|When:||Thursday, October 19, 2023|
|Time:||8:15 PM ET|
Doug Pederson vs Dennis Allen
Travis Etienne Jr. was first to ignite the Jaguars offense when he found the end zone from two and 22 yards out, giving the Jaguars an initial lead of 14-3. Trevor Lawrence then connected with Christian Kirk on a 29-yard touchdown pass from Trevor Lawrence that put Jacksonville up 21-3. Even though Indianapolis outgained them 354-233 overall, their defense still managed to force four turnovers throughout the game and won them victory!
On the flipside, the New Orleans Saints have struggled to find their footing despite possessing one of the league’s fifth-ranked defenses. At 3-3/3-5 they have lost three of their last four games with Houston Texans being their latest victim with an eventual 20-13 road defeat as Derek Carr threw an interception intended for Michael Thomas that sealed New Orleans’ fate despite amassing 430 total yards during second-half play and only scoring three points during this crucial contest.
Trevor Lawrence to Carry the Burden
Jacksonville will have their hands full with quarterback Trevor Lawrence as they deal with his knee injury, scheduled for an MRI this Monday, and hope he can suit up for this crucial game. Meanwhile, New Orleans invested heavily in their quarterback by signing Derek Carr to a lucrative contract this off-season; their goal of capturing the NFC South Division title will make New Orleans highly motivated to secure victory at home this week.
Thursday Night promises an exhilarating display of NFL football between Jacksonville’s undefeated streak and New Orleans’ efforts to regain their footing in the NFC South Division race. While Jacksonville aims to continue their success streak, New Orleans hopes to defend their turf and restart their season.
Jaguars Take to a Good Start
The Jaguars started their season off right by beating the Colts on the road in Week 1, only to fall victim to two consecutive losses to Chiefs and Texans thereafter. But since then they’ve shown remarkable resilience as they secured three straight victories versus Falcons, Bills, and Colts; including 21 points scored during second quarter alone against Colts (Trevor Lawrence had 181 yards passing with two touchdowns and an interception while Travis Etienne recorded 18 rushes for 55 yards with two scores). Christian Kirk was named team receiver contributing three catches for 49 yards plus another score from him – all within half-of-way-from-hell!
