Cowboys, Jaguars look for consistency

Sean's Scout Cowboys Punt Away Chance at Division Lead with Heartbreak in Houston

Sean's Scout Cowboys Punt Away Chance at Division Lead with Heartbreak in Houston

The Jags enter the matchup with a 3-2 record, coming off a loss to undefeated Kansas City.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are coming off a tough loss to the Kansas City Chiefs during which they allowed Patrick Mahomes and company to move the ball up and down the field easily on their way to 30 points. The Cowboys lost Sunday night, 19-16, to the Houston Texans.

Of course, T.J. Yeldon will continue to be the starter in Jacksonville while Fournette is out.

The Cowboys are 3.0 favorites at home The over/under is 40.5.

The Jaguars struggled on the road last week against the Chiefs.

Jacksonville has lost five fumbles and Blake Bortles has thrown seven interceptions.

Dede Westbrook, Keelan Cole and Donte Moncrief form a quick and savvy group that has accounted for nearly 60% of the Jaguars total receiving production. Yeldon is averaging 4.4 yards per carry, and has nearly 200 yards receiving and 4 total touchdowns. Blake Bortles remains as inconsistent as ever and injuries have crippled them further on that side of the ball. "You have to somehow, some way try to affect him with your pass rush". Fantasy tip: Bortles one of three in National Football League with three games of at least 375 yards passing this season.




The Cowboys offense continues to be an issue, and Jason Garrett has taken a lot of flak for punting on 4th-and-1 in Houston territory in overtime.

Another guy who could be on the hot seat if his play doesn't improve is QB Dak Prescott.

Beasley had his second career 100-yard receiving game with 101 yards on nine catches. The deep Bortles throw into triple-coverage was the last-ditch effort to mount any sort of a comeback, but instead became the Dallas secondary's second interception of the season. Once, Charles was among the most risky runners in the league. Randy Gregory: 22 months ago, Randy Gregory recorded the first sack of his career, taking down Carson Wentz in the 2016 regular season finale. The third-year passer ended the day completed 17 of his 27 passes for 183 yards and two touchdowns.

This game could be a slog. But here they were, surrendering 218 yards to the Cowboys with two minutes still remaining on the clock in the first half. Bortles could struggle against a vicious Dallas front that should be in his face consistently, and could force him into a turnover or 2. Depending on the week, your favorite team can convert you from devout believer to an agnostic or even an outright atheist.

Expect to see Lee back on the field soon in Dallas. The Jags defense has not tackled extremely well, and Dallas can exploit them with short passes, screens, and getting Zeke the ball in any and all ways.

"I think we were pretty fortunate past year as far as staying healthy", Bortles said. The Cowboys are going to have to take shots deep, with the hope of making some plays and drawing some flags.
