Our Prediction:

Jacksonville Jaguars – Miami Dolphins Match Prediction | 22-08-2019

As long as the Jaguars behave themselves and show no signs of blatant quitting, he should be fine in my opinion. With lack of discipline and preparation being an enormous concern for this football team, if any player(s) lose their mind in the middle of a game with a bad personal foul penalty or if players throw a fit or get pouty on the sideline, that could be a mitigating factor to push the envelope out of Marrones favor. Its likely that Doug Marrone gets another shot in 2019 regardless of the results of these final two games, but how they lose can still change the mind of decision-makers. Lastly, who is coming back next year from the coaching staff?

Ngakoue still needs three sacks to get to double-digits on the season will he get there? Luckily for him, even if he doesnt snag one this Sunday, he gets human turnstile Julien Davenport with the Texans next week. Tunsil has had an outstanding season and frankly was deserving of Pro Bowl honors, so this should be a tough challenge. Ngakoue has back-to-back difficult match ups after battling exceptional left tackle Trent Williams last week.

With that said, Robert Quinn is exactly the type of speed rusher that Flowers has traditionally struggled with and needs to string together another solid performance on Sunday. The audition for Ereck Flowers returning as the teams utility swing tackle in 2019 continues this week. Flowers has been surprisingly fine since taking the starting left tackle and his durability and versatility to play both spots makes him a good candidate to return.

Tampa Bay seized the opportunity and struck at the last moment. Miami Dolphins are looking to be in a better shape than Jacksonville and they hold a better record on the preseason at the moment. The Dolphins managed to win their first game, but their last match against Tampa Bay Buccaneers was unsuccessful. Miami Dolphins had control over the game, but their last few seconds were unfortunate. The Dolphins played well against Tampa Bay and finally the ended in a close game with a final score of 14-16. With seven carries in 51 yards, the Dolphins had Patrick Laird take the lead for their team. Jake Rudock and Josh Rosen coordinated well for their team as they covered 174 passing yards together.

Left tackle and former first round pick Laremy Tunsil has had his best season to date, but he is fighting through a knee injury that Yannick Ngakoue should work to take advantage of. Hopefully, Taven Bryan can continue to build off last weeks performance to get his first sack (unless the NFL does a stat correction for the sack he should have had last week). Offensively, the Dolphins have faced injury adversity along the offensive line (sound familiar?) and will be starting Ted Larsen, Travis Swanson, and Jesse Davis on the interior.

That came on Nov. 10, 2002, which was Coughlins last season as the Jaguars head coach. 14, 2014) was the last time Bortles did not play in a game for the Jaguars. The last time these teams met (Sept. He replaced Chad Henne at halftime the following week and has started every game since. The Jaguars have beaten the Redskins just once in six meetings.

Dede is a star. Hes been this teams offensive player of the year in my personal opinion, and if he ever gets the semblance of a legitimate quarterback behind center, he will take this league by storm. Westbrook was a deep threat Z receiver at Oklahoma where he earned Biletnikoff honors and quite frankly hes been relegated to the slot this season due to the ineptitude around him and has still shown consistently. If Westbrook is in the slot this week, hell likely see nickel cornerback Bobby McCain and if he moves outside for some quick screens or crossers, he will likely see impressive first round rookie Minkah Fitzpatrick.

The Dolphins biggest weakness is their interior defensive line, and their 145.2 rushing yards per game allowed is second worst in the league after the Oakland Raiders. Pro Bowl cornerback Xavien Howard, who had some very nasty things to say about the Jaguars this week, is trending towards playing this week despite a knee injury and should comfortably blanket Donte Moncrief. Defensively, the Dolphins are fairly underrated against the pass and should give this inept Jaguars air attack fits. Cam Wake and Robert Quinn have had stellar seasons applying pressure from the edges and should have their way with Ereck Flowers and Josh Wells. Honestly, Cody Kessler may die this week.
