Can the Jags’ offensive line do anything in the run game? The O-Line has been much improved in pass protection, but run blocking has not been their forte this year. Jaguars’ running backs are not getting much room to work with and are being hit in the backfield far too often. The Jaguars will try to take advantage of a Texans’ defense that is giving up 114.2 yards per game on the ground. It is unclear whether or not T.J. Yeldon will play in this one, but the Jaguars will have Denard Robinson, who is more than capable of carrying the load for a game or two. The Jags’ offensive line must pave the way for the running backs in what could be a low scoring game.
The Jaguars must eliminate mistakes and be accountable. They have found many different ways to lose games this season. When they correct one mistake, another one pops up. The Individuals on this team must take personal accountability in order for the Jags to win this game, and not make mistakes that cost the game. If the Jaguars can stay away from false starts, offsides, and personal fouls, that would be a huge step in the right direction for this team that lost their only division game this season due to penalties.
The last and most important thing to watch for in this game is the steady improvement of second year quarterback, Blake Bortles. In his two starts against the Texans last year he wasn't able to do much of anything, but he has had a strong sophomore season. Last week he threw for over 300 yards and four touchdowns. If he and his receivers can stay hot, then the Jags will likely win this game.
