No. 4 Jaguars player who must shine vs. the Broncos: Andre Cisco, S
Safety Andre Cisco registered the last takeaway the Jaguars had this season, an interception returned for a touchdown against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 4. Since then, the defense hasn’t had a turnover and the former Syracuse Orangeman has cooled down considerably.
Cisco hasn’t been bad but he hasn’t been great either. Against the Giants in Week 7, he missed two tackles on a day in which the defense missed 12. The Jaguars’ defense can’t afford to let Rusell Wilson cook Sunday and for that to happen, the sophomore safety must make all his tackles and come up with a couple of big plays.
No. 3 Jaguars player who must shine vs. the Broncos: Josh Allen, OLB
Reportedly, Jaguars outside linebacker Josh Allen is garnering trade interest from a handful of clubs before the Nov. 1 deadline and it’s easy to see why. Although the former Kentucky Wildcat has just three sacks this season, he leads Jacksonville with three quarterback takedowns and is arguably their best defensive player.
Sure, there are only a few players that are ‘untradable’ in the NFL and Allen isn’t one of them. However, it’s highly unlikely that the Jags will move on from him. Instead, he will show in London why he’s so valuable in Jacksonville. Expect Allen to dominate the line of scrimmage and have a big game against the Broncos.
