Yannick Ngakoue will have a sack: FACT
It’s a shining light in a dark tunnel for us Jaguars fans to see the third overall pick becoming a dominant pass rusher before our very eyes!
Oh wait, Yannick Ngakoue was a 3rd round pick? And Dante Fowler was the one who was picked third overall?
Let’s just keep thinking the opposite is true because that’s exactly how these two young defenders are playing. Fowler has been good against the run but his ability to rush the passer is at around a second grade level and he’s playing alongside guys with Masters degrees. Fowler (or Fouler if you prefer) still hasn’t quite figured out the spin move, unless his objective actually is to spin right into the offensive tackles chest for a solid bear hug.
Ngakoue on the other hand looks exceedingly quick, has terrific bend, and his technique is already refined. He should nab another sack this week against a bad Denver offensive line.
I’m not going to pick the Jaguars to win, just in case you were waiting with bated breath. I’m not going to pick them to win the rest of the year, even if they win the next 4 games. I don’t see how you can justify it, even with Siemian out. The Jaguars just won’t be able to score that many points.
I don’t think the Broncos explode offensively, but they’ll do enough and get some help in the form of a defensive touchdown.
PREDICTION: Jaguars 6 – Broncos 20
