2. Run the ball effectively
With the hiring of new offensive coordinator Greg Olson, the Jaguars have made it known that they want to lean on the rushing attack but they have yet to excel in that department. Jaguars rookie running back T.J. Yeldon has yet to have a break out game, he only has 154 yards on 48 rushing attempts so far this season. As a team, the Jaguars rank 24th in the league in rushing, averaging 92 yards per game. Switching sides to the Colts, their rush defense is currently ranked 19th in the league, giving up 112 yards on the ground per game.
Here is what fellow Black & Teal writer Luke Sims had to say about the rushing attack.
"“I say the Jacksonville Jaguars should just give T.J. Yeldon a chance to see what he can do when he is fed over 25 carries in a game. There was an offseason commitment to the running game made by head coach Gus Bradley and offensive coordinator Greg Olson. Let’s see that commitment become a reality.”"
I agree completely, what better way to set up your young quarterback than having an effective rushing attack. If the Jaguars can get a big day out of T.J. Yeldon then it will force the Colts to respect the Jaguars rushing attack, which could open up big pass plays down the field.
