JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A closer look at the match played on Sunday’s Texans-Jaguars game at TIAA Bank Field.
When the Jaguars Run
With Leonard Fournette missing so much time due to severe hamstring injuries, Jaguars have not received production and consistency from the running game that they expected. Lose left tack Cam Robinson injured too. Jaguars are 18th in rush (103.3 meters), including 11th (4.43) on average per berry. Backup T.J. Yeldon, their leading rusher with 299 meters, is also injured. Quarterback Blake Bortles is a good runner who will need to reinforce the field play. He is the leading rider with 188 meters on 26 berries. The Texans have stuck to give amazing defense. They are 1
0th against the run (95.8), including third on average per berry (3.84). The front seven have played strong but disciplined on falls, usually holding their backs between tackles for line-backers Benardrick McKinney and Zach Cunningham. Safeties Kareem Jackson and Tyrann Mathieu have been amazing when they read the run and stopped it. EDGE: Texans
When Jaguar Passes
After losing the first six games that he played against the Texans, Blake Bortles Jaguar helped win twice last season. He was exceptional in the 45-7 route in Jacksonville, where he threw for 329 yards and three touchdowns without intercepting. After that game, Jadeveon Clowney, outside the line-backer, called Bortle’s “trash” when the quarterback had disappeared from Texan’s defense. The Texans must be smart and disciplined at the passport and beware that Bortles is driving and driving. At 6-5, 236 he is big as a narrow end and goes as one. Bortles had far too much time to throw in December debacle, and he picked the secondary from each other. Clowney, J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus – who have not yet recorded a bag – must put pressure on Bortles and force him to make bad decisions with the ball. He comes from back-to-back subpar performances and hopes to redeem his reputation before home fans. The Texans are 14th against the pass (245.8 meters). Jaguar is 15th pass (267.7). Bortle’s favorite goals are Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole, both of which have outstanding speed.
When Texans Run
The crime did not return D & # 39; Onta Foreman, so Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue had to share the load again. Both have had a hard time finding a running room in a consistent way. Linemen and tight ends need to be improved as a blower. The Texans are 15 in rush (109.2 meters), including 26 on average per berry (3.88). Jacksonville defense, second overall (306.5), is 22nd against the run (118.7), including 16 on average per berry (4.28). The Jaguars are built to come after the quarterback with linebackers that are easier, faster and faster against the ball, but they can be overcome. The Texans may benefit from the high speed by running some moves to keep them in balance. What the texas need to do is drive less on the first level and use short passports as driving. Defense expects them to run first because they know that’s what Bill O & Brien likes to do. EDGE: Jaguars
When Texans Pass
This can get ugly. Deshaun Watson fought seven times and hit another 12 times in the last win over Buffalo. It was this year’s worst offensive performance. Watson played badly and absorbed a lot of punishment. Bill O & Brien said they would work to get rid of the ball faster to prevent him from meeting. Expect more three-piece drops and excerpts to stay away from the Jacksonville Passage Tracks. In their sweep of the Texans last season, the Jaguars recorded 14 sacks, including six at the end of Calais Campbell. They get huge pressure from Campbell, Yannick Ngakoue and Dante Fowler. Linebackers Myles Jackson and Telvin Smith have outstanding speed and can also hit the passer. The Texans can miss injured justice Zach Fulton. If he can not play, Greg Mancz will replace him.
