With one of Jacksonville's two sacks on the night, Alualu shined on a very good Jacksonville front four. This defensive tackle was instrumental in stopping a lot of iso-type runs by controlling his gap and forcing Vick Ballard to cut back, which the running back has trouble doing.
Mincey did an even better job than Alualu tonight and hurried Andrew Luck into making a would-be interception (the play was called back on a roughing the passer call, but Mincey was aggressive and would have made a nice play). Past that, the defensive end set the edge and forced running backs to run vertically early in the play.
Lane was caught looking in the backfield a few times on reverse plays and had some mental lapses, but still had a solid game rushing the passer on the night. Lane picked up a sack and also forced a fumble, but outside of those that, his impact was somewhat minimal.
Mosley wasn't involved in many tackles, but he was a dominant presence on the inside and required a number of double teams. This defensive tackle's good play helped the Jaguars keep a lot of runs within two yards of the line of scrimmage and he is an unheralded hero.
