The Jacksonville Jaguars are coming off an extremely disappointing performance in last week’s game against the New England Patriots, in which they were pretty much beat in every asset of the game. Despite the fact that the Jaguars were blown out by the Patriots last week, they are still sitting in a better position then most people expected going into week four.  They have the chance to be 2-2 after four weeks and they are tied for the most wins in the AFC South.

Now its time to break down this weeks matchup against the division rival Indianapolis Colts. The Colts are coming into week 4 after underachieving in their first three games.  This is a team that many people expected to be very dominant and they have yet to live up to those expectations. They could very well be 0-3 and they currently have the most turnovers in the NFL so far.

That being said, the first key to a Jaguars victory is a no brainer.

1. Force Turnovers

Looking at the Colts’s two losses, Andrew Luck threw two interceptions against Buffalo and three interceptions against the Jets. Despite getting the victory against Tennessee, Andrew Luck still threw two interceptions. Turning the ball over is a clear problem for the Colts, as no quarterback in the league as thrown more interceptions than Andrew Luck so far. The Jaguars will need to get a big game out of a secondary that could likely be without  Davon House  but both Dwayne Gratz and Johnathan Cyprien could be returning to the lineup this week. If Johnathan Cyprien does indeed return, then James Sample can move back over to the free safety position, which is where he was supposed to play originally. If the Jaguars want to win this game then they will need their secondary to have a big game in the turnover department. The only Jaguar to get an interception so far this season is linebacker Paul Posluszny but if the Jaguars want to get their second victory of the season then that stat will have to change.
