Dallas Cowboys: Inside the numbers for Week 15

The Dallas Cowboys (10-3) finish off their run through the AFC South when they travel to the Sunshine State to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars (5-8) this Sunday afternoon at TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville. Here is a look inside some of the numbers the Jaguars will bring into this week’s game.

5 – The Jaguars come into Sunday with five more takeaways than turnovers, which is good enough for sixth-best in the NFL this season. The Jacksonville defense has 10 interceptions – led by Andre Cisco with three, and 10 fumble recoveries, led by Devin Lloyd and Foyesade Oluokun with two each. Offensively, with 15 turnovers, the Jaguars are tied with Dallas and five other teams for 11th in the NFL. Trevor Lawrence has thrown six interceptions, while three Jaguars lead the way with two fumbles each.

8 – This will be the eighth time the two teams have met since the Jaguars joined the NFL in 1995. The Cowboys have won four of the seven previous meetings, including the last – a 40-7 drubbing at AT&T Stadium in 2018. The teams split the only two meetings in Jacksonville, with the Cowboys winning the last meeting in Florida, 31-17, in the 2014 season.

50.4 – One thing the Jaguars have been good at all season is punting. Logan Cooke is currently third in the NFL in average yards per punt with just under 51 yards per blast. He has punted 44 times this season, with 14 fielded or downed inside the opponent’s 20-yard line. His 43.8 net yard average is sixth in the league, just over three yards behind the leader.

142 – Jacksonville linebacker Foyesade Oluokun is a tackling machine. The fifth-year pro out of Yale has 102 solo tackles to lead the NFL through 13 games. His 142 total tackles also leads the NFL. Oluokun, who was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in 2018, had 192 total tackles last season, his last with the Falcons.

294 – That is how many points the Jaguars have scored on offense and given up on defense through 13 games this season. The Jaguars have scored 33 touchdowns, converted four 2-point tries, and kicked 25 extra points and 21 field goals. Their opponents have scored 34 touchdowns, converted four 2-point tries, and kicked 25 extra points and 19 field goals. If the season ended today, the 0.0-point deferential this season would rank 11th out of 28 seasons.

6,843 – Just 30 games into this professional career, quarterback Trevor Lawrence is already fifth on the Jaguars’ all-time passing yards list with just under 7,000 yards. He is behind Byron Leftwich (9,042), whom he should pass sometime next season. Then he can set his sights on David Garrard (16,003), Blake Bortles (17,646), and Mark Brunell (25,698), whom he could catch in 2027 if Lawrence continues to average 228.1 yards passing per start, his current average, and stays healthy.
