Jags offense vs. Dolphins defense
The Jags will want to run the ball alot with their very potent combo of Taylor and Jones. While the Dolphins stop the run well they haven't faced an attack so potent. They should slow the combo but not completely stop them. If the Jags keep it close they can stick with the run and will have more success. Garrard is mobile so the Dolphins will have to keep him in check by containing him in the pocket. he isn't the best passer but has the WRs. the height difference in the match-ups is overwhelmingly in the Jags favor. So the safeties will have to help out in coverage often. the TE Lewis is the X factor, he has enormous size and could go off big time if not accounted for.
Jags defense vs. Dolphins offense
The Jags have a top rush defense and the Dolphins have no Ronnie Brown. sounds like alot of passing to me. Miami just wants to stay away from Mathis, the guy can cover very well and will make Chambers a minimum factor. The absence of Donovan Darris will be big for the Dolphins. without him the middle of the field will be more open for McMichael. He should be a big factor who the Jags will try and take away. Booker is playing well as of late and the ailing DBs of Jacksonville will have trouble with him, Joey should get him the ball often.
Dolphins 17, Jaguars 10
