TIGHT END BATTLE: Zach Miller versus Zach Miller

This Sunday when the Jacksonville Jaguars face off against the Oakland Raiders, it's going to be Miller time. The Oakland Raiders are going to need to worry about Jaguars tight end Zach Miller, who's come on as of late as a viable weapon in the offense. Last week, the Jaguars incorporated a couple of end-arounds to the tight end (which I am NOT a fan of, by the way) and incorporated the versatile Miller more in the offense. On the flip-side, the Jaguars are going to need to square off against the Pro-Bowl Raider tight end... Zach Miller.

Miller time!

The Evil Zach Miller, as he shall be called for now, is recovering from a leg contusion but should be able to play on Sunday. While Evil Zach Miller has never met the Good Zach Miller, he did receive his insurance card once in the mail. Evil Zach Miller is having a down season by his standards, with only 38 grabs for 481 yards and 4 touchdowns. Typically, Evil Miller has finished the season in the 50-65 reception mark. That's still possible, but Evil Miller has been playing hurt the past few weeks and only has 5 receptions in the last five games.

Good Zach Miller on the other hand, has 10 receptions in the last four games for 140 yards. It's entirely possible that the Good Zach Miller could outperform the Bad Zach Miller on Sunday, even though Good Miller is technically a back-up tight end.
