The Jacksonville Jaguars secondary vs the Broncos wide receivers.
The Jaguars allowed four touchdowns in Week 1. They can’t afford to give that many and expect to win many games. Their secondary needs to play better against the Broncos. They missed tackles and allowed big plays. Simply, the Texans’ passing game proved to be too much for them.
Rookie Tyson Campbell surrendered five completions and a touchdown on five targets. Shaquill Griffin also dropped a sure interception in the second play of the game. Tre Herndon will once again be out in Week 2, so Campbell will once again see the field. Also, it will be interesting to see how much time Andrew Wingard gets after struggling against the Texans. He missed a tackle and gave up a 29-yard reception. Moving forward, Andre Cisco should get more snaps and the starting nod against the Broncos.
Wide receiver Jerry Jeudy is out but the Jaguars can’t take Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick, and tight end Noah Fant lightly. In Week 1, they combined for 156 receiving yards. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater doesn’t tend to force passes and doesn’t take many risks but generally makes good decisions. If the Jaguars’ pass rush can pressure him, they will make their secondary’s job easier. Also, making a few sacks and forcing a couple of turnovers could also help.
