Marlon Mack will have a touchdown: FACT
It’s no secret that the Jaguars have a poor rush defense. I personally thought this was an area that would get shored up as the season went along, but the inability to stop Todd Gurley in the 4th quarter last week made it impossible for the offense to put up a final drive to tie the game late.
That being said, I do still expect the Jaguars to clean it up in the run game at some point. They seemingly have the talent, but it might be too much to expect Myles Jack in his first season as a starter to make all the right calls and always hit the right gaps, or for Abry Jones to get used to his elevated work load this easily.
This week probably won’t be too different though. I expect the Colts to pound the rock and try to establish the run game, especially in the red zone. Mack will get a touchdown as he’s the type of back that tends to give the Jaguars fits.
The Jaguars have done the opposite of what I’ve expected them to do every week… so I should pick them to lose this week right?
Nah, I’m going to stick to my guns here. The Colts are a bad team that the Jaguars should beat, even with Blake Bortles fading away into the ether as a viable starting NFL quarterback.
The Jacksonville defense is just too good and there’s no way the special teams can be as bad as it was last week.
Jaguars take care of business here.
PREDICTION: Jaguars 20 – Colts 10
