They alongside Jeff eagles had Paul the lights outside MetLife stadium. Getting yourself for the giants the Jaguars week one of the two thousand eighteen regular season. So let's take a closer look at the Jacksonville Jaguars who attended six one the AFC south title for the first time since one thousand nine hundred ninety nine last season led the patriots by ten in the fourth quarter of that AFC championship game. While the Luke twenty four to twenty offense is led by fifth year quarterback. Blake Bortles last sees it set a career high completion percentage he threw for twenty one touchdowns thirteen receptions, and the former first round pick was asked where he's game has most improved this off season getting us in the right Ron's and then protections on third down. You know? I think I've grown a lot part of that is the reps and going through all share with, you know, Nate system and seen as many looks as we didn't as many different things. So I think, you know, kinda just just honing in on our protection rules continuing to get better and picking up pressures at portal's is also a mobile quarterback. He has run for at least three hundred yards in each of his. I four seasons in the league containment is going to be important for the giants defense. But Jeff, it's not just Bortles. It's Leonard fournette that does the real heavy lifting on the ground. Yeah. When you look at the size of this guy. You think Brandon Jacobs? Okay. When he is big, but he is fast either wrecking ball, very violent runner off. And one thing about when you have a big back. You gotta be able to tackle and wrap up because he will get he'll get those yards after contact. He averages twenty yard twenty carries a game. I think you'll see that twenty plus Kerry today easily. That's thirteen the NFL, by the way. And he averages one hundred six yards a game rushing which would six in the NFL last year. Nine touchdown. Now this offense for the Jacksonville Jaguars number one in the NFL and red zone officiency. So they're going to give the ball the heavy scored nine touchdowns, and that's with missing three games last year. So really you got to wrap up this guy. He's fast, and John said it in our over and under section that he has the ability not only to tip it between the tackles runner. But he's quick he might bust a quick one on you to if you're not if you're not careful and big reason why he's been successful is because of the offensive line, Paul. We talked about the challenge that the giants offensive line is going to have with the Jaguars defensive line. The giants defensive line going up against a polish group of offensive linemen that actually upgraded with the addition of Andrew norwell, it's not just that the offensive line is really good to begin with. But then when they get a Bortles rolling out on boots and Wagle's, and then they start to extend the pocket horizontally that allows him to buy a lot of time allows us receivers to buy time. So that they can do Samaj against people in the secondary. And all of a sudden. Before you know, it you think you got him. But because he breaks contain and remember Bortles is not running to run. He's actually running simply to buy time. And then make a play. That's what the giants on the outside must maintain contain the tall. Guys. We mentioned whether it's Martin according get those hands up maintain contain maintain contain. That's pretty tough to say. Just said it and get the hands up. So that if he does unleash the ball while he's trying to allow you can knock it down. While the Jaguars defense has no problem. Putting their hands up keeping to pick reason why this was such an opportunistic group last season. It's really the who's who of pro bowlers of last year defensive end collapsed. Campbell set a franchise record right now. Twelve sacks. Those two were the best pass rushing duo in the NFL last season. But also, you can't overlook the secondary led by of course. Jalen Ramsey and AJ, boy, these guys are if you talk about really AJ Bui doesn't get a lot of credit because it Jalen Ramsey. But these guys are what you would call shutdown corners. Both are elite Ramsey is. You know, he's got to be careful with him. I mean, he's kinda guy. He'll he'll he'll he'll it'll be very interesting match up with Odell Beckham. And and really the giants trying to mismatch Paul mentioned earlier about maybe seeing OB J thought rather than outside it opposite shepherd going outside. Because really the National Football League is all about match up to elite corners like these two guys. You got to do everything to game plan around these guys for mismatches don't sleep on AJ buoy. I'll tell you what. These guys are was the lowest passer rating last year in the NFL twenty seven point one percent passer rating. Drawn to him last year to the quarterback. Oh. It's tough. When you've got both of these guys, of course, one thing about their defense, though, fellas that pass rush has lost a little teeth because they're going to be without Fowler. The at eight sacks last year. He was the third leading sacker. He is suspended for week one of the regular season. Trust me when I talked to Nate solar about it. He said, it's a good thing. He's not going to be here. They had four guys with at least eight sacks last season. Paul said, they had lots of Jews believe Jackson the other who was signed from the Denver Broncos.
