Jaguars prepare for joint practices with Vikings In what is sure to be the most eventful week of training camp Womens Keelan Cole Jersey , the Jacksonville Jaguars will travel up north to participate in two days of joint practice sessions with the Minnesota Vikings, at the Vikings practice facilities in Eagan, MN.This will be the biggest test the Jaguars will face all preseason, in my opinion, as much like the Jaguars the Vikings fell a game short of the Super Bowl in 2017. The team added a player many Jags fans coveted, (wrongly so), this past March in quarterback Kirk Cousins Womens T.J. Yeldon Jersey , and returns mostly intact a defense that actually placed above the Jaguars in overall defensive rankings. On offense, in addition to Cousins, the Vikings feature a number of big play skill players in receivers Stefon Diggs and Pro Bowler Adam Thielen, along with the return of former Florida St. stand out Dalvin Cook, following a season ending injury last year. Defensively, the team fields standouts along the front and back ends. The defensive line may match the Jaguars in talent across the board, with defensive ends Danielle Hunter and Everson Griffen and tackles Linvall Joseph and former Jet Sheldon Richardson. Linebacker Anthony Barr is among the best in the league Authentic Cam Robinson Jersey , and the secondary hosts two Pro Bowlers in corner Xavier Rhodes and safety Harrison Smith.Suffice it to say, the task for the Jaguars this week will be a tough one. If this is the team we believe it is, and they showed no signs of it not being so thus far, this will be a really entertaining show being put on this week.The team’s two practice sessions will take place August 15th & 16th, and culminate with preseason game number two this Saturday, at 1 PM EST. The game will be nationally televised on NFL Network. The wheels are fully off the Jaguars bandwagon, and the franchise is now left with not only having to deal with a three-game losing streak for the first time since 2016 Authentic Blake Bortles Jersey , but also a new quarterback controversy as back up Cody Kessler replaced struggling Blake Bortles early in the third quarter of the Jaguars 20-7 loss to the Houston Texans.The defense was not the issue this game, as had been the case in Dallas last week and for a good part of the Kansas City game prior. Quaterback Deshaun Watson was mostly limited in the air, though the front seven couldn’t get the kind of pressure it expected to against one of if not the worst offensive lines in the game. The team not only couldn’t generate the sacks it, also allowed the Texans to gash them in the running game for most of the sixty minutes. That said, the defense allowed 13 points through the first half, and the final touchdown came on a short field thanks to a Bortles fumble.The real concern is the offense, where following a 6/12 for 56 yard effort and two fumble effort Womens Marcell Dareus Jersey , head coach Doug Marrone pulled the plug on Bortles and replaced him with Kessler. The back up was met with raucous applause, but outside of a short field drive resulting in a TJ Yeldon touchdown catch from seven yards out, he fared no better as the lack of weapons on offense for this team was completely unveiled today.This team’s hopes of a return to the playoffs are on life support and the franchise as a whole is in dire straits, as they now fall to 3-4 on the season, are essentially two games back in the division with the loss today, and are now in heading to London with the most important position completely in doubt.
