Let’s see what happens this week at home.Not everything was fixed last week with the Jaguars' 29-27 win over Tennessee on the road. The Jaguars still have plenty of holes to fill on offense while it tries to take a defensive showing and make it better than it was.That means a viable pass rush that can make Carson Palmer move around in the pocket more and force the team to use the run more than it might like.The only problem with that is Andre Ellington seems to be the back the Cardinals have been looking for all year long and could make the defense – which is full of holes already – look like Swiss cheese.Hopefully Will Blackmon, Dwayne Gratz and Jonathan Cyprien will have something to say about that when the game is over.Ellington and Palmer are not the only things this team must be concerned with. There is this guy named Larry Fitzgerald who continues to amaze all of us with his ability and his skill. If Jerry Rice was a Picasso in a passing route, Fitzgerald could very well be a Monet in the seam.I suspect playing at home, having a win under their belts and being in front of a crowd that supports them will make a huge difference on Sunday afternoon. Here are three BOLD Predictions.Larry Fitzgerald – One CatchThe growth of the Jaguars' secondary si finally happening. That is because of the work of Will Blackmon, Dwayne Gratz and Jonathan Cyprien. While the latter two are rookies, Blackmon has been the best free agent signee of this club this season.His work ethic has been contagious. Alan Ball played better against the Titans and you can see the secondary playing a little better in coverage. The best way to continue that improvement is to play one of the league’s best receivers like a blanket.I predict Larry Fitzgerald will be held to a single catch on Sunday.Jordan Todman – Leading RusherWhile the Jaguars look to get Maurice Jones-Drew more exposure in the offense, it might very well phase him out as well.If Jordan Todman continues to show he can return kicks, come in on third down and move the pile on running plays and can catch a ball or two out of the backfield, it may mean MJD is used a little less and Todman earns more touches.This is not to say that the team will now shy away from No. 32. What it means is this is a team that will use the players who give them the greatest opportunity to win football games. MJD is great to move the chains and score touchdowns – but he needs a running mate to work with him.Second win in a row for the JaguarsNow, it’s called a streak! Two in a row and the Jaguars fans do not know what to do with themselves.Obviously, the offense must play better, there must be a replacement for Justin Blackmon and tight end Marcedes Lewis must get more touches. But the Jaguars’ schedule looks easier in the second half of the season, which make everything a little easier to deal with in Jacksonville.Jaguars win 30-24.
