Playmakers and Benchwarmers - Week 6 Monday Night Madness

Welcome to Monday Night Football, this week live from Jacksonville, FL.  I will apologize ahead of time that this article will not be as long or as in depth as my previous ones have been and I apologize for the late timing.  This week, the battle for early season AFC South supremecy takes place on the banks of the St. Johns River. Both teams are coming in off a couple of solid wins last week and are looking to keep the momentum going (especially the hometown Jaguars).  Now onto what's going to happen on the field.

Studs of the week ::  No shockers here.  Start Chris Johnson and MoJo Drew.  Both defenses are allowing 100+ yards per game and a per carry avg. of over 4 yards.  Both these RBs are the pillars of the team and are looked at to carry the load so the QBs don't have to make plays (and thus create unneeded turnovers). 

CJ - 24 Carries - 112 Yards - 1 TDs
MoJo - 29 Carries - 141 Yards - 2 TDs

Solid Plays this week :: Look for the following athletes to put up solid numbers this week. 

Jaguars - Mike Thomas, Mike Sims-Walker, Marcedes Lewis

Titans - Kenny Britt, Nate Washington

Solid Bye Week Fillin's ::: 

This is the only place these 2 QBs should be.  Neither team wants to rely on their QB.  But if you are in a pinch, either of these guys might get you 210 yards and a TD or 2.  Just don't expect HUGE numbers, even though the Jags defense is weak against the pass, Vince Young won't be able to take advantage.  Garrard has been solid in the 2 most recent wins, taking care of the ball and making plays when he has to.  The key for the Jags is to run the ball and not turn it over.  Look for Garrard to get 233 yards and 1 TD, while Young struggles a bit more for 204 and 1 TD.

Keep your eyes open for a special piece Monday as I report in live from Tailgaters Parking outside of EverBank Field.
