The Jacksonville Jaguars are entering a critical stretch of the season that can make or break their 2019 NFL playoff hopes and it starts Sunday on the road against the Indianapolis Colts. The AFC South is a bit of a logjam right now, so Sunday’s result is an important one for the Jaguars.
With it’s importance, it’s a good thing the Jaguars have one big advantage over the Colts and only the Colts headed into the game.
No one has really seen Nick Foles in the Jaguars offense.
Sure, Foles started against the Chiefs, but he played only 11 snaps and he barely played in the preseason. The film on Foles with the Jaguars is essentially non-existent so the Colts will have to go back to old Eagles film to get things to work on and attack with Foles, but that surrounding cast and offensive system is entirely different than what the Jaguars currently have.
The Jaguars know what they have with Foles, and while he hasn’t really played at all this season, he has practiced the last few weeks and getting warmed up. It was a bone-break for Foles, so it’s unlikely he will have any injury-rust to work off, especially since it was to his non-throwing shoulder/side. I’m sure he will need to knock some rust off with live action, but other than that the Jaguars should have the advantage against a young Colts secondary.
