Josh Allen Jersey
<!-- body { font:12px Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; color: #000; background-color: #EEF2FB; margin: 0px; } --> Well Josh Allen Jersey , the Jacksonville Jaguars wrap up a miserable 2018 season against the Houston Texans on Sunday, and then will look to make improvements during the offseason. One such area the team surely needs to upgrade is the quarterback position, but for one last week (in all likelihood) Blake Bortles will be starting his last game for the Jags. The Jags and Texans have a deep rivalry, and that rivalry continues this week. For the final time in 2018, let’s review the series history. Series historyAll-time regular season series record: Houston Texans lead 20-13Postseason Record: N/ALast Jaguars win: Dec. 17, 2017 (45-7) Last Texans win: Oct. 21, 2018 (20-7) Current Streak: Texans won the last game Biggest Jaguars win: 45-7 (Dec. 17, 2017) Biggest Texans win: 30-6 (Jan. 3, 2016)Interesting takeaway: The Jaguars are just 5-11 (which, coincidently, will be the Jaguars 2018 season record if the team loses on Sunday) while playing the Texans on the road, but won the 2017 meeting in Houston and lost by a single point in the 2016 matchup. Quick thoughts: Historically, the Texans hold a seven-game advantage in the series. Before Jacksonville’s 2017 Week 1 demolition derby, the Texans had won the previous six matchups from 2014 through 2016. The Jags then briefly shifted the momentum with back-to-back blow out wins last season, but the Texans got back on the winning track in the first meeting of 2018. While the Texans win more often, a lot of games have been closely contested as 16 out of the 33 games between the two franchises have been decided by seven points or less. The Jaguars have played much better in Duval Jaelen Strong Jersey , winning 8 out of 17 meetings, while, as mentioned, above, the Texans has won 11 of the 16 meetings in Houston. Previous Matchup: Winner: TexansScore: 20-7Date: Oct. 21, 2018Location: EverBank Field, Jacksonville Team Stats: Jaguars — 217 passing yards,70 rushing yards, 15 first downsTexans — 139 passing yards,141 rushing yards, 15 first downsQuick recap: This game offered some foreshadowing, as it was the first time this season that Blake Bortles was benched in favor of Cody Kessler. Bortles would then start four more games before being benched indefinitely, and now we are back to Bortles as Kessler showed a complete lack of ability to lead an offense. This was not a blowout win by the Texans by any means, but three turnovers by the Jags (two fumbles by Bortles and one pick by Kessler) was the team’s undoing, while Houston did not turn the ball over once. Deshaun Watson was held in check with 139 passing yards, 13 rushing yards and one touchdown , while Lamar Miller ran for 100 yards and a score. The Jaguars simply couldn’t move the ball downfield. Jacksonville didn’t get on the board until late in the third quarter, and weren’t able to close the gap in the fourth quarter. Prior MatchupWinner: JaguarsScore: 45-7Date: Dec. 17, 2017Location: EverBank Field, JacksonvilleTeam Stats: Jaguars — 326 passing yards, 138 rushing yards, 25 first downsTexans — 128 passing yards, 87 rushing yards, 9 first downsQuick recap: The Jaguars absolutely destroyed the Texans on this day. This was the biggest win in terms of point differential in series history. Bortles carved up the Texans, completing 21 of 29 passes for 326 yards, three scores and zero picks (143.7 QB rating). Leonard Fournette sat this one out with a quad injury, and Chris Ivory, Corey Grant, T.J. Yeldon and Tommy Bohanon led the ground attack. Meanwhile, T.J. Yates was in for an injured Deshaun Watson and things didn’t go so well for him. Yates completed just 38 percent of his passes for 128 yards with one touchdown and one pick. The Jags jumped out to a 31-0 lead at halftime and never looked back.Through the Decades1990s: The Texans did not exist yet2000-2010: Tied 9-92011-Present: Houston 11-4Quick thoughts: It was a highly competitive series in the early going. Houston’s first season of competition was 2002 and the two teams each won nine of the first 18 matchups. But ever since the 2011 season, it has been all Texans. Houston has won 11 of the 15 contests since then, including seven of the past nine games. But Houston’s domination of Jacksonville came to a brief halt in 2017 Donte Moncrief Color Rush Jersey , before Houston’s win this past October. The Jaguars struggle in Houston, but have a one-game winning streak in Space City.Heading into the 