Despite being on the road, the Jacksonville Jaguars have to view this game as an opportunity to get that first win of the season. The St. Louis Rams have struggled and are vulnerable to being defeated.
The Rams on the other hand have to view the Jaguars coming to town as the match up they needed to turn their season around. Beating the Jaguars, even though it is expected, could be a starting point to build some momentum and string together some wins.
Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew enters the game averaging 2.4 yards per carry, with only one touchdown. Through 4 games he has rushed for only 138 yards.
“It’s been pretty tough,” Jones-Drew said, via ESPN. “It’s been the same every year, though. People load the box when they play us. We just have to go back to what we do best and that’s all of us getting back on the same page and running the ball with a mindset of let’s get it going.”
Fortunately for Jones-Drew, the Rams defense struggles against the run allowing an average of 133.5 yards per game.
