2. The Bucs have a few stars on defense in Gerald McCoy and Lavonte David, but is there anyone else on that side of the ball the Jaguars should account for?

"DE Jacquies Smith had sacked Drew Brees three times a few weeks ago and has provided a solid pass rush since. Safety Chris Conte has also been a playmaker, forcing two fumbles and picking off one pass in these first four games."

My take:

Smith is one of the guys who I’m going to keep an eye on in this matchup. He was quietly very good last year and has picked up sacks in bunches so far this year. If he lines up against Luke Joeckel, he should give him fits and make Bortles have to move around a bit.
