Jaguars vs. Bengals: Week 7 sack analysis

Photo by Al Pereira/Getty Images

Geno Atkins had his way early, but the offensive line (eventually) tightened up in pass protection.

The Jacksonville Jaguars offense took two-and-a-half quarters, but they finally got back on track last week against the Cincinnati Bengals, scoring a go-ahead touchdown (and two-point conversion) in the third quarter that produced a lead they would never look back from.

Before then? It was rough — Gardner Minshew was under pressure often and two early...

Jaguars vs. Jets: Week 8 fantasy predictions and more

The Jacksonville Jaguars can get back to .500, they’re at home, and they boast a productive offense paired with a defense coming off of a four-turnover performance.

The New York Jets are on a short week, they just got shutout on national television, and their quarterback is seeing ghosts.

On paper, this looks like a game where several Jacksonville players could be in for a big day, but let’s take a closer look at who you should...

Jaguars could lose DT Marcell Dareus for four to six weeks

Marcell Dareus is currently on his way to Philadelphia to visit Dr. William Meyers to receive a second opinion on a core muscle injury that could cause the defensive tackle to miss four to six weeks, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. Dareus has been a key cog in the Jacksonville defensive line, but has struggled with injuries throughout the year. Dareus missed the Jaguars' first game of the season with an elbow injury and the defense was scorched for 40 points, albeit by the high-flying...

Jaguars QB Nick Foles returns to practice

The Jaguars will have quarterback Nick Foles back at practice Wednesday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. While Rapoport mentions that the team does not intend to activate him until Week 11, it’s an important progression in his return. Foles, of course, has been out since he broke his collarbone in the team’s first game of the season against the Chiefs. Rookie signal-caller Gardner Minshew has been impressive since filling in, but the team has given no indication that Foles will not...

Plan is to activate Foles for Week 11

EDIT: Pump the brakes. Rapoport clarified his comment basically as I hit publish. Yay.

To clarify, the plan is for Nick Foles to be elevated to the active roster for Week 11. https://t.co/hgnik2TRaD

Marcell Dareus could miss 4-6 weeks if surgery is needed

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars have been hit with the injury bug lately, but one of the areas that has avoided some injuries has been the defensive line, with the exception of defensive tackle Marcell Dareus who has had a couple of issues. Dareus’ most recent issue could sideline him for a good chunk of the season, though.

Minshew has 1/3 odds of being Week 1 starter in 2020

Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images

Through the first seven weeks of the Jacksonville Jaguars’ season, the storyline has largely been sixth round rookie quarterback Gardner Minshew stepping into the starting role and doing much better than expected.

So good, in fact, that SportsBettingDime.com is giving Minshew incredibly likely odds of being the Week 1 starter in 2020.

Minshew: 1/3

Foles: 7/2

Field: 35/1

In short, what this means is if you put a $100 bet on Minshew being the starter in...

Josh Lambo wins AFC Special Teams Player of the Week

Jacksonville Jaguars fifth-year kicker Josh Lambo has been named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his 13-point performance in the team’s Week 7 victory against the Cincinnati Bengals. The recognition is Lambo’s second of the season as he also received the award in Week 4 after kicking the game-winning field goal at Denver.

On Sunday, Lambo made all four field goal attempts and his only point after try, and, through Week 7, has made 18 of 18...

The Jacksonville Jaguars added to their linebacker group on Wednesday by adding former Super Bowl MVP Malcolm Smith to the roster, according to multiple reports.

Jaguars to sign former Super Bowl MVP LB Malcolm Smith

The Jaguars are set to sign linebacker Malcolm Smith, a league source tells ESPN.com’s Michael DiRocco (on Twitter). Smith will help replenish the club’s depth after a costly victory against the Bengals on Sunday. Smith spent the last two seasons in San Francisco. Years before that, he reached the pinnacle of the game with the Seahawks, capturing the Lombardi Trophy and the Super Bowl XLVIII MVP Award. Things, unfortunately, haven’t been the same since that February night. The one-time...

Marrone: Harrison can be “an excellent player in this league”

The Jacksonville Jaguars have gotten an absurd amount of production out of their young players on defense and it’s leading to wins, despite having a sixth round rookie quarterback and inconsistencies along the offensive line.

Josh Allen has a team high 5.0 sacks.

Jarrod Wilson is third on the team with 34 tackles and has stepped in well to the free safety spot.

Taven Bryan has seemingly turned a corner with multiple pressures that have led to...

Eagles to meet with defensive lineman Datone Jones

The Eagles’ search for defensive help continues this week. Next up – a workout with free agent defensive lineman Datone Jones (Twitter link via NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport). Jones spent the offseason with the Jaguars, but was dropped before final cuts. The Colts and Raiders also took recent looks at Jones, but did not sign him. The 29-year-old is looking to get back into the NFL mix – he saw time in just eight NFL games between 2017 and 2018, a far cry from his usage early on with the...

Let’s answer some questions after the Jacksonville Jaguars’ Week 7 win against the Cincinnati Bengals!

Austen from Fleming Island, FL

Q: Were Gardner Minshew and the Jaguars good? Or were the Bengals just horrible?

A: More of the latter. The Jaguars offense, specifically Gardner Minshew, did not look great in the first half of Sunday’s game. The Bengals, one of the worst defenses in the league, was stifling this offense. But then Minshew calmed...

Fournette brings consistency

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars offense in 2019 has been a pretty wild ride of some exciting plays, long boring droughts and heart pounding last minute magic, but threw the past month or so there has always been one consistent.

Running back Leonard Fournette.

If you told me that before the season, I would have laughed.

I’ve seen quite a few people say that Fournette is finally back to his 2017 form as a rookie, but in all honesty I completely disagree with...
