The Jaguars had a nice little opener in a near road win over the Minnesota Vikings Blaine Gabbert looked serviceable, completing 23 of 39 for 260 yards, 2 touchdown, and no interceptions. Minnesota’s secondary is crap, but I was very impressed with Gabbert’s poise under pressure. I didn’t like the matchup for Gabbert because of his struggles under pressure last season. Minnesota has one of the league’s best pass rushes and they lived up to their billing, pressured Gabbert on 18 of 43 drop backs, but Gabbert only took 2 sacks and completed 9 of 15 on those 18 drop backs (3 runs).
However, they may find things much tougher this week as they head home to face the Houston Texans, who might be the most complete team in the NFL. Making life even harder is the fact that they may be without 4 starters with injury. Starting right tackle Cameron Bradfield left the Vikings’ game with an injury and replacement Guy Whimper, who really struggled last season as a starter, predictably got destroyed...

After a disappointing loss to the Minnesota Vikings last Sunday, the Jacksonville Jaguars face a tough task in the Houston Texans this week.
