Jaguars Vs Eagles Predictions Trevor Lawrence

It’s another NFL cross-conference showdown on the Week 4’s Sunday lineup, this game featuring the AFC-South-leading Jacksonville Jaguars who are traveling up north to face the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles, two teams on a roll that are going to fight hard for this W.

In Week 3, the Jacksonville Jaguars took care of the LA Chargers, 38-10, and now HC Doug Pederson’s group sits atop the AFC South as he travels to take on his old Philly team, but now he has a talented young QB named Trevor Lawrence and a top-6 offense and top-7 defense.

After three weeks, the Philadelphia Eagles are the only undefeated NFC team thanks to the flashy and effective play of QB Jalen Hurts who can do damage with his rocket arm and speedy legs as DT Fletcher Cox and his gang of QB hunters roam the NFL with 12 total sacks (so far).

Jacksonville Jaguars vs Philadelphia Eagles Predictions

Can Jaguars HC Doug Pederson Game Plan a Third Win in a Row?

The Jacksonville Jaguars’ front office has recovered well from last year’s critical head coaching mistake by bringing in Doug Pederson, a veteran leader with an impressive NFL resume that includes Super Bowl Championships both as a former player and as a head coach.

Now Pederson has been hired to not only win but also to further the stilted development of QB Trevor Lawrence who, like the rest of the team, suffered greatly under last year’s HC Urban Meyers, and already the difference is evident via the top-6 offense and boosted QB confidence.

Now Jacksonville has won two games in a row for the first time since the 2019 season, so for that reason alone, it will be an impressive feat to beat the undefeated Eagles, not to mention the fact that they are Pederson’s former team who eventually fired him after the 2020 season.

Can Eagles QB Jalen Hurts Scramble Against the Jag’s Top-7 Defense?

What Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts brings to the football table is the ability to squeeze out of the pocket and either throw on the run or use his speed and quickness to avoid tackles and earn first downs and more, a dual threat that OC Shane Steichen is employing effectively.

The question is whether Hurts can do that in Week 4 against the Jaguars’ 7th ranked defense who already have seven sacks and three forced fumbles on the season and who have kept rushing opponents to just 55 yards per game which is currently the best in the NFL.

Hurts has also completed over 67 percent of his passes to a talented group of targets – WRs Devonta Smith, Quez Watkins, A.J. Brown, and TE Dallas Goedert – plus the team’s 7th-ranked rushing attack adds an additional threat for which the Jacksonville defense will have to account.

Jaguars Key Players: (RBs) James Robinson and Travis Etienne

For all the damage QB Trevor Lawrence can do with his arm, the Jaguars rushing attack can also do on the ground, ranked a top-10 unit after three games generating 123.3 rush yards per game, so far with 370 total, their two main backs being James Robinson and Travis Etienne.

Robinson is a 24-year-old Illinois State product who’s in his 3rd NFL season, all with Jacksonville, a member of the PFWA All-Rookie Team in 2020 who has 57 total touches for 263 yards from scrimmage and a league-leading 4 rushing and receiving touchdowns in 3 games.

Also in the Jags’ backfield is Etienne, the 23-year old former first-round pick now in his second NFL season after having missed his rookie year due to a significant Lisfranc injury to his foot, now on the field and with 34 touches for 193 yards from scrimmage, 5.7 yards per touch.

Eagles Key Player: (DT) Fletcher Cox

Fans of both teams will no doubt be watching for Eagles DT Fletcher Cox, the veteran sack specialist now in his eleventh NFL season (all in Philadelphia) who already has three sacks on the season along with five QB hits, a forced fumble, and eight tackles with one for a loss.

Cox played his college football at Mississippi State where he was a First-team All-American and a First team All-SEC defensive star, but at the pro level is where the Yazoo City native really shines now with a Super Bowl Championship ring as a First team All-Pro and 6x Pro Bowler.

On Sunday, Cox and his sacking teammates who already have 12 QB takedowns in just three games will face the Jaguars DEs – Roy Robertson-Harris and Folorunso Fatukasi – who protect second-year QB Trevor Lawrence who has only been sacked twice so far this young season.
