The Jaguars’ defense will have another dominating game in Week 10.

2. The front seven will once again log four sacks. 

The Jaguars’ defense has applied pressure at a high rate in 2021. However, they don’t always get a push from the interior defensive line. That changed against the Bills when defensive tackle Tavon Bryan had arguably the best game of his pro career. Expect him and the front seven to follow their Week 9 performance with another dominant one.

Edge rusher Josh Allen will once again lead the Jags’ defensive effort and will register his second multi-sack game of the year. But he won’t be the only Jaguars to finish the game with a quarterback takedown. Dawuane Smoot will once again wreak havoc at the line of scrimmage and K’Lavon Chaisson will register his second sack of the season.

3. The Jaguars’ defense will force two turnovers.

The Jaguars entered Week 9 with just two takeaways, one of the worst marks in the league. They logged three against the Bills, recovering a forced fumble and snagging two interceptions. It’s unrealistic to have that kind of performance every week. But Jacksonville’s defense is currently on a roll and will come out of Indy with two more, an interception and a forced fumble.

Cornerback Shaquill Griffin is still looking for the first interception of the season. He will get it in Week 10. Also, Josh Allen will once again generate a turnover. This time though, it will be a forced fumble.
