Keep getting pressure on the quarterback
The Jaguars defense is quickly proving itself to be one of the best in the league, with a relentless front seven and a suffocating secondary. On Sunday, look for the unit to continue their ascension and rattle the New York offense, with the big men upfront leading the charge.
The Jets quarterback situation is less than fear-evoking , and NFL journeyman Josh McCown has been the starter since the season began. McCown played well last week against the Dolphins, but shouldn’t be labeled as a difficult task for Jacksonville’s defense. Keeping him on his toes and uncomfortable would spell a bad day for New York’s offense.
The Jets have a pedestrian offense overall, and a limited amount of explosive talent, so expect the Jaguars defensive line to pin their ears back and get after the quarterback.
Last week in London, the Jaguars got constant heat on Joe Flacco, derailing any chances for the Ravens offense to get anything going. Expect the Jaguars to have the same mentality this week in New York, and disrupt the Jets’ plans for a productive day on offense.
