Five things to watch: Jaguars-Broncos - Jacksonville Jaguars Blog - ESPN
Having two rookie safeties on the field against Peyton Manning is never good, but that’s what the Jaguars are going to do on Sunday. Johnathan Cyprien and Josh Evans were drafted to form the backbone of the secondary, but both of them being on the field at the same time wasn’t expected to happen until next season. Evans was forced into the lineup by an injury to Dwight Lowery and has played well enough that the team put Lowery (concussion) on IR this week and will cut him when he has been declared healthy. Cyprien and Evans are looking forward to facing Manning and Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker and Eric Decker. They’re going to get beat, but it will be a good learning experience for them.

Finally, though, last week at St. Louis, we were able to see what offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch and receivers coach Jerry Sullivan had been plotting. Shorts (59), Blackmon (58) and Sanders (54) combined to play 171 snaps and figure to get the same kind of workload Sunday at Denver.
Jacksonville Jaguars could beat Denver Broncos
Well, here at The MMQB, we’ve written quite a lot about team No. 32 this week, the Jacksonville Jaguars. Much has centered on the concept that this is one horrible team, with so much to do to even think .500 is an option, with such an impossible dream: Jacksonville, 0-5, the lowest-scoring team in football, at Denver, 5-0, the highest-scoring team in football. But I am here to tell you some good news, fans of Jags. I am here to tell you how to beat the Denver Broncos this weekend.
