Jaguars versus Bills: Five bold predictions for Week 9
2. Jaguars CB Tyson Campbell will snag an interception and a PBU.
Rookie cornerback Tyson Campbell started the season in the slot and moved outside after the Jaguars traded C.J. Henderson to the Carolina Panthers. While he has struggled at times, he’s also shown potential at times.
Defensive coordinator Joe Cullen is particularly pleased with Tyson’s performance this season and believes he’s only going to get better. While the Georgia Bulldog has allowed 67.9 percent of the passes thrown his way, he’s also registered three passes defensed, one against the Seahawks, and hasn’t allowed a touchdown pass, per Pro Football Reference. Expect him to hold his ground against the Buffalo Bills’ wide receivers, log his fourth pass deflections of the season, and the first interception of his NFL career.
3. The Jaguars’ front seven will register a combined four sacks.
Joe Cullen knows it’s tough to bring down someone of the stature of Bills quarterback Josh Allen. But the Jaguars’ defensive front is up for the challenge. Outside linebacker Josh Allen had a multi-sack game against the Seahawks and Dawuane Smoot has been one of the team’s most consistent pass rushers in 2021.
K’Lavon Chaisson has been inconsistent this season but he’s also had his moments. The trio will dominate the line of scrimmage and register a combined four sacks. As Cullen recently said, Allen may not always get the sack but he’s playing hard while Smoot is having arguably his best season as a pro.
