5 Big Questions/5 Bold Predictions: Jaguars vs. New York Jets, Week 2


5 BIG Questions

  • 1.) Can Luke McCown be effective against what are  likely to be some highly exotic blitzes called by Rex Ryan to confuse the newly appointed starter?
  • 2.) Will the Jaguars running game be able to move the ball downfield, even when the Jets vaunted defense knows its coming?
  • 3.) Can the defense repeat the stellar performance last week against Chris Johnson to make the Jets one-dimensional and force Mark Sanchez to beat them?
  • 4.) Can our receivers break away from two of the best man-to-man cornerbacks in the game (Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie)?
  • 5.) Do the Jaguars match the intensity of the Rex Ryan’s riled-up ruffians and find a way to stay in the ring with a premier AFC opponent?

5 BOLD Predictions

  • The Jaguars exceed 40 rushing attempts and 170 rushing yards.
  • Luke McCown throws zero interceptions and two completions of more than 25 yards.
  • Four different Jaguars defenders sack Mark Sanchez.
  • Shonn Greene rushes for less than 50 yards. The Jets finish with less than 100 yards on the ground and no rush TDs.
  • Dawan Landry finishes the game with 8 tackles, 3 passes defensed, and 1 interception.
