With the Bucs facing the Jags tonight, there are several things to look forward to on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball. Jacksonville has a dynamic offense that will be a much bigger test than the Eagles were last week. Facing Blake Bortles compared to Chase Daniel should test the first string Bucs defense much more than week one. The Eagles also got an early lead thanks to Bucs turnovers so they could be more conservative with play calling.
The skill players of the Jaguars are some of the best in the league with T.J Yeldon having 1,019 yards rushing and receiving. Allen Hurns leads the receiving group of the Jags with a 16.1 average and 10 touchdowns last season, this offense is loaded and will test all NFL defenses this year.
The tight end battle in Tampa is one to watch and see if Austin Sefarian-Jenkins can continue the good play he showed at the joint practice in Jacksonville. He played well and had a great one-handed grab, it will be worth seeing if the third year player can separate himself from Cameron Brate.
The Bucs showed improvement over the joint practice in Jacksonville and it will be interesting to see if it shows at EverBank Field Saturday night.
