GDT: Week 2 Patriots head to the Jungle

Recommended Posts

Michel in, Hill out. Will be interesting to see if the young CBs get activated or if J. McCourty stays on the active roster, he didn't play much yesterday. Hollister should also be back. 

I think the Pats win a close game but I don't expect a lot of scoring. The WRs will struggle to gain seperation and they match up pretty well with Gronk as well. I think the defense comes up big though.

Jacob Hollister figures to be activated going forward with Hill out I think.

 

Like David Thomas week two against the Jaguars in 2006 or thereabouts.

Will be too close for comfort, I'd imagine.

Might even predict a tight loss here. Jags will be preparing for a RB/TE passing game all week.

I think we match up really well against the Jags. If Fournette doesnt play, I think its a win. Not a runaway but firmly in hand with a 10 pt lead throughout. If Fournette plays and is healthy I think this is a last second score kinda game.

We could be in for a typical early season road let down. This is going to be not only Jacksonville's revenge game, but statement game as well.

Fournette's injury is described as minor, so he'll more than likely be a full go.

Bottling up Watson is promising, but he's rusty from his ACL tear. That trend needs to continue against Bortles. I'm confident Belichick and Flores can dial something up to confuse Bortles and force him into one of his typical mistakes, but we can not let him run around.

Hopefully the team got the wake up call from McCarron's release. Despite the win, we can not have silly giveaways like McCarron's muffed punt. We lose this game if we lose the turnover battle.

It'll be close this game, but the Patriots are a clearly superior team matched up against the Jags.

Did you know...

 

The Patriots have outscored the Jaguars 327-193 all-time, which is an average score of 27.25 to 16.08 per game. In Jacksonville, however, the margin shrinks significantly to an average score of 20.75 to 20.5 in favor of the Pats (83-82 total score).

 

I expect they'll play a lot of man coverage, and specifically keep tight to Gronk and the RBs. They will prioritise taking Gronk away, by whatever means (cough). Ramsey will simply shut down whoever we scheme out over there (apart from Gronk, if we do that) - so we will have to rely on outsmarting this aggressive and capable defense. The OL needs to hold up to their 4/5 man rush (doubt they send many more, as the script seems to be the rush as few as you can get away with). Will probably need some form of luck like last week's example (BOB's non-TO).

Just so close. 1 point in it, either way, is my pick.

Low scoring affair incoming. 

Burkhead with a concussion makes things even tougher.

Might have to sign Darkwa now.

I’d be all for it. Darkwa isn’t special but he’s a solid RB. Played reasonably well behind an atrocious Giants OL.
