2. Jaguars WR Christian Kirk will log his second 100-yard game of the year

Christian Kirk was one of the most productive wide receivers in the league in the first three games of the season, hauling in 18 receptions for 267 yards with three touchdowns. However, he had somewhat of a down game against Philly, catching a measly two passes on nine targets for 60 years.

The Texans’ secondary is ninth against the pass but offensive coordinator Press Taylor will look for potential mismatches to exploit. This will help Kirk register his second 100-yard game of the season even if Zay Jones is unavailable for the second straight week.

1. Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence will rebound and have 3 TDs in Week 5

Trevor Lawrence rightfully earned plenty of scrutiny after turning the ball over five times in Week 4. However, it’s highly unlikely that he will have a game like that ever again. Simply, he had shown enough growth early in the regular season to make you think that his outing against the Eagles was an outlier and not a sign of things to come.

Prior to last week’s game, Lawrence had thrown six touchdowns and just one interception. Moreover, he was ranked in the top half of most quarterback power rankings, so it’s clear talking heads legitimately believe he’s improved this season.

Lawrence has the mindset to make the most of his mistakes and he will bounce back nicely against the Texans. He will be nearly flawless and will throw for three touchdowns and no interceptions, the second time in three weeks that he’ll achieve the feat.
