As the late Al Davis said, "The quarterback must go down, and he must go down hard." Such is true when it comes to most quarterbacks and Browns QB Colt McCoy is no exception. According to the numbers from ProFootballFocus, McCoy's "Accuracy Percentage is 72.9 when there is no pressure and 53.6 when there is."

Getting pressure on McCoy can help the Jaguars to be the eighth consecutive team to hold the Browns to 17 points or fewer. Something that is virtually a necessity with the Jaguars struggling to break the 17 mark themselves. Pressuring McCoy is easier said than done, though, as Joe Thomas and former-Jaguar Tony Pashos have been a solid pair of pass blockers so far in 2011.

In fact, the pair is among the top of the pass blocking rankings at offensive tackle on ProFootballFocus. With Kampman almost certainly out on Sunday, the Jaguars will rely on starters Matt Roth and Jeremy Mincey to provide the pressure with John Chick coming in rotationally.
