The Jaguars easily have a more talented roster than the Jets. I do think the Jets will be able to keep this one close. However, rookie QB Sam Darnold going up against the Jaguars defense could be disastrous. The Jaguars defense will take advantage of his lack of experience.

The Jaguars will have a bounce back in this one. I expect them to dominate time of possession on offense and pressure rookie Sam Darnold on defense. Six sacks and two turnovers for the defense getting back to their playmaking ways of last year. Personally I want to watch ASJ against his old team.

After last week the Jaguars just need to show the ability to get off the field quickly on defense. The offense has to show SOME consistency. The Jaguars don't have to anything flashy. They can just win the game by being efficient with everything they do.

The Jaguars, on paper should win this one with ease. But the Jaguars offense is coming off of one of the worst performances in franchise history. The Jaguars defense, while suffocating, hasn't been the same playmaking unit we saw in 2017. But if history tells us anything it's that the Doug Marrone coached Jaguars won't come out and play a stinker for the second straight week. Since Doug Marrone took over as the head coach in Jacksonville the Jaguars are 5-1 in the regular season following a loss and have won by an average of over 20 points per game. I believe Leonard Fournette will return for this one and the Jaguars offense will show signs of life again, but the Jets have playmakers of their own on the defensive side of the ball and won't allow the Jaguars to run up the score. Darnold will make some nice plays, but will struggle with consistency against the Jaguars defense and will have a couple of turnovers in this one.
