The Saints are feared due to their rushing proficiency and good scoring ability. Their defense is ranked as middle-tier. They are a strong yet versatile team that deserves its current spot on the season rankings.
Players to watch: Teddy Bridgewater 121 ATT 85 CMP 849 YDS 6 TD; Alvin Kamara 75 CAR 342 YDS 4.6 AVG 1 TD 26 REC 241 YDS 9.3 AVG Latavius Murray 24 CAR 94 YDS 3.9 AVG 1 TD; Michael Thomas 45 REC 543 YDS 12.1 AVG 3 TDS; Ted Ginn 14 REC 170 YDS 12.1 AVG 1 TDS; Jared Cook 12 REC 131 YDS 10.9 AVG 1 TDS
The Jaguars had a moment of weakness as they succumbed 34-27 versus the Carolina Panthers. Leonard Fournette did 23 carries by running 108 yards, eventually scoring a touchdown. DJ Chark Jr. caught the ball 8 times, helping the team gain 164 yards. Gardner Minshew II kept up the team’s hopes with 374 passing yards and 2 touchdowns, despite a 26/44 record.

The Jaguars did their best on the defensive end, holding down their opponent to a 55% completion rate, or 17 out of 31 catch attempts. They still had to concede a total of 445 yards, however.
The Jaguars are missing a solid rush offense. While their passing earns them touchdowns, their missing ground game is likely the cause of their inadequate scoreboard. They should keep up with their good defense, but put in more hours training their offense superstars.
