2. The Jaguars O-Line won't give up a sack to either Chase Young or Nick Bosa
The San Francisco defensive front is stacked with talent. Besides the recently acquired Chase Young and Nick Bosa, the unit boasts the presence of Arik Armstead and Javon Hargrave. Yet, the 49ers have only logged 16 sacks as a team this season, good for 18th in the league. Then again, they've done a good of bringing the heat, posting a 25 percent pressure rate, which ranks ninth.
Working in the Jags' favor is that they'll most likely get Walker Little back in the mix for Week 10. Little did an admirable job filling in for Cam Robinson at left tackle to start the season. However, he moved to left guard once Robinson returned to the lineup in Week 5.
A knee injury forced Little to miss the last three games but his trending toward playing against the Week 10. Having him back will help the Jags keep Young and Bosa from getting to Lawrence.
1. The Jaguars defense will get 2 INT off Brock Purdy
Brock Purdy got the spotlight as a rookie and rightfully so. Not only was he a seventh-round selection but he was literally the very last pick in the NFL Draft, the proverbial Mr. Irrelevant. With Trey Lance and Jimmy Garoppolo unable to go, he became the 49ers starting quarterback and never looked back.
Purdy was the Week 1 starter in 2023 and put solid numbers early in the season. However, he's been in a funk the last three games, throwing five interceptions and just three touchdowns. Maybe he's hit a wall. Perhaps opposing teams have figured him out but regardless of the reason, the Jags defense will look for ways to confuse him and pick him off a couple times.
The Jaguars have generated turnovers at a high rate in 2023. The trend won't end in Week 10.
