Get special teams back on track
To call last Sunday’s special teams performance a disaster would be a severe understatement. The Rams scored two touchdowns on special teams-a kickoff return on the opening kick and a blocked punt return. Los Angeles’ special teams outscored their offense, and was the difference in the game.
Against the Colts, the Jaguars must put forth an abundantly better effort from the unit. With a defense like the one in Jacksonville who has done their job in shutting down opposing offenses, don’t give away points and don’t leave points on the board. Execute better on punt and kick coverage, and maybe more importantly be accurate on field goals and extra points.
One of the biggest focal points on Sunday will be on the kicker. Jason Myers was released this week and replaced by Josh Lambo, who spent his first two seasons with the Chargers. Frustration loomed large with the inconsistency of Myers, so the pressure will be on Lambo to deliver.
Playing in a game the Jaguars should win, don’t give up scores and big plays to the Colts with lapses on special teams.
