The adjustment from college football to the NFL can’t be overstated. And, Jacksonville Jaguars rookie running back Tank Bigsby seemed pretty overwhelmed when a huge mental mistake led to a Colts touchdown.
It wasn’t entirely his fault, as the Jaguars offensive line got whipped, leading to a strip-sack of franchise quarterback Trevor Lawrence. But, what happened after was definitely his fault. Take a look.
Don't mind us, we'll be taking this.

Oh no. There were no whistles blown! You’ve got to play until the whistle!
Tank Bigsby with the dumbest play ever

Bigsby picked it up and then just didn’t do anything even tho there was no whistle. Buddy now responsible for 2 turnovers. Get his ass on the bench until he decided to get his head on the professional level.

Don’t worry, Jaguars fans. The Auburn product redeemed himself with a big fourth quarter touchdown.

And, the Jags rallied for 31-21 win to open their season at 1-0.
