Getty Ezekiel Elliott might be the best back in the NFL according to Jaguars coach Doug Marrone

Jacksonville has lost five fumbles and Blake Bortles has thrown seven interceptions. "You can't turn the ball over". Fournette is nursing a hamstring injury and will miss his third game of this season.

Due to the lack of depth at running back, Jacksonville signed veteran running back Jamaal Charles. The Jags enter the matchup with a 3-2 record, coming off a loss to undefeated Kansas City.

Since Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott entered the National Football League, the Cowboys are 18/19 on fourth and one when going for it. But their 172 passing yards per game rank 30th in the NFL, dragging their total yards per game to 307.8, 28th in the league. Zeke is a threat out of the backfield, leading Dallas with 22 receptions. Dallas drafted the rookie in the seventh round last April.

Neither team could score on their first possession of overtime, but Houston would finally end the contest with 1:50 left in the extra frame when their kicker connected on a 36-yard field goal attempt to give the Texans a 16-13 victory.

Jacksonville's first and foremost priority is to stop Elliott. Any game featuring a team that has Scott Linehan calling plays on one side and Blake Bortles on the other side has the potential to be ugly. Eighteen teams have more, including the Cowboys with 15.

The Dallas Cowboys and Jacksonville Jaguars have a lot in common offensively. Prescott has been mediocre as is gets this season completing 61.8 percent of his passes, five touchdowns, and four interceptions.

If Dallas wants a chance to win this game, it needs to run Ezekiel Elliott even more than it has been. Daniel Ross impressed in limited action, recording 5 pressures on just 11 pass rushing snaps. Where the Cowboys' defense shined the most was when the Texans came so close to scoring but Dallas held their ground, in big part thanks to Smith. At times Bortles can carry the team, but not from whistle to whistle. T.J. Yeldon will serve as Jacksonville's lead back for however long Fournette is out, with Corey Grant in a change-of-pace role.

As for the Jaguars, it's been their defense that has kept them in game this season. If Jacksonville can not establish the run game, Dallas will hang around longer than Jacksonville wants. He has just 71 yards on 20 carries.

The Jags have hit the under in four of their last five road games and in five of their last six games on fieldturf. Stick to their west-coast scheme with crossing routes, and screens to slow down the pass rush. But it wasn't consistent, which was one of the main keys to win this football game.

Yes. This is a must-win game for both teams this early into the season.

"We're 3-2 but minus-7, which is really tough to do, be 3-2 and be minus-7 in the turnover ratio", he said. Starting 3-3, Jacksonville losses credibility as a playoff contender.

It sounds insane to expect it, but the Jaguars defense developed a reputation of, not only creating takeaways, but of scoring. Jaguars won in only previous appearance at AT&T Stadium, 35-17 in 2010.
