3. Win the turnover battle
This should go without saying, but committing silly turnovers has been a big problem for the Jaguars so far this season. Let’s go back to last week’s contest against the New York Jets – if it wasn’t for a muffed punt then the Jaguars could have very well won last week’s contest. The Jaguars come into this week’s matchup with a turnover ratio of -7 which is the 28th worst in the NFL.
However, the Jaguars should have a chance to make Baltimore force some turnovers as well as the Ravens also have a turnover ratio of -7. Joe Flacco comes into this matchup with 8 interceptions and he has thrown three in the last three games. With wideout Steve Smith out for the rest of the season, the Ravens will be without their most reliable target and they have will have to rely on young receivers, Chris Givens, Marlon Brown and Kamar Aiken.
This is a must win game for the Jacksonville Jaguars if they want to have a shot at winning the AFC South and if they attack the Ravens through the air, pressure the quarterback, and win the turnover battle then they should be able to get their third win of the year.
