Jacksonville Jaguars vs. New York Jets: Prediction, preview, pick to win

Jaguars, Jets seeking consistency after impressive wins

And if the Jaguars can get some of that chunk yardage, on the strength of Bortles' arm and Leonard Fournette's legs, they'll probably be able to score multiple touchdowns. The Jags are 2-1 after a blowout win over the Ravens in London last week.

The Jaguars haven't been in any tight games yet, primarily because the turnover differential in two wins (+7) and the only defeat (minus-2) was substantial. I don't think they do. Although the Jaguars have a very solid defense, the Jets veteran finally has a chance with Matt Forte out, to show the coaching staff that he is an every down back. "It was like we just won one game and we plan on winning many more". The Jets have won the last three meetings, with the last coming in Week 9 of the 2015 season at MetLife Stadium, a 28-23 decision in which Chris Ivory, now a member of the Jaguars, rushed for two touchdowns and Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for two more. Well, if the Jets want to be successful in this game, they will have to test that against Marcedes Lewis.

"No one in this locker room thought we were going to go 0-16", tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins said. The Jets will have to be very disciplined in that scheme, but they have the players to do it. They got better from Weeks 1 and 2.

"You don't want to go there and say things or do things that you're just going to say to get it". The 199 yards is still the third-highest total by an AFC back after three games.

It also helps that Bortles has led the offense to a game-opening possession score each week, increasing the odds of the Jaguars' formula succeeding. Current Jets defensive lineman Muhammed Wilkerson recorded a sack that day.

"I just look at it as when you don't get a job, it's just you're not the person that they're looking for, which actually works out better", said Marrone, who was Jets' offensive line coach from 2002-05. He will look to carry the momentum from his big game into Sunday's game against a Jets' defense that ranks 13th in the league against the pass. They don't have the talent to score a ton, but if they can keep protecting McCown and not make any major mistakes they should be in a position to win this game. "The offense's goal is to be smart with the football and we have to find a way to give them two extra possessions [per game]. We have to win this game". He may have an even bigger role against a Jets defense that has been fairly efficient in shutting down running attacks as evidenced by its performance a week ago when it held Miami to 30 yards on the ground.

Keep in mind, the Jaguars are off to their best start since 2007 despite averaging only 4.2 yards per rush, a number skewed by Corey Grant's 58-yard run off a fake punt last week. But they're also dealing with a quick turnaround after coming back from London. "They're really good", Jets offensive coordinator John Morton said.
