4. The Jaguars will limit Bijan Robinson, Falcons running game to less than 100 yards

The Jags did an adequate job of stymying the run the past three games. They haven't been able to stop opposing teams from moving the ball through the air but that's a whole different story. Currently, running back Bijan Robinson is an early candidate to win Offensive Rookie of the Year Honors, racking up 39 carries for 219. Tyler Allgeier has also taken advantage of the chances he's been given, collecting 125 yards on 38 rushes.

There should be heavy doses of Robinson and Allgeier Sunday but expect the Jags to be prepared and ready to contain the Falcons running game to fewer than 100 yards. Once Atlanta realizes that moving the ball on the ground won't work, they'll have to resort to the passing game.

3. The Jaguars will hold Falcons QB Desmond Ridder scoreless in Week 4

The Falcons have won two games this season and there are many reasons for that. Sophomore quarterback Desmond Ridder isn't one of them though. So far, he's completed 62.5 percent of his passes 553 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. While those are solid numbers, they aren't the ones you come to expect from a franchise quarterback.

At this point of his career, Ridder is more of a game manager. Although there's nothing inherently wrong with the label, he hasn't shown he's capable of elevating those around him, which can spell trouble if the J-Villans show at full strength Sunday.

The Jaguars defense has shown a knack for creating turnovers. In Week 4, not only will they have three takeaways but they'll also prevent Ridder from reaching the end zone.
