По умолчанию Following a bye week, and less than stellar start to the first half of the season , the Jacksonville Jaguarshit the road to take on the AFC South rival Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday. This is a must-win game for Jacksonville to keep its slim AFC South title hopes alive. Hopefully the Jaguars were able to use the bye week to correct the on-the-field issues that were plaguing the team, as well as try to get the team chemistry and morale up. Jacksonville is basically in survival mode from here on out, and cannot afford to lose if it wants to make it back to the postseason. It’s time to get back to our weekly history lessons. Let’s recap the head-to-head series between the Colts and Jaguars. Series historyAll-time regular season series record: Colts lead 22-12Last Jaguars win: Dec. 3, 2017 (30-10)Last Colts win: Jan. 1 2017 (24-20)Current Streak: Jags with a two-game winning streakBiggest Jaguars win: 51-16 (Dec. 13, 2015)Biggest Colts win: 43-14 (Sept. 25, 2000)Interesting takeaway: Jacksonville swept Indianapolis last year, and that was just the second occurence ever that the Jaguars were able to win both games against the Colts in the same season (2011-2012 season was the first time). Quick thoughts: The Jaguars have defeated the Colts in four of the past five contests, but Indianapolis had won all six games prior to that. Looking at the full history, the Jags and Colts only met twice prior to the conference realignment in 2002. Indianapolis (AFC East), beat Jacksonville (AFC Central), in both of those contests. Then the Colts won the next three games while both teams began competition in the AFC South. Jacksonville finally got its first win against Indy in 2003, and another one the next season in 2004. The Colts hold a large advantage overall, but the series is tied at seven wins a piece since 2011. Previous MatchupWinner: JaguarsScore: 30-10Date: Dec. 3, 2017Location: EverBank Field, JacksonvilleTeam Stats: Jaguars — 338 passing yards, 96 rushing yards, 22 first downsColts — 174 passing yards, 141 rushing yards, 17 first downsQuick recap: Blake Bortles tends to beat up on the Colts, and he did so twice in 2017. On this particular day, Bortles completed 74 percent of passes for 309 yards, two touchdowns and zero turnovers. Leonard Fournette added a touchdown, and Josh Lambo tacked on a couple of field goals. A lot of wide receivers got involved with Marqise Lee securing seven catches for 86 yards and a touchdown, while Keelan Cole had 49 receiving yards and a score, and Dede Westbrook added six catches for 78 yards. The defense had a strong performance with four sacks and two interceptions. Brad Nortman even completed a pass. It was a great all-around performance — man, I miss 2017.Prior MatchupWinner: JaguarsScore: 27-0Date: Oct. 22, 2017Location: Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis Team Stats: Jaguars — 330 passing yards, 188 rushing yards, 23 first downsColts — 200 passing yards, 96 rushing yards, 15 first downsQuick recap: Even without Leonard Fournette, the Jaguars rushed for 188 yards on the legs of T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory. This was another strong performance from Blake Bortles Logan Cooke Color Rush Jersey , who had 330 passing yards, one touchdown, zero interceptions and a quarterback rating of 124.7. The defense was incredible, sacking Jacoby Brissett 10 times and holding Indianapolis to just 232 total yards. This was also Josh Lambo’s first game as a Jaguar, and the kicking game concerns from the previous weeks of that season were quickly put to rest as he made all of his extra point and field goal attempts. This was pure domination by Jacksonville, and the end result was the Jaguars’ first shutout win since 2006. Through the Decades1990s: Colts 1-0 (1995)2000-2010: Colts lead 14-52011-Present: Tied 7-7Quick thoughts: While the Colts dominated early, winning eight of the first 10 matchups overall, it is the Jaguars that have been making a comeback. The Colts held the advantage in the 1990s (granted, that was only one game in Jacksonville’s first year as a competing NFL franchise) and early 2000s, but Jacksonville has closed the gap. As mentioned earlier, the series is tied with seven wins each since 2011, and since 2008, Indy’s advantage is just 11-9. Indianapolis easily dominated from 2000 through 2010, which gives them the lopsided advantage in the series overall. But perhaps times are changing. This year’s matchup is an important game for both teams currently sitting at 3-5 and looking to make a run after an unspectacular start. The Colts have won two in a row and are humming on offense, but their defense leaves a lot to be desired. Meanwhile, the Jags have struggled with giving the ball away, lack of protection and lack of a run game on offense, while the defense has not made enough of the necessary big plays (turnovers, sacks, etc.) to mitigate the offense’s ineptitude. Something has to change this week, and I think it does. The Jags get the big divisional win on the road. Which team do you believe walks away victorious in this AFC South battle? With the Jacksonville Jaguars’ horses turning into glue before our very eyes, general manager Dave Caldwell has done some jockeying to add a few former Broncos to the running back stable.For the past 48 hours, local media and Jaguars fans alike have pounded the table to trade for proven veteran running backs such as Le’veon Bell, Mark Ingram and Tevin Coleman, to name a few.While this may have provided excellent fodder for debate, it was never happening. This regime is finally at the point of being a good roster that lets talent walk and accruing compensatory picks - not spending draft capital on knee-jerk panic moves. Instead of buying high on a temporary band