The Jacksonville Jaguars are looking for a win after losing to the Carolina Panthers. Blake Bortles is completing 55 percent of his passes for 183 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. Bortles has thrown a pick in seven of his last 10 games. Allen Hurns and Rashad Greene have combined for more than 80 receiving yards and one touchdown while Denard Robinson has two receptions. The Jacksonville Jaguars ground game is averaging 96 yards per contest, and T.J. Yeldon leads the way with 51 yards on 12 carries. Defensively, Jacksonville is allowing 20 points and 263 yards per game. Paul Posluszny leads the Jags with nine tackles, Telvin Smith has three tackles for loss and Chris Clemons has a sack. Marqise Lee and Toby Gerhart are questionable with injuries.
The Jaguars are just far too inexperienced and simply don't have the talent on either side of the ball to hang just yet. We saw it last week against a subpar Carolina team that's a hit or miss. Meanwhile, the Dolphins have a lot of talent on both sides of the ball and played great in the second half of their opener after getting the cobwebs out.
The Dolphins by a touchdown really isn't too much to ask here.
