3 things to watch

The Denver Post - - SPORTS -

1. Turnover bat­tle

The Jaguars have the worst turnover mar­gin in the NFL at mi­nus15. A big por­tion of that is due to their in­abil­ity to get a turnover. They have forced only seven. Jack­sonville hasn’t had an in­ter­cep­tion in its past seven games. The Bron­cos have a plus­four turnover mar­gin and have won a NFL-best 28 con­sec­u­tive games when win­ning the turnover mar­gin.

2. Ma­lik Jack­son

The for­mer Bronco and cur­rent Jaguars de­fen­sive line­man has ex­tra in­cen­tive go­ing into this game to prove to his for­mer team he was worth the big money con­tract he got in free agency. Jack­son had two sacks last Sun­day and will be ea­ger to spoil the Bron­cos play­off pur­suit. He’ll be a big chal­lenge for the Bron­cos’ leaky of­fen­sive line.

3. En­ergy level

It’ll be easy for the Bron­cos to look past the 2-9 Jaguars and ahead to their fi­nal four games, all against play­off con­tenders. If the Bron­cos do that, Jack­sonville can beat them. The Bron­cos first half en­ergy level and fo­cus will be in­te­gral in a matchup they can’t af­ford to lose if they hope to make the play­offs.
