3 bold predictions for Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars
Bold prediction number three: The Houston Texans will stifle James Robinson on the ground
When it comes to running the ball, James Robinson is one of the best backs in the league. The Houston Texans are also not good when it comes to stopping the run. Houston has allowed more rushing yards than any other team in the NFL (1,923 yards). So how in the world are they going to stop Robinson from running rampant?
The benching of Robinson done by former Jaguars Head Coach Urban Meyer may have a big part in all of that. Last week against the Titans, Robinson was only given the ball five times due to a fumbled ball against the Rams two weeks ago. With Meyer gone and out of the picture, we should see more of an effort of Robinson getting the ball.
Houston will bring pressure to pack the box, but Robinson’s ability to catch out of the backfield is what will save the Jaguars quite a bit on Sunday. Robinson will have seven catches for 56 yards and one touchdown.
