5. What’s your take on this match-up and your final prediction?
"Honestly, Bortles has the potential, but the team is too young. Carolina 31. Jacksonville 6."
This gave me a hearty chuckle.
First of all, the Jaguars only scored less than 6 points once in 2014. The offense is significantly improved this year and they are facing a shorthanded Carolina defense. I don’t see how Carolina is going to shut down a Jacksonville offense that has more than enough weapons to get in the red zone consistently.
Second of all, how is Carolina going to score 31 points? Unless Chris is predicting a record breaking game from Stewart or Olsen, Cam Newton doesn’t really have a ton of options around him to help him score points.
Predicting a win is one thing, but saying this is going to be a blowout is just unwarranted confidence in a team that had a losing record in 2014.
