Packers-Jaguars: Three keys

  • Print

Up Front The injury issues at wide receiver may not even matter today if Jacksonville can't generate any pass rush.  So far this year the Jaguars have registered only five sacks.  This is good news for Aaron Rodgers.  Assuming he has time it won't matter who is on the field, he should have his way with the Jacksonville secondary.

Giveaways The surest way to keep Jacksonville in this game is by turning the ball over.  Along with the recent Packers surge comes a drop in turnovers.  The Jaguars simply don't have the weaponry to keep up with the Packers but they can stay in the game with a well-timed takeaway.  If the Packers protect the ball as they have the last two weeks they will win.

Shorts Goes Long The one guy to focus on in the Jacksonville passing attack is Cecil Shorts.  Similar to the Rams Chris Gives, Shorts is a deep threat, though he doesn't quite have the same breakaway speed.  Shorts is second in the NFL in yards per catch and without Maurice Jones-Drew the second year wide receiver becomes the only offensive threat the Jags have.

Prediction Packers 27, Jaguars 13
