The Jaguars face the Titans on Thursday night. Here are three key players to watch in this match up.
It has been a rough season for the Jacksonville Jaguars so far. Week one the key signing of the offseason, Nick Foles was injured on his first touchdown pass as a Jaguar, despite a very solid outing by rookie quarterback Gardner Minshew the Jaguars were stomped by the Chiefs. Fast-forward one week and Jacksonville comes one play away from victory against rival Houston Texans, Minshew once again performed well.
During that game coach Doug Marrone and star corner Jalen Ramsey got into a very heated dispute on the sideline. Fast-forward once more to the middle of the week and Ramsey has requested to be traded.
A win this week is without a doubt much needed. The locker room chemistry seems to be low and the team is in danger of falling into the same kind of rut that will inevitably lead towards another losing season. Due to the fact Ramsey’s future is uncertain, he will obviously not be a key player to watch, but keeping an eye on the trade rumors will without a doubt be worth watching.
With all of that being said, there are a lot of players who will be interesting to watch. There is still a good amount of hope for the Jaguars despite all that they have been through. The two teams that we lost to are very good teams. The Chiefs have the most electric offense in the NFL and they looked like it.
The Texans were a few peoples’ pick to win the Super Bowl this year and we were two-point conversion away from beating them with a sixth-round rookie quarterback making his first NFL start. Things are nowhere near as dark as they seem. With all of these intriguing bright spots across the team, these are the 3 key players to watch this Thursday night:
