Jacksonville has now started three quarterbacks this season. Gardner Minshew II, Jake Luton, and Mike Glennon have all had their turns under center, but the Jaguars remain one of the worst teams in the NFL. They have lost 10 straight games after their Week 1 victory against the Indianapolis Colts, and that led to general manager David Caldwell being fired after Sunday’s loss. Their fortunes probably won’t change on the road against the Minnesota Vikings this Sunday, but the Jaguars wouldn’t want them to either since this is a lost season and Jacksonville is simply looking for a high draft pick.

Will Doug Marrone be the next coach fired? It seems to be a formality that Marrone is in his last season as Jacksonville’s head coach. Placing the blame on Marrone is somewhat unfair given his best quarterback has been Minshew. Blake Bortles and Nick Foles were huge busts, and Marrone has gotten what he can out of Minshew. That’s life in the NFL though.
Marrone has yet to announce the starter for this week’s game. Minshew has been out with a thumb injury, so Glennon might get the nod once again. Glennon was a steady hand, and that might be all Jacksonville wants since the Jaguars have found a gem in undrafted rookie James Robinson. Robinson is the third leading rusher in the NFL with 890 yards (4.6 YPC) and four touchdowns.

D.J. Chark and Chris Conley missed last week’s game against Cleveland, and there hasn’t been an update as to their status this week. Their absence would mean that Keelan Cole and Laviska Shenault are the primary receiver for whoever is throwing the ball. Jacksonville doesn’t have a great, standout receiver, but this team does have some decent options that can get open.

Minnesota has not been that good at defending the pass this season. The Vikings rank 25th in pass defense, surrendering 7.3 YPA and 261.3 YPG through the air. Many of their back-ups are on injured reserve, hampering their depth, and Mike Hughes is currently on injured reserve.

The hosts are led by Dalvin Cook. Cook is the top running back in the NFC this season. He has run for 1,130 yards (5.2 YPC) and 13 touchdowns in just 10 games. Alexander Mattison has done a nice job as a back-up, spelling Cook when needed, and that has helped Kirk Cousins perform well at quarterback.

Cousins did not have a great start to the season with 10 interceptions in Minnesota’s first six games, but he has found his rhythm since that nadir. He has thrown 12 touchdowns and just one interception in the Vikings’ last five games, leading to a 4-1 record for Minnesota in that stretch. Rookie Justin Jefferson has been superb too, and he should be receiving Offensive Rookie of the Year attention. Jefferson has 52 receptions for 918 yards and six touchdowns, allowing Adam Thielen to shine underneath.

Coming into this game, the Jaguars defense ranks 30th in scoring defense (29.5 PPG) and 31st in total defense (415.6 YPG). The secondary has been a big problem, allowing 8.2 YPA, so Jefferson could have the best day of his young career.

Jacksonville Jaguars Week 12 Recap

The Jaguars may have lost ten straight games, but they have been somewhat competitive despite their dismal record. Five of their ten losses have been by a single score, and they have kept it within four points in three of their four games since the bye week. Jacksonville’s 27-25 loss to Cleveland this past week was the third cover in the last four games for the Jaguars.

Mike Glennon was tabbed to start for the first time this season. Although he wasn’t great in the loss, he didn’t lose the game for the Jaguars. Glennon completed 20 of 35 passes for 235 yards and two touchdowns against the Browns. The unheralded Collin Johnson was his top target with four catches for 96 yards and a score.

Robinson continued to run well, carrying the ball 22 times for 128 yards and a touchdown. However, he was outdueled by Cleveland’s powerful duo of Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt. Chubb and Hunt teamed up for 206 yards and a touchdown, averaging 7.1 YPC.