aid, the Jaguars were wise in mining the bargain bin to find a couple of guys to carry the football, and the two players they opted for could not be more opposite of one another.Turning 32 in December, Jamaal Charles is an experienced veteran whose 5.4 yards per carry still ranks as the highest in NFL history for running backs. Charles appeared in 14 games for the Broncos last season as a rotational role player and compiled 296 yards on 69 carries (nice) for a 4.3 yards per carry average as their RB2. In addition, Charles tacked on 23 catches on 28 targets, and his 82.1% catch rate was actually the highest in his entire NFL career spanning nine seasons with the Chiefs. A direct replacement for Corey Grant on this roster, Charles may not have the spry legs to flash the incendiary speed that Grant possessed, but his superior pass blocking ability and vision running between the tackles could actually make him a more valuable asset to this offense than Grant was.Let’s take a look at some examples of how Charles could help from his 14 games as a Bronco last year:Charles’ vision and patience is obvious, even at this advanced stage of his career. Unlike Grant Andrew Norwell Jersey , Charles will wait for blocks to develop and knows when to accelerate into the second level. As an added bonus, Charles is capable of running out of shotgun formations as well as behind a lead blocking fullback in I-formation and wishbone packages.Another thing that Charles still has is elusiveness. In this example, Charles teleports despite immediate pressure in the backfield to still pick up a gain on a play that should have went for a loss. Not to pile on Grant, but he simply lacked the wiggle and lateral burst to pull off a move like this as his game was predicated more on linear foot speed.Conversely, while Charles still has ample burst left, his foot speed has faded. He’s north of thirty years old - it happens. In the clip above, you can see Charles get chased down by a defensive end (Jerry Hughes) as he tries to race to the sideline. Substitute Grant into this situation and he likely smokes Hughes.Whenever Charles was in the game for the Broncos last year, he wasn’t asked to pass block very often. In the passing game, he was mostly asked to run into the flats, very similar to what Yeldon is asked to do as a receiver out of the backfield. Charles is physical enough to chip a rusher when necessary and provides much more in that arena than Grant, who struggled mightily in blitz pick up. It was one of his most attractive attributes at Kansas City and as long as he is still willing, those skills shouldn’t have eroded.Towards the end of December 2017, Charles asked for his release from the Broncos once they were eliminated from contention to give himself an opportunity to latch on with a playoff team come January. This never came intro fruition of course, but it’s clear that Charles is motivated by one thing – ring chasing. That type of motivation could be much more powerful for this Jaguars team over a guy like Le’Veon Bell, who is purely motivated by paper at this point in his career.As experienced as Jamaal Charles is, former Razorback running back David Williams is equally inexperienced. A seventh round pick by Denver in this most recent draft, Williams was usurped on the roster by the very impressive undrafted rookie Phillip Lindsay and simply became the odd man out despite showing some nice flashes in the preseason. Tipping the scales at 6’0” 224-pounds, Williams will be a potential solution as a physical power back who can pick up short yards and move the pile forward in the red zone. He might not get a ton of carries in the next week or two, but Williams has a terrific opportunity to stake a claim for a roster spot in 2019 and beyond considering T.J. Yeldon and Corey Grant are both free agents after this season.Williams had some flash plays in preseason and I wanted to go back to his tape at Arkansas to see what type of player the Jaguars are getting. When I pull clips from college tape, I always like to start with the best competition, and few defenses are better than LSU.A power back, Williams routinely broke arm tackles and runs into contact with good pad level and forward momentum. Not only can you break through arm tackles, Williams has the lower body strength to fight for extra yards. In this clip, you can see Williams move the pile for an extra ten yards or so after he gets bottled up. That’s the type of runner that the Jags are looking for in Williams in his limited snaps. With a healthy David Williams in the game this past week, do the Jaguars throw it twice on third and short in the red zone? We’ll never know. While he’s strong, he’s not purely a power back and there is some elusiveness to his game. In the above play, Williams looks like he’s doomed on the pitch as very good cornerback Donte Jackson has him lined up for a big tackle for loss, and Williams jukes him out of his shoes to pick up a gain. This is an element of his game that seemingly has carried over into the preseason.Williams never had a 100-yard rushing game for Arkansas and never carried the football more than 15 times a game. And that’s fine, because he won’t be asked to do either of those things for the Jaguars. They just need him to bang it between the tackles, and his body is built to do so.The Jaguars running game looks vastly different than it did this time a week ago, but these are two logical moves for a team that needs some experience and physicality at the position in a year where they can challenge for a championship. The best part? Neither player costs you a draft pick in a trade. The question now becomes how quickly can they pick up the offense? We’ll get that answer this Sunday in a sink-or-swim debut game against the Dallas Cowboys.
