Eli Manning makes a lot of sense for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2018 -
Eli Manning is a lot like Blake Bortles in one critical area: They're both turnover machines.

Both average 1.3 per game. From 2004 to '16, Manning averaged 16.5 interceptions per season. Bortles averaged 17 per season in his first three seasons. Manning led the NFL in interceptions three times -- including throwing 27 in 2013 -- and Bortles led the league with 18 in 2015. The turnovers drove Tom Coughlin nuts when he was with the New York Giants, and they're driving him crazy this year, too.

What’s the deal with Leonard Fournette and the run game? -
In Sunday’s 27-24 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, the Jacksonville Jaguars struggled on offense, most notably in the run game. The Jaguars running backs combined for just 25 yards and much of the fourth quarter we saw fourth overall pick Leonard Fournette standing on the sideline. It was frustrating and confusing to watch the team’s first round pick and arguably best offensive player standing there in a critical moment in the game, leading many fans to question what exactly was going on and if Fournette was still not completely healthy from injuring his ankle against the Los Angeles Rams.
