Jack had five tackles (two solo) and his first sack of the season in Sunday's loss to the Eagles in London.
The two solo tackles tied his lowest total of the season as Jack continues to be difficult to rely on as an IDP option. The 23-year-old ranks second on the team 52 tackles (35 solo) heading into Jacksonville's bye in Week 9.
Jack recorded seven tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 20-7 loss to the Texans.
Jack started the season strong with 18 tackles through the first two games, but has otherwise been fairly inconsistent. The 23-year-old does rank second on the team with 48 tackles (34 solo) through seven weeks, as the Jags get set to take on the defending-champion Eagles on Sunday.
Jack had eight tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 31-20 win over the Patriots.
Jack and Telvin Smith combined for 16 tackles as the interior of the Jaguars defense helped hold the Patriots to five yards per play. The 23-year-old currently leads the Jags with 18 tackles (14 solo) and an interception, and he has a worthwhile matchup against run-heavy Tennessee next Sunday.
Jack wracked up 10 tackles and an interception for a touchdown in Sunday's 20-15 win over the Giants.
Jack's pick six came in the fourth quarter with the Giants only trailing by four points. The score gave Jacksonville a two score lead and proved the be the game icing points. The 10 tackles Jack recorded were his second-most in a single game. He's a big part of what has been a dominant Jaguars' defense and will look to continue his strong play when the Patriots come to Jacksonville in Week 2.
Jack played 97.9 percent of the Jaguars' defensive snaps last season, but his role as the strong-side linebacker in the base defense -- alongside Telvin Smith and Paul Posluszny -- wasn't especially conductive to tackle opportunities. With Posluszny retiring, Jack will slide over to a more favorable position in the middle while Blair Brown likely takes over on the strong side in the base defense. Given that he's also locked in next to Smith in nickel packages, Jack shouldn't have much trouble improving on last year's mark of 5.6 tackles per game. Smith and Jack may soon form the best linebacker duo in the NFL, if they didn't already last season. Jack's ankle injury from the playoffs doesn't seem to be an issue.
