The Jacksonville Jaguars have an 0-5 record so far this season, for last place in the AFC South. The Titans are not much better than the Jaguars. The Jaguars finally have a chance to  win a game. With Blake Bortles starting for the Jaguars, Ace Sanders back, and Toby Gerhart out, the Jags can win. Who will earn the victory this time?

Our Prediction: Titans 18, Jaguars 21

Blake Bortles. Storm Johnson. Denard Robinson. Allen Hurns. These players on offense can win the Jags a few games. Meanwhile, on defense, they had a much better game vs the Steelers, only allowing 10 points. The Jaguars will not have Toby Gerhart play against the Titans, but we feel the Jags can win this game with Bortles at the helm.

Key Jaguars Position: Runningbacks

Storm Johnson will get more carries, because last Sunday he had a 20 yard run. I feel that Todman, Johnson, and Robinson will do a nice job. I also feel that they are the key to winning this game.

Key Jaguars Player(s): Storm Johnson & Blake Bortles

Blake Bortles struggled last Sunday, throwing two picks and less than 200 yards. He will need to perform at a higher level now, along with Storm Johnson (his buddy from UCF).

Player/coach with the most to lose on Sunday: HC Gus Bradley

Gus Bradley needs to get his defense to be consistent, and the offense to put up points with Bortles. Bradley said this week that they are game planning for 3 QBs to play on Sunday. Yikes. They must call better plays and let Bortles toss it up!

The Final Word

The season can still be saved!. They must perform well (and win!) Sunday to have any chance of making the playoffs, however. The Jaguars are much better with Bortles, and we think the Jaguars will be ready for the Titans, but who knows? Get ready for #BortlesKombat, because there’s a #StormWarning!

Jaguars vs. Colts: Home-Opener Preview

The Jacksonville Jaguars will face off against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, at 1:00 pm EST for the home opener of the 2014 regular season. View our predictions, stats, and more right here at Generation Teal!

The Jacksonville Jaguars have an 0-2 record so far this season, tied for last in the AFC South with the Colts. The Colts are much better than the Jaguars, no question. The Jaguars do have a chance to shock the world though. Who will earn the victory this time?

Our Prediction: Colts 35, Jaguars 3

With a horrible second game in 2014 and injuries mounting, the Jaguars will not be able to secure a win Sunday. With that being said, you have to expect the worst from the Jaguars. The offensive line needs to protect Chad Henne if the Jags want to win this game.

Key Jaguars Position: Offensive Line

Chad Henne has proven that he has what it takes to be a starting QB in my mind, but the offensive line is horrible right now and they need to be able to protect Henne against one of the worst pass-rushing defenses in the league.

Key Jaguars Player: Toby Gerhart

While I was tempted to put Luke Bowanko here, Toby Gerhart is the biggest question mark. Will he get 10 yards rushing? 20? Our prediction is 24 yards rushing, with 36 yards receiving. Although the Colts defense is not the best, Toby Gerhart does not have what it takes to be a starting running back. Gerhart is listed as probable for Sunday’s game vs. the Colts.

Blake Bortles

Blake Bortles had an outstanding preseason, as he threw for two touchdowns and over 500 yards. He sat out the first two games of the regular season. Chad Henne still gets the nod to start, but with a young offensive line, we could see Bortles sometime this season.

The Final Word

The Jaguars are going down the toilet fast. They must perform well (and win!) Sunday to have any chance of making the playoffs. While the Jaguars are “improving”, we don’t think the Jaguars will be ready for an opponent like the Colts, but who knows? Get ready for the home opener of the 2014 season!

The Aftermath: Eagles 34, Jaguars 17

The Jacksonville Jaguars put up a good fight in the first half, but ultimately they fell short at Philadelphia on Sunday, losing 34-17.

Allen Hurns

 The Jaguars fell just short at the end as they played conservative during the second half after 2 TD strikes to rookie free agent Allen Hurns. Chad Henne had a solid game vs. the Eagles, passing for over 260 yards and 2 touchdowns with 0 interceptions, for a passer rating of 89. Marqise Lee had a solid game, catching 6 balls for 62 yards. Allen Robinson had 1 catch for 0 yards. The defense had an outstanding game, picking off Nick Foles and forcing two fumbles (and recovering both!). Toby Gerhart had a rough day, running for just over 40 yards. The Jaguars led 17-0 at halftime but gave up 34 unanswered points in the second half.

PLAYER OF THE GAME: Allen Hurns

He caught four balls for 102 yards and two touchdowns… for a nomination for rookie of the week.

BEST SIDE OF BALL: DEFENSE

The offense may have had an outstanding first half, but fell apart during the second. The defense remained consistent and stopped Foles many times. They got worn out late in the game, but you can’t do anything about that.

JOSH SCOBEE

He had a rough day, hitting one for 49 yards out of three. He missed a 50 yard-er and had a 30 yard-er blocked. He made two out of two extra points.

BLAKE BORTLES

Did not play at all during the season opener…

 

We will have more in-depth analysis later during the week, so stay tuned to Generation Teal!

Jaguars vs. Eagles: 2014 Season Opener Preview

The Jacksonville Jaguars will face off against the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday, at 1:00 pm EST. View our predictions, stats, and more right here at Generation Teal!

 

Blake Bortles

The Jacksonville Jaguars have a 3-1 record against the Eagles in the regular season, but with the Eagles farther ahead than the Jags in their rebuilding process, who will earn the victory this time?

Our Prediction: Eagles 24, Jaguars 14

While the Jaguars are improving in what has been dubbed as “Year Two” under head coach Gus Bradley, the Eagles have a stunning offense compared to the Jags. The defense is key in this match up between the two teams.

Key Jaguars Player: Toby Gerhart

With Cecil Shorts III ruled out against the Eagles, and Chad Henne as the starting quarterback, our focus turns to the running game. The Jaguars need Gerhart to perform like Barry Sanders to have an impact for the Jags. He is filling in after MJD, so remember to keep an eye on him.

Blake Bortles

Blake Bortles had an outstanding preseason, as he threw for two touchdowns and over 500 yards. Chad Henne gets the nod to start, but with a young offensive line, we might see Bortles sometime this season.

The Final Word

While the Jaguars are improving, we don’t think the Jaguars will be ready for an opponent like the Eagles, but who knows? Get ready for the 2014 season!
