2. Let Bortles air it out
Blake Bortles is presented with a very favorable matchup this week, the Colts pass defense currently ranks 30th in the NFL, they give up an ultra high 280.4 passing yards per game. Bortles absolutely shredded the Titans for 322 passing yards and a career high five touchdowns and the Tennessee pass defense is currently ranked ninth in the NFL. If Blake Bortles was able to torch a top ten pass defense last week then I see no reason why he shouldn’t be able to have a big game through the air against Indianapolis.
The Jaguars received some good news this week as well, the second member of the A-Team, Allen Hurns, was recently cleared to play this week against the Colts. This will be a huge addition for the Jaguars, especially considering the fact that Hurns lit up the Colts for 11 receptions, 116 yards and one touchdown in the last matchup. Allen Robinson has emerged as an elite wideout as well (obviously), his 11 touchdown receptions are the second highest in the NFL and he ranks fifth in the league in receiving yards. The Jaguars offense is clearly evolving into a very talented group and if the Blake Bortles is able to repeat his performance from last week, then the Jaguars will have a great chance to win.
