2. After letting Doug Martin abuse them last week, the Jaguars are going to key in on stopping Arian Foster. How is his recovery coming along?

"He seemed to be slow in his first game back, which is to be expected. He did show up pretty big in the passing game but struggled to get going much on the ground, but I think that was due to the makeshift line the Texans are employing due to injuries. Foster looks like he is ready to go though, I expect big things from him going forward as he absolutely has to put this offense on his back."

My take:

I think Arian Foster is the x-factor in this game as the Jaguars showed they can be exploited on run defense by good running backs. Doug Martin had a career performance last week on the ground and in the air, and Foster is more than capable of putting up a similar game. The Jaguars need to keep Foster in check and hope he still isn’t 100% this week.
