The Jacksonville Jaguars struggled to run the football on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, picking up just 64 yards on the ground on 25 carries. On Sunday, they'll be facing a Washington team without their veteran starting nose tackle, Barry Cofield.

Washington gave up over 100 yards to the Houston Texans in their 17-6 loss on Sunday, though they gave up only 3.5 yards a carry as a whole. The Jaguars would probably take averaging 3.5 yards per carry after their performance against the Eagles, though.
With Cofield out, the Jaguars could have an opportunity to get the game going and feed Toby Gerhart, who started to pick up chunks of yardage later in the game against the Eagles on Sunday. It sounds like Washington will slide defensive end Chris Baker to nose tackle in place of Cofield, which means the team will have either Kedric Golston or Jarvis Jenkins at the left end position.
