Something about this play that I haven't seen addressed anywhere: Lewis had three blockers in front of him, so why was he shifting toward the outside of the right-most blocker, instead of staying basically centered behind the three of them? The fumble might not even happen if he'd done that.I said the same thing when watching. Wondered why he didn't speed up and head down the sideline where blockers had it sealed. He instead slowed down and ran more towards the center of the field(not completely just more right than left towards the sidelines behind the bevy of blockers).
I'm wondering if he might've been getting a little antsy, thinking that his blockers were going too slow, and was thinking of darting past them and maybe surprising the defense?
I thought the same thing, but my guess is that Lewis didn't realize Jack was right behind him. He probably knew that someone was sort of trailing him, but he didn't realize the guy was literally RIGHT BEHIND him. As a result, Lewis thought of bouncing out while the defenders in front of him merged towards the sideline, and then got strip-tackled by Jack.
That's a credit to that JAX defense. They are a fast, speedy group, and Jack caught up to Lewis there. Myles Jack definitely caused a lot of problems for the Pats on Sunday, that's for sure.
