The Jaguars will score 2+ redzone touchdowns: FICTION

All that said about T.J Yeldon getting the ball more in the redzone, I don’t see any reason for the Jaguars to all of a sudden become proficient near the goalline.

The Jaguars got a touchdown in garbage time last week against the Chargers, but that doesn’t dismiss just how incompetent they’ve been in that part of the field. Whether it’s Toby Gerhart‘s inability to find the endzone from two yards out, Bortles’ struggling placing the ball on fade patterns, or the coaching staff inexplicably using Denard Robinson as the goalline back,there’s something wrong with everything the Jaguars try.

I need to see the Jaguars do something well consistently in the redzone before I start believing they can finish drives on a regular basis.

The Jaguars are rightfully underdogs in this game – they are on the road against a team that has lost a lot of close games and could have beaten the Jaguars two weeks ago. If the Jaguars don’t figure out what works near the goalline to start scoring touchdowns instead of settling for field goals, it’s unreasonable to expect the defense to hold the Titans to a low point total again.
