2013 Opponents Preview: Jacksonville Jaguars
As the 2013 season approaches, ClevelandBrowns.com looks at the Browns’ regular-season opponents. Today, we highlight the Dec. 1, home game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Cleveland Browns welcome the Jacksonville Jaguars back to FirstEnergy Stadium for a game in November or later for the fifth time since the 2001 season. In those cold-weather games, the Browns are 2-2, having won the last two meetings, 23-17 on Jan. 3, 2010, and 20-14 on Nov. 20, 2011. Overall, the Browns have won three of their last four games against the Jaguars after losing their first six meetings and eight of the first 10 in the series dating back to 1995.

Jones-Drew enters his ninth NFL season, which is not young for a running back. In fact, in NFL running back years, it’s pretty darned old. He also missed 10 games last season with a significant foot injury and had microfracture knee surgery following the 2010 season. There is little doubt what Jones-Drew has been able to do in his NFL career. There is little doubt what he has meant to this organization.

That’s what makes this a very important year for Jones-Drew.

Many of us have even served or are currently serving.
