Last week in Kansas City, he looked like the 2015 version. They did force a safety against the Jets. The most recent was a 26-24 come-from-behind victory over the Detroit Lions in Week 4. The over/under total is now listed at 40 points.

The Jaguars got dominated in a game that was thoroughly hyped in the week leading up against the Chiefs. Blake Bortles remains as inconsistent as ever and injuries have crippled them further on that side of the ball. Bortles was very bad throwing 4 picks, and missing multiple receivers horribly. WR Donte Moncrief has 185 yards receiving, TD in past two games. Yeldon has filled in nicely in Fournette's absence, running for 258 yards and a score on 59 carries. RB Ezekiel Elliott averaging 154 yards from scrimmage per game in past three, with TD catch. The Jacksonville offensive line has some really weak links. The offense and defense both have to be good. "You have to somehow, some way try to affect him with your pass rush".

That fact might play into the Jaguars' decision-making with star cornerback Jalen Ramsey.

Jacksonville's defense is actually first in the league in terms of yards per game while they rank tied for third in points.

The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders perform before the Dallas Cowboys take on the Oakland Raiders in a Preseason game at AT&T Stadium on August 26, 2017 in Arlington, Texas. Dak Prescott is turning into a conservative QB, afraid to take risks down the field, going 18/29 for 208 yards, 1 TD, and 2 INTs on Sunday night.

Zeke Elliot continues to be the focal point of the Cowboys offense, and is putting together an excellent season.

Knicks waive Noah to make French center's departure official
He had an impressive spell with the Bulls, which included him being named NBA's Defensive Player of the Year in 2014. The Knicks had hoped to trade him but no deal materialized, so they put the centre on waivers Saturday.

Bortles has a chance to be just the fifth National Football League quarterback with at least 375 yards passing in three straight games after establishing a career high in consecutive weeks. The defensive front recorded 9 QB hits against Houston, and 27 total pressures.

Defensively, defensive end Randy Gregory and defensive tackle Maliek Collins racked up a sack each against a porous Jaguars' offensive line.

This game could be a slog. With Romo in the booth to call the game with Jim Nantz for CBS, Prescott and the Cowboys posted what may have been the most stunning half of football this season, taking a 24-0 first-half lead on the Jaguars en route to a dominant 40-7 win.

All of this is to say that the Jags don't necessarily need Ramsey to slow down Dallas' offense. Jacksonville's defense is just too good, and it's the biggest reason they'll win, 20-6.

Dallas offense will face a similar challenge against Jacksonvilles D. Dak is not going to be able to throw the ball down the field against an aggressive pass rush and secondary.
