Cincinnati Bengals vs Jacksonville Jaguars

Welcome again to NFL Sundays. The Jacksonville Jaguars are Four-Three and tied for first place within the AFC South with the Tennessee Titans. If the playoffs began right this moment, there could be postseason soccer in North Florida.
Subsequent up is the Cincinnati Bengals, a crew the Jaguars haven’t had a lot success of late. Jacksonville leads the sequence 11-9, nonetheless the Bengals have received the final 4 conferences. The final time these groups met was in 2014, a 33-23 loss by the Jaguars at Paul Brown Stadium.
The final time the Jaguars received was in 2005, scoring a 23-20 win at dwelling.
The Bengals and Jaguars had been rivals within the outdated AFC Central from 1995-2001.
Listed below are 4 keys to a Jaguars victory at EverBank Area.
Get to the Quarterback – This goes with out saying. I wrote about this earlier than, however it speaks volumes the place the Jaguars draw their energy. The Jaguars, with 33 sacks by means of seven video games, have the potential to interrupt the single-season document for 72 sacks, set by the Bears in 1984. Dalton, who has been sacked 22 instances in seven video games this season, is on tempo for 50, which might high his private excessive of 46 in 2012.
In the event that they drop Andy Dalton a number of instances, the probabilities of a win are that a lot better. The Bengals’ quarterback has been sacked 22 instances already this 12 months. Cincinnati is nicely conscious of Jacksonville’s entrance seven and what it has completed thus far this season.
Bengals coach Marvin Lewis stated the entrance seven reminds him of the 2007 New York Giants, who received the Tremendous Bowl that 12 months with Michael Strahan, Justin Tuck and Osi Umenyiora. The three defensive linemen mixed for 32 sacks.
Calais Campbell has 10 sacks, Yannick Ngakoue has 6.5 and Dante Fowler has 5.5. The final time Jacksonville had three gamers with double-digit sacks was 1999 (Tony Bracken, Kevin HardyGary Walker).
Run the Soccer The Jaguars noticed what TJ Yeldon can do if given a chance. After being inactive for the primary six weeks of the season, the third-year again broke off a 58-yard landing run and had 122 yards on the day within the 27-Zero win over Indianapolis.
Yeldon could not get that form of manufacturing if Leonard Fournette is on the sphere. With the rookie nonetheless coping with an ankle damage in Week 7, Yeldon proved he may burn a crew together with his pace.
I assumed he performed very well and that's what we search for. Gamers that may play nicely. In the event that they present us good issues then clearly we have now to place it on ourselves to ensure that they get these alternatives once more to maintain it going,” Jaguars’ head coach Doug Marrone stated on Wednesday.
Yeldon figures to get some carries this week and will assist a balanced operating sport. Nonetheless, the offense ought to filter by means of Fournette, who's ranked sixth within the NFL with 596 yards.
Just like the Bengals, the Jaguars may use a number of backs this week, with Corey Grant and Chris Ivory additionally seeing time on the sphere.
Cease AJ Inexperienced It’s simpler to write down about it than really doing it.
Having AJ Bouye and Jalen Ramsey on the skin to cowl the All-Professional large receiver is a bit comforting, however like Allen Robinson, his potential to leap and make performs over defenders may make for an extended day.
It's a problem. These guys, although you discuss Jalen and A.J., they put a variety of work into to get themselves prepared. You recognize you're going to be challenged,” Marrone stated. “You recognize these varieties of gamers are going to make performs and get alternatives, however it's only a matter of being conscious and maintaining that focus for the entire sport. In the event that they do make a catch, simply be sure to get them down, so that you don’t allow them to make the explosive catch, which is everyone seems to be making an attempt to do.”
If the secondary is ready to preserve Inexperienced’s catches to a minimal and might shut off the deep routes, Dalton must have a look at extra passes beneath and make the most of the tight ends extra. Additionally, the Bengals are strong at utilizing the swing move with its operating backs out of the backfield.
Rinse and Repeat for Blake Bortles – Bortles regarded good within the shutout win at Indianapolis. Just like the crew needing to place collectively again to again wins, can the quarterback put collectively again to again strong performances? The Bengals have one of the best pink zone protection within the NFL.
Jacksonville will likely be aware of Geno Atkins within the center and Vontaze Burfict at linebacker. Atkins is without doubt one of the greatest defensive tackles within the sport. Burfict is without doubt one of the most risky gamers on the sphere.
I believe that once you’re speaking about Aaron Donald, Casey, McCoy, Atkins is true in there in that dialog. He’s simply pretty much as good,” Marrone stated. “Like I at all times stated, look, he’s the most effective gamers, if not one of the best participant, at his place. I believe he has nice mixtures identical to a variety of these gamers. Energy, dimension, pace, move rush, defend the run. When you do all these issues then I simply throw you in that class of different nice gamers at that place. He’s one among them. He’s earned it. He works his butt off.”
If Bortles places his crew in place to make quick yardage performs on third down and doesn't throw interceptions or has a expensive turnover, this might be a repeat efficiency of two weeks in the past.
Having Fournette, middle Brandon Linder and presumably sort out Cam Robinson again is big for this crew.
