The Jacksonville Jaguars play for pride against Indianapolis in Week 17. Injuries are a concern as Jacksonville limps into the season finale.
On Sunday, the Jacksonville Jaguars will play Indianapolis without some key players that they had in week four. The Jaguars won the game in London 30-27. The offense limps into Indianapolis looking to end the horrific season.
Blake Bortles was 19/33 for 207 yards and two touchdowns. Allen Robinson caught five passes for 55 yards and one touchdown. Marqise Lee caught four passes for 28 yards. T.J. Yeldon rushed 14 times for 71 yards. He caught four passes for 46 yards. Yeldon is now on the injured-reserve list.
The Jaguars offense came alive against the Tennessee Titans on Christmas Eve. One wonders how Jacksonville will perform against Indianapolis without T.J. Yeldon. Most of all, who will be the running back if Chris Ivory is unable to play?
Bortles will have to play as well as he did on Saturday. He must be decisive and accurate from the pocket. Jacksonville cannot afford to turn over the ball. Bortles thrives in an up-tempo offensive scheme.
Jaguars Offense Limps Into Indianapolis With A Good Chance To Win The Game
Next, Bryan Walters is playing very well. Walters is not Allen Hurns but is becoming a clutch receiver. Walters caught five passes last week in crucial situations. He is getting open and creating space which helps Bortles.
Third, Marqise Lee is becoming a force that opposing defenses cannot ignore. Lee is having his breakout season. Currently, he has caught 57 passes for 765 yards with three touchdowns. He will have a great game against the 24th rank pass defense.
Even though the Jacksonville offense limps into Sunday’s game, the Jaguar defense will have to play well. There is no doubt that Jalen Ramsey will shut down T.Y. Hilton. Expect to see Jacksonville to win the game and put this nightmare season to bed.
