The Jacksonville Jaguars tumbled back to earth after playing a very good 6 quarters to start the season. They fell apart in the second half last week en route to a 37-16 home loss to the Tennessee Titans after upsetting the Houston Texans 29-7 in Week 1. Blake Bortles was his usual average self going 20-34 with one touchdown and two picks, while their defense also came back down to earth as well. The most important thing for the Jaguars to focus will be avoiding turnovers. They turned the ball over three times in Week 2 to a Titans defense that is nowhere near as good as Baltimore’s.
Jaguars starting quarterback Blake Bortles practiced in full today, he is dealing with a right wrist injury. They are dealing with the absence of No. 1 wide receiver Allen Robinson (ACL). That probably means a heavy dose of Leonard Fournette. Chris Ivory will be Fournette’s primary backup.
The Baltimore Ravens have managed to start the season as planned having won their first two matches. They destroyed the Bengals 20-0 in Week 1 and dropped Cleveland 24-10 last week. They are one of the best defensive teams with 8 interceptions so far and just 10 points allowed in two games. The Ravens have won nine of the past 12 meetings with the Jaguars. Anyway, through the first two games of the season, quarterback Joe Flacco is only 34-of-51 for 338 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions.
The biggest name on the injury report for the Ravens is defensive tackle Brandon Williams. Baltimore have also lost Danny Woodhead for at least a month due to an injury. Tony Bergstrom will attempt to fill the void left by Marshal Yanda, who suffered a season-ending ankle injury. By the way, the Ravens believe they have three diverse backs in Terrance West, Buck Allen and Alex Collins.
