The Jags just lost another safety for the year...I don't know about running on those guys, man their D-Line is tough. At least in the interior...those guys are beasts...
Jay should find some seams open...we should win this easily...

Wow, is Elam going to win another one for us or is our main man Cutler and the offense going to finally put a team away by at least 10-14 points?
I would have to say 27-14 Denver.

Put a prediction in the other thread but i guess I should've posted here...
The Jags are an inside out football team.
On defense they pressure up the middle relentlessly and eat up both the A and B gaps with their tackles. Henderson looks like he might play this week and that will get them a lot closer to full strength in run defense.
On offense, they execute the run so well because they do it so much. They don't have tremendous athletes but they are big on the O-line, and thus, can wear us down if they keep at it. Their running backs are both good and both can make a big play in the running game
How do we match up?
The Broncos as a team have allowed 17 points per game, but as a Defense have only allowed 10 points per game. The Jags and us; therefore, are tied for second place in NFL scoring defense.
When they Pass:
Their O-line has been very poor in pass protection, and we will relentlessly blitz their mobile QB on every passing down, and they will have no answer for it, all game, this much is certain. Without good protection they will not be able to get down the field, and our Corners will come up quickly on them if they try quick hitches. With their running game, it will be safe to assume they simply will not throw much. This is going to be a 2 stop defensive match, in other words, if we stop them twice and force a third and long passing situation, it will almost be impossible to convert for them.
When they Run:
The Jaguars are physical at the LOS and their running plays are slow developing. They almost play football like they belong with those other gritty NFC teams with no flash. They lack playmakers on offense but do have two good running backs. We need DJ to play better, Ian to play like last week and Nate to keep doing what he's been doing to slow down their running game. Our D-line is improving every week against the run which has a lot to do with Jarvis and Marcus Thomas getting better and our veterans getting more comfortable with the scheme.
When we Pass:
The Jaguars are a very physical defense. Think Patriots defense with a 4-3 look; but much less aggressive. They press on the receivers, they get interior pressure regularly and their great run D allows their safeties to provide help in coverage. However, the current situation on their D-line is that they are banged up and their pass rush is hurting as a result.
Their corners are very good at what they do. But, they will not be any better than what we faced against the Raiders, and our receivers will not have any problems getting open against their secondary. The key to the passing game is getting Jay time, either with a moving pocket or play action and attacking deep the way we did against Oakland. Because of our success against Oakland, its very easy to see us doing the same vs. the Jaguars.
When we Run:
Two seasons ago, we walked into Jacksonville and put up a 150+ yards with ease on that vaunted run defense. That was our last meeting. Two meetings ago (the one where griffin fumbled the game away) they successfully shut down the run against us.
The difference between the two was that Shanahan almost completely abandoned the inside run in the second meeting. And with Graham blocking for us now, I would expect a repeat scheme and subsequent performance for us. I look for us to double down on their ends and move Graham to the second level. I look for a big running game for Henry.
I hate to say this, but i see another big yardage game with below par redzone scoring. Its easy to imagine us moving the ball vs. the Jaguars, they are hurt and our offense really is as dangerous between the 20s as the #1 league ranking suggests.
However as we near the redzone, their physical corners don't have to worry about the deep pass and their linebackers can crowd the LOS and blitz Cutler. Combine that with their always reliable interior pressure, and I can't see us getting anything but field goals for much of the game.
Both their corners are fairly large, including Brian Williams who is 5-11 and over 200 lbs which is still a mismatch vs. Marshall but he is very physical and won't give up so easy if we try a quick fade.
But playing at home, and against the first opponent who has a worse special teams unit than we have, I can see us winning this game decisively in TOP and yardage, just not on the score board.

Broncos win 28 - 10. Henry finally has big game against the Jags. The Jags can't pass against us and our "D" comes up big against the run. Jevon has two Td, one long pass from Cutler and one from inside the twenty.

<HR style="COLOR: #ff0000" SIZE=1><!-- / icon and title --><!-- message -->This will be a great physical tune up for us, but the Jags will not be gaining more than 125 rushing yards, as we are primed for 3 tds in first half. Their big OL will push us around a little in the first half, but their carries will drop as they play catch up and here is why. The Jags history on run defense against us and Henry is exactly what our offensive play calling needs. We will pass early to set up the run, keeping them off balance with screen plays to both WRs and Henry. When we do run, we will be successful. Our most potent runs this year are stretch plays off tackle/C-gap. Obviously this plays to the OL/Grahams strengths and Henrys ability to shed the first tackler (one of the best stiff arms in the game!), but it also runs away from their strength at DT.
This history should also prevent Shanahan from getting too cute in the red-zone. We will not see a whole set of downs used on running plays or those silly runs on 3rd and 7. We have weapons and a huge height advantage through the air, we just need to use it better. It starts with the play calling in the red-zone and ends with Cutler making the right reads. Cutler missed three TDs against Oakland because of experiance. He forced it early to Walker on the drag route, one more second or a wider touch pass and 84 has plenty of seperation. Missed Marshall on the jump ball by throwing behind him, but that might have been intentional, just a bad read between 15 and 6. He could of easily used this same tactic on the missed jump ball to Walker, he just missed the read. Sooner or later we start making these plays, I'm betting on sooner! The Jags short rookie FS and whoever replaces their injured SS will be exposed all game long.

Jaguars dominate unmercifully except for two Champ picks, both returned for TD's.

Screen play after screen play will have those Jagwags trying to arm tackle 'the RAKE' at RB.

Big game for sacks, forced fumbles, and general chasing of Garrard all over the place. Their O-line sux ... and on top of that, their best lineman Chris Naeole is banged up.
