Joe Flacco will throw an interception: FICTION
The Jacksonville Jaguars had an embarrassing statistic heading into last year’s contest against the Ravens – the secondary had no interceptions. Given his focus as a defensive coach, particularly in the secondary, it was somewhat surprising that the Jaguars made it all the way to week 10 without a pick.
That changed against Baltimore as Joe Flacco threw two interceptions to Davon House as the Jaguars crawled to a somewhat undeserved victory. Some hoped it would open the flood gates in terms of the Jaguars defense producing turnovers, but it didn’t. The Jaguars ended the season with a scant 9 interceptions.
Will there be a similar awakening this year against Flacco? I don’t think so.
Flacco has significantly more weapons at his disposal compared to last year and the Jaguars haven’t really shown they have an improved pass rush so far. If Flacco isn’t going to be bothered and can sit around in the pocket, I don’t see how he makes a mistake against what will probably be an undermanned defense (Prince Amukamara and Davon House are both likely out of the lineup on Sunday). Flacco should have a pretty good game and he’ll keep a clean slate against the Jaguars.
