So the Jags went and shocked the NFL world on Sunday beating the much fancied Indianapolis Colts and Gardner Minshew looking like a franchise QB, completing 95% of his pass attempts and 3 passing TD’s and not turning the ball over. On defense this is far from a top tier Jacksonville defense but some guys impressed me especially rookie Corner, CJ Henderson (who was my CB #1 coming out) and Myles Jack who really is the leader of this defense now.
The Titans made real hard work of beating an underpowered Broncos team but I’m taking into consideration it was the first game of the year and in the altitude of Mile High which is never an easy place to play. Derrick Henry got what seems to be his customary 100 + yards on the ground and Corey Davis had a DAY going for over 100 receiving yards. The defense kept the Broncos offense in check and the Jags don’t offer anything more than the Broncos did in my opinion.
I don’t see the Jags pulling off the win in Tennessee and going 2-0 in the division to start the year. I took the Titans to win the division before the season started and I see them getting the W to move to 2-0 today.
Betting wise I’ve got to take the man who seems to own the Jags every time he plays them, Derrick Henry has 10 TD’s in 8 games vs divisional rivals, Jacksonville Jaguars and after over 100 yards without a score on Monday I like him to make up for it here. I also think Ryan Tannehill is a sneaky play yo get himself a rushing TD here.
