POST WEEK 1 STATE OF THE JAGUARS
The Jags are 1-0 for the first time since 2011 after their week one road victory over division rival the Houston Texans. The Jags looked like a totally different team in the 29-7 victory than we have seen in recent memory. We saw a different Blake Bortles as he went 11 for 21 (including several drops from receivers) for 125 yards, 1 touchdown and 0 interceptions. The only negative coming out of the victory on Sunday is that leading receiver Allen Robinson went down with a knee injury and it's now certain that he is out for the season.
Leonard Fournette was the difference maker, to be sure, for the Jags offense as he carries the ball 26 times for 100 yards. The Jags defense, however, hit the Texans in the mouth early and the defense also scored, when second year defensive end Yannick Ngakoue forced a fumble that was recovered by second year defensive end Dante Fowler to give the Jags a 19-0 lead at halftime.
The Jaguars will take on the Tennessee Titans in Jacksonville at Everbank Field, assuming there are no complications from Hurricane Irma, which caused one NFL game to be postponed last week and already had effects on many college football games this weekend. The Titans come into the game 0-1 after losing a heartbreaker at home last week to the Raiders.
The Jags have a chance to take an early and commanding lead in the AFC South if they beat their bitter rival the Tennessee Titans. Last weeks division road win was a real confidence boost, and a home win over the Titans could also mean early playoff talk in Jacksonville. NFL Network analyst and NFL great, Deion Sanders, predicted the Jags would win the AFC South. We sure hope he is right.
