The Jaguars announced five team captains on Monday and their starting quarterback was not one of them.
Youth Tyler Johnson Jersey Blake Bortles, who had been a team captain each of the last two seasons, lost his captaincy with the team. The Jaguars captains this season will be tight end Marcedes Lewis, center Brandon Linder, linebackers Paul Posluszny and Telvin Smith, and wide receiver Arrelious Benn.
It just doesn’t stop at the Super Bowl odds.
The Jets are projected to be a 10-point underdog to the Browns, who won just one game last season, in their Week 5 matchup. The Browns haven’t been a double-digit favorite since 2007. When the Jets face the Patriots, who have the best Super Bowl odds at 11-4, in the regular-season finale, the Patriots are currently projected to be a 28-point favorite. That would be the largest spread in the NFL since the Falcons were four-touchdown underdogs to the Baltimore Colts in 1968.
The Jets opened at 100-1, but the number has plummeted over the last couple of months.
This is what happens when you don’t have a quality starting quarterback, release the second-leading tackler in franchise history (linebacker David Harris), cut loose productive receiver Eric Decker, see Quincy Enunwa 鈥?the team’s leading receiver last season 鈥?go down with a season-ending injury 鈥?and then you trade your best defensive player in Sheldon Richardson.
Even with Ezekiel Elliott in there to help Dak Prescott, this is a daunting defense for the Cowboys, as the Giants swept the season series as NFC East runners-up in 2016. This time, Eli Manning has Brandon Marshall and Evan Engram added to his receiving mix to exploit the Cowboys’ downgrades in the secondary. Dak will have a solid sophomore start, but streaky Eli starts hotter with the right matchup. Giants win 24-20 in the Upset of the Week.