2018 season finale, it’s good to see Bortles under center. He’s not a good quarterback, but he has always done things the right way, is easy to root for and honestly runs the offense better than Kessler. The Jaguars hurt themselves in terms of draft order with a win, but they can also knock Houston out of winning a divisional title, and that’s certainly not something they’re just going to lay down and let their rivals take. But Houston is just a much better team this year, so try as they might, it’s not going to be an easy game for the Jags. The Jaguars are big underdogs in this one, and I am sure the majority of fans are hoping for a loss to better Jacksonville’s draft position, but we’ve done a poll for 17 weeks straight and won’t stop now. Let us know. Earlier today, the Jacksonville Jaguars announced that they signed former Steelers quarterback Landry Jones to the active roster.ESPN’s Adam Schefter later clarified that the move was insurance for Blake Bortles, who mysteriously has a left shoulder injury that he sustained from this past weekend’s game against the Eagles in London. Nevertheless, Jaguars fans are intrigued by the team making a move at what has been the most tumultuous position on the roster this season.Who is Landry Jones?Landry Jones was a four-year starter at Oklahoma who played under co-offensive coordinators Jay Norvell and Josh Heupel, both of whom are currently NCAA head coaches for Nevada and UCF respectively. To this day, Jones holds the Big 12 record in career passing yards (16 Calais Campbell Jersey ,271) and unfortunately, also owns the Big 12 record for career interceptions (52). In his 53 career starts, Jones’ passer rating increased each year and he finished with a 63.6% career completion percentage. Jones was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the fourth round (115th overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft.In his five seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Jones appeared in 19 total games and made five starts (two in 2015, two in 2016, one in 2017) filling in for Ben Roethlisberger when injured or during week 17 rest weeks. In those five starts under offensive coordinator Todd Haley, Jones has a winning 3-2 record. In his lone start in 2017 against the Browns, Jones completed 85% of his passes for 239 yards with a touchdown and interception. Jones was released on September 1st, 2018 during final roster cuts after the Steelers had invested draft picks in developmental quarterbacks Joshua Dobbs and Mason Rudolph.Film RoomAt 6’4” 225-pounds, Landry Jones is a pure pocket passer with even less mobility than Cody Kessler. Much like Kessler, Jones is most effective in a West Coast Offense where he can rely on his ball placement and accuracy on short to intermediate routes, mainly slants and flats.Here is a good look of Jones fitting the ball into a tight window on a post.Jones does have a snappy release and gets the ball out in a hurry. Here’s a quick WR screen that went for a huge gain.While Jones is concise and urgent in his short and immediate distribution, his placement on deep passes can be erratic. Working off play action here, if Jones leads JuJu Smith-Schuster who beats his man, it’s a touchdown. Instead, Smith-Schuster has to come back to the underthrow and bail him out.As mentioned above , Jones is the all-time Big 12 leader in interceptions, and he hasn’t exactly been the best custodian of the football in the NFL (8 TDs, 7 INTs). Decision-making is a question mark, as you can see him force a pass here to Juju Smith-Schuster into double coverage when he had an easier option underneath to the running back for an easy first down on 2nd & 9.Here’s another weird decision, as Martavis Bryant is schemed open with an assist from a rub from the slot receiver Eli Rogers, but he goes to the covered Rogers anyway for a high-difficulty throw.ConclusionLook, Landry Jones worked out for the Bills a few weeks ago and they chose to sign a half-retired Derek Anderson instead. They could have signed Jones after their poor Monday Night Football outing against the Patriots, but chose to bring in Matt Barkley today. Same goes for the 49ers, who chose to go with Tom Savage after bringing Landry in for a workout. In reality, Jones is simply a taller Cody Kessler with less mobility. If this team is going to make a change to a different quarterback, whether it is Bortles injury or performance-related, it’s going to be Kessler. Jones is just another body if Bortles can’t go, for whatever reason. Cap probably said it best:
