Irony is part of the NFL. The Jaguars struggled through much of the Jack Del Rio era chasing the Colts. Now that Peyton Manning is gone, the Jaguars have yet to lose to the Colts under Blaine Gabbert. Oh the irony. Here’s 5 quick things that the Jaguars can do to keep the streak going.
1) Defense (again)
Once again, it’s all about the defense. Hopefully they decide to show up today. Hopefully.
I’m turning BG11 into a thing, and make no mistake about it, this is a game he can shine in. The Colts have a very poor defense that should hemorrhage yards on the ground and through the air. I’m thinking 30 points for the Jaguars’ offense would be a nice way to get the season moving in the right direction.
3) Maurice Jones-Drew
Jones-Drew has historically been very good against the Colts. He should be able to keep that going today.
4) Special Teams
The Jaguars should be able to flip field position and nail long field goals in Indianapolis. The Jaguars need to capitalize on any special teams break to win this game.
5)Keep Your Heads
The Jaguars are staring 0-3 straight in the face. It’s almost impossible to turn your season around after dropping your first three. Stay cool, and get it done.
