Beware of the Jaguars

By Marc A. Greenberg

Looking at the AFC Standings (wins by Cincy and San Diego), there is no doubt that Sundays game against the 4-4 Jacksonville Jaguars is a big game. Big big game. (have I said Big enough?) .

With a 24-21 Win against the Chiefs, in a blacked-out game, the Jaguars come to New York with QB David Garrard, RB Maurice Jones-Drew and WR Mike Sims-Walker who all clicked on Sunday against the Chiefs and look to improve on their 1-3 road record this year.

For the numbers guys, the Jags 8 games this year are: Loss, Loss, Win, Win, Loss, Win, Loss, Win.  Included in that was an embarrasing 30-13 loss to Tennessee 2 weeks ago and a 41-0 drubbing from Seattle 4 weeks ago.

While the Jags have been off and on this year, the Jets need to step it up big time Sunday. Jones-Drew has 737 yards with 11 TDs this season and will look to carry the ball over 25 times.  The Jaguars defense, on the 0ther hand, has only 8 sacks this year with 5 INTs and has recently switched back to the 4-3 from the 3-4.  The Jets should look to the running game and control the clock.
