Jaguars vs. Seahawks: 5 bold predictions for Week 8
4. Jaguars RB James Robinson will run for 150-plus rushing yards.
In retrospect, the Jaguars might wonder why they drafted Travis Etienne when they already had a stud in running back James Robinson. Entering Week 8, the former Redbird is among the NFL leaders in both traditional and advanced statistics.
Robinson is averaging 5.5 yards per carry and has racked up 460 yards even though he’s just toted the rock 84 times. He hasn’t had more than 18 carries in a game this season. The Jaguars will increase his workload and go over 150 rushing yards against a vulnerable Seahawks’ defense that is allowing an average of 133 per game. Also, he will find the end zone for the sixth time in 2021.
5. Jamal Agnew will score his first receiving TD with the Jaguars.
Jamal Agnew had two touchdown returns in back-to-back weeks and has shown his worth as a receiver in the last two games. Against the Dolphins, he had two passes of 20-plus yards and finished the game with five receptions for 78 yards.
With DJ Chark out for the year, Agnew will see his role on offense increase even more. Shaquill Griffin told the local media Agnew has fully made the transition to wide receiver after playing cornerback early in his NFL career.
Griffin said it’s just a matter of Agnew getting targets and he will get them against the Seahawks. He will make the most of them and score the first receiving touchdown of his career.
