Denver Broncos: 3 Things to look for against Jaguars
The Denver Broncos are set to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in week 2, and there are a few things to look out for in this matchup.
The Denver Broncos have started 1-0 for the first time since the Cardiac Case Keenum era.
Their next matchup is against a Jaguars team featuring Trevor Lawrence and a bunch of other C- players.
The Broncos should have their way with Jacksonville, and I think they will.
In week 1 against the New York Giants, the Broncos played a complete game. They were efficient on offense and very good on defense.
However, there were a few things, here and there that I thought could have been a lot better.
The Broncos definitely don’t need to play a perfect game against the Jaguars to win, but a couple of the things I am looking out for this game are observations from the teams week 1 win.
Denver Broncos: Things to Look out for Against Jaguars
1. Courtland Sutton’s performance
Sutton was a non-factor against the Giants, catching 1 pass for 14 yards. With Jerry Jeudy set to miss over a month, the entire receiver room will need to step up.
Sutton is now the clear number one pass-catcher, or at least, he should be.
The Jaguars have a bad secondary, and the Denver Broncos passing attack should have another good game.
If Sutton cannot put together even an average performance, would I begin to worry just a little bit? Yeah, maybe.
Sutton is a former Pro Bowler, and Teddy Bridgewater appears to be the best quarterback he’s played with in his short career.
Couple that with the bad Jaguars secondary, and you should get a strong performance from 14.
Sunday is a perfect opportunity for Sutton to have a monster game in hopes of eventually putting his knee injury behind him.
I would think the mental aspect of returning from the injury is still weighing on him a bit, and the one thing that can help him break out of the mental trap is a monster performance on the field.
Now, Sutton does not have to have a huge game for the Broncos to win, but it would be a big help.
