The Jacksonville Jaguars http://www.newenglandpatriotsteamonline.com/deatrich-wise-jr-jersey , who ranked second in the NFL with 55 sacks in 2017, have four in two games — on pace for 32 this season. Players insist the issue is all about the schedule and not any "Sacksonville" shortcomings.The Jaguars (2-0) have faced veteran quarterbacks Eli Manning and Tom Brady, both savvy enough to get rid of the football quickly and avoid the pressure that defines Jacksonville's defense. The result: A relatively pedestrian nine quarterback hurries in eight quarters.Jacksonville hopes to end the trend against AFC South rival Tennessee on Sunday. It's hardly a given considering the Titans (1-1) have allowed a league-leading one sack. But they also could be without starting offensive tackles Taylor Lewan (concussion) and Jake Conklin (knee). Conklin missed the first two games while recovering from a knee injury sustained in the postseason.Making matters worse for Tennessee, backup Dennis Kelly (illness) was hospitalized last weekend and could miss a second straight game."They do have a good O-line, but we'll see this week," Jaguars defensive tackle Malik Jackson said with a sly grin.Jacksonville is clearly frustrated by its sack totals, but quick to point out that opponents are sliding protections, chipping defensive ends with backs and tight ends, and even sending out as few as two receivers."It's kind of like, 'OK, if you want to max protect, you've got five guys covering two guys,'" linebacker Myles Jack said. "Eventually, Sacksonville will return. I don't think it's at a standstill. I just think they're getting so much respect right now. They'll get their numbers."Jacksonville has become one of the favorites in the AFC following wins against the New York Giants and New England. A victory against the Titans would give them their first 3-0 start since 2004.Tennessee has won four of the last five meetings, including a series sweep last season Authentic Cordarrelle Patterson Jersey , and has more victories (27) against Jacksonville than any team in the franchise's 24-year existence."It's intense, both teams on the rise that started at the bottom of the league and now both teams have been fighting for something (in) recent years," Titans linebacker Brian Orakpo said. "It's exciting. It's exciting for football. The AFC South is becoming very competitive again, and we're both glad to be on the winning side of the things."Here are some other things to know about the Titans and Jaguars:QB QUESTIONSTitans quarterback Marcus Mariota is still experiencing arm weakness along with numbness and tingling in two fingers after injuring his right elbow in the season opener. The symptoms affect the velocity and spin he gets on the football."The way that they explained it to me is like when you strum like a guitar string," Mariota said. "My nerve's kind of been strummed, and it's going to take its time to settle down."GABBERT RETURNSIf Mariota doesn't improve, backup Blaine Gabbert would make his second straight start. Either way, it will be Gabbert's first game back in Jacksonville since the Jaguars traded the 10th overall pick in the 2011 draft to San Francisco in May 2014."I've heard mixed reviews on his time here. I think the fans will kind of give him his warm welcome he deserves," Jack said sarcastically.Gabbert went 5-22 as Jacksonville's starter. But he's 1-0 against his first NFL team , notching a win last year in Arizona."I went out that game last year against Arizona, and Gabbert lit up the field," Jaguars linebacker Telvin Smith said. "I ain't forgot."PAYBACK TOURThe Jaguars are playing the second of three consecutive home games against teams that beat them in 2017 . New England ended Jacksonville's season in the AFC championship game. Tennessee swept both meetings. And next week's opponent, the New York Jets, knocked off the Jags in overtime."We're 1-0 on the Payback Tour," Jack said.Added cornerback A.J. Bouye: "We owe a lot of teams some whuppings."STREAKINGThe only game Tennessee has lost to Jacksonville in the past 34 months came on Christmas Eve 2016 http://www.newenglandpatriotsteamonline.com/tom-brady-jersey , when Mariota was knocked out of the game with a broken right leg. The Titans have won five straight overall in the AFC South, including a 20-17 victory last week against Houston that was buoyed by a touchdown on a fake punt."They don't respect us at all," Jackson said. "We're going to have to go out there and earn our respect." Tom Brady and the New England Patriots are stacking up the victories and that's what matters most to them.As for the aesthetics, they'll keep working on that."We need to make improvements," Brady said. "I think the more we're on the field, the more we can practice, the more we can figure out where everyone fits and what we're doing a good job at in general, those things start to sort themselves out. ... But I'd certainly take building on the wins rather than losing games."Brady threw for three touchdowns and the Patriots hung on to beat the Chicago Bears 38-31 Sunday when Kevin White got stopped at the 1 on a 54-yard pass from Mitchell Trubisky.The Patriots (5-2) won their fourth straight following a 1-2 start. Coming off a 43-40 win over Kansas City, New England came out on top when a swarming defense prevented White from crossing the goal line after he hauled in a heave from Trubisky on the final play.That gave Chicago (3-3) its second loss in a row after winning three straight to grab sole possession of the NFC North lead.Here are some things to know:INJURIES ADDING UPAlready missing five-time Pro Bowl tight end Rob Gronkowski, the Patriots might also have to get by without promising rookie running back Sony Michel.He lost a fumble and had to be helped from the field after he was twisted around while getting tackled by Bilal Nichols on the first play of the second quarter. In the previous three games, Michel rushed for 316 yards and four touchdowns.Gronkowski missed his first game because of ankle and back injuries.WILD TIMESMitchell Trubisky's accuracy came into question, but not his feet.His career-high 81 yards rushing included a spinning, cross-field 8-yard TD run in which he initially scrambled back to about the 30. But he had two interceptions, should have had at least two more and finished 26 for 50 for 333 yards with two touchdowns.The wildness was very apparent early against Patriot blitzes."Early on, it wasn't just Mitch Womens David Andrews Jersey ," Bears coach Matt Nagy said. "Trust me. There were a lot of people that were out of rhythm."GOING DEEPThe Patriots had been lacking a bonafide deep threat in the passing game, but recently acquired Josh Gordon is starting to make an impact. He had a 55-yard reception to set up Brady's 2-yard TD pass to James White to make it 38-24.He now has 13 catches for 224 yards in four games with New England since a trade from Cleveland last month."We are just going to keep developing our confidence in one another, and he's making great plays when I throw him the ball," Brady said. "Just got to keep doing it."LACK MACKStar pass rasher Khalil Mack was largely a nonfactor for the second straight game.The two-time All-Pro made little impact after injuring his right ankle early in last week's overtime loss at Miami. And it wasn't much different going against Brady and the Patriots.Mack had one tackle, and he failed to register a sack for the second week in a row. He spent most of the time on the right side of the line of scrimmage instead of the left, where he usually plays. And he often dropped back in coverage.Chicago's lone sack was by Roquan Smith."I don't know if it affected him yet," coach Matt Nagy said, referring to Mack's ankle. "Obviously we didn't feel it from our team as far as just getting the overall general pressure on (Brady)."CATCH AND RUNJames White continues to give New England solid contributions in the receiving and running games.He caught a team-high eight passes for 57 yards and two touchdowns. He also led New England with 40 yards rushing."You never know how a team is going to decide how to match up against you," White said. "No matter who is covering me, I just try to win my match whether it's a corner, safety, linebacker, D-ends. Just get open, man to man or find the right spot in the end zone and catch the ball and protect it."White leads New England for the year in receptions with 45 and has six TD catches.
