3. What’s the weakest spot on the Titans’ roster and do you think the Jaguars can exploit it?
"I think it is pretty clearly cornerback and the linebackers in coverage. If I were the Jaguars I would have extra protection on the line to keep Blake Bortles off the ground and then try to find Antwon Blake or Brice McCain in coverage down the field before they get to their safety help. If that doesn’t work, a touch pass to a tight end who is being covered by Avery Williamson is probably a good option."
That’s a convenient weakness since the Jacksonville passing attack is comprehensively broken at the moment. Blake Bortles isn’t completing routine passes to open wide receivers, and his typically reliable targets (mainly Allen Robinson) are letting him down with backbreaking drops. Blake and McCain will probably get beat plenty by the Jacksonville receivers, but it won’t matter if Bortles can’t get them the ball.
There’s a chance – a very slight and almost negligible chance – that this matchup helps Bortles and his receivers get right. Bortles did have 5 touchdowns in his last game against Tennessee, 3 of which went in the direction of ARob. This is a different team with a different demeanor however, so I’d be shocked if that kind of production happens again. It will resemble last year’s Thursday night matchup more than the shootout in the second game from 2015.
