by a career-high-tying 2.5 sacks last time Jacksonville was in Indianapolis. QB Blake Bortles has also been impressive against Indianapolis, throwing for 300-plus yards in three straight games against the Colts.

Indy Familiarity: Jaguars WR Donte Moncrief will play in his 28th game at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday; however, it will be his first game there in a Jaguars uniform. Moncrief was drafted by Indianapolis in the third round (90th overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft and played in 53 games for Indianapolis, totaling 1,875 receiving yards and 18 TDs. Moncrief has started all eight games for Jacksonville this season and is responsible for the Jaguars’ longest TD of the year, a 67-yard TD reception in Week 4 against the Jets.

Third Quarter Begins: Jacksonville begins the third quarter of the season against Indianapolis, which looks to be a pivotal stretch. The third quarter features two matchups against the Colts (Week 10 and 13), a home game against the Steelers (Week 11) and a trip to Buffalo in Week 12. Last season, the Jaguars went 3-1 in the third quarter of the season en route to their first playoff berth since 2007.

Campbell’s Consistency: DL Calais Campbell recorded the fifth sack of his 2018 campaign in the second quarter of Jacksonville’s Week 8 game against Philadelphia. Campbell, who has sacked 42 total quarterbacks, and Panthers DE Julius Peppers (2008-17) are the only active players with 10 consecutive seasons of 5.0-plus sacks. The 11-year veteran has especially been a force since joining the Jaguars, totaling 11.0 sacks against AFC South opponents. Campbell looks to continue his disruption against a Colts offense that hasn’t allowed a sack over the past three games.

Every Friday during the 2018 season, Jaguars Public Relations Assistant David Wolf will write five key stats about the Jaguars’ upcoming game. A Chapel Hill, N.C. native, Wolf joined the Jacksonville Jaguars in May 2018.
