Ravens Vs. Jaguars: Defense Has To Stop Ravens Early

When the Jacksonville Jaguars play the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football, an early area to watch will be the Jaguars defense. As Adam pointed out earlier in the week, the Jaguars defense is struggling to stop opening drives. In four of their six opening drives in 2011, they've allowed a touchdown. In all four of those games they've lost. On Monday Night, they'll be facing a Ravens team who's outscored their opponants in the first quarter 59-7.

The Ravens are an offense that has opened up a bit with the addition of rookie speed wide receiver Torrey Smith, so the Jaguars will need to limit the big plays in the passing game, something they didn't do early on last Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Jaguars defense tightend up after the early onslaught against the Steelers, but with the way the Jaguars offense has failed to get into the endzone, giving up early points can be crushing to this football team.
