There are Sunday where you wake up and breathe in the fresh air of optimism. You read the previews for your team over a cup of coffee and chat up a couple of friends before watching the afternoon game. Maybe your team isn’t the greatest, but hey, anything can happen on Sunday, right?
Except this Sunday.
Jacksonville is facing off against one of the top ten passing defenses in the NFL. Yes, as you can see, the Packers are 4-3, but they’ve lost by totals of 8,2 and 3 points. Now, the Packers defense isn’t the best, but for that to be taken advantage of, Jacksonville would need a good offense.
Jacksonville does not have a good offense. And keep in mind we’ll have Blaine Gabbert out there with a tweaked shoulder. And no MJD. I think we should wear black jerseys with heaters surrounding the field just to keep adding to the handicaps we enter the Frozen Tundra with.
So, what will we see this Sunday? A lot of Rodgers airing it to Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Jermichael Finley, and Jacksonville racking up an impressive amount of three-and-outs.
The Jaguars defense won’t have to worry much, since the Pack can move the ball up and down the field, so they won’t be on the field for very long. There’s always that.
So, there you have it. Most likely my shortest preview for a game that will feel very long for Jaguars fans.
Green Bay 35, Jacksonville 6
