Thoughts on Jaguars 13, Falcons 9
By Paul Kuharsky
Some bullet-point thoughts on the Jaguars’ 13-9 preseason win over Atlanta on Thursday night.
- With Anthony Smith among the players held out, Courtney Greene got a start at strong safety. He nailed running back Antone Smith, forcing and recovering a fumble. The Jaguars forced three fumbles, recovering two.
- Rookie fullback Brock Bolen completed his bid for a roster spot with a 16-yard scoring run, the only touchdown of the game.
- Josh Scobee hit field goals of 40 and 49 yards to complete a perfect preseason (nine of nine).
- Jacksonville’s average drive start was the 32-yard line, 10 yards better than Atlanta’s.
- The offense was just three for 14 on third down.
- The defense didn’t record a sack.
