Blake Bortles will throw an interception: FACT
Blake Bortles came into the season as the undisputed franchise quarterback for the most part, but his issues over the first two weeks have given some people pause. He certainly had areas to improve in after last year’s terrific sophomore campaign, but he’s regressed in a statistical sense and the team around him isn’t helping much.
Bortles has struggled this year with stretching the field, an aspect that was the focus of his resurgence last year. Whether it’s the playcalling or his own personal conservatism, Blake just isn’t going deep as much.
"The Jaguars struggled to get anything going on offense until it was very late in the game. Bortles was asked to drop back on 55 snaps to nine run attempts. Most of Bortles’ 333 passing yards came after the catch, as the QB struggled on throws over 10 yards. With the Jaguars down early, they needed their passing attack to get big yardage, but Bortles and the Jacksonville receiving corps simply could not deliver."
The Jaguars are probably going to try to force some deep shots in this contest, and I don’t know if Blake is going to successful. Odds are the Jaguars will be down early, so I expect a couple of YOLO balls from the young QB that won’t be the best decisions.
