The Jacksonville Jaguars are headed to London. They are going to take on the Atlanta Falcons there in Week 4 action. After starting the season 1-2, the Jaguars have failed to meet expectations through three weeks of the season. They need to get back on track now.
The Jaguars are known for being one of the worst teams in the league on a constant basis. However, they are now trying to turn that reputation around after an AFC South championship last season. They also won a playoff game so expectations are different.
There are a lot of players on this team that can help them turn things around. Trevor Lawrence is one of them as he is expected to be the savior of the franchise. That is a lot to put on him but he has known that he'd be that type of player in the NFL since high school.
It would be nice to see a few of his weapons step up and help him. Right now, it is fair to expect more from Calvin Ridley. He is expected to be the team's number-one receiver this season after coming over in a trade with the Atlanta Falcons.
The Jacksonville Jaguars need more from Calvin Ridley going forward.
In Week 4, the Jaguars need Ridley to dominate his old team. He has the talent to dominate a football game which is what the team expects from him. With Lawrence throwing him the ball, it should be a bit easier than any other year of his career.
The Falcons are a very good team. They can play defense and run the ball which is something that the Jaguars need to be ready for. If they are going to score enough points against them, Ridley needs to step up.
While he was a member of the Falcons, he was suspended for violating the league's gambling rules. During his suspension, Atlanta traded him to Jacksonville. Now is his chance to get revenge against his old team as they take each other on across the pond.
A national stage like this is the perfect way for Ridley to show that he is all the way back. It should be a very fun game to watch, especially if Lawrence is able to find Ridley for a score or two.
