Week 9: at Cincinnati Bengals
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Hello Mr. Robinson! The Jaguars have found a featured back in Denard Robinson. He's put up back-to-back 100+-yards rushing efforts, with 22/127/1 vs. Cleveland two games ago and 18/108/0 rushing with 1/10/0 receiving vs. Miami last week. Toby Gerhart (4/10/0 rushing and 1/3/0 receiving) doesn't appear to be a threat to reclaim any significant portion of the touches in this stable even though he is finally healthy again.
The Cincinnati rush D staunched some of the bleeding against the Ravens (26/107/2) but still allowed two rushing TDs - this after getting dominated by the Colts' backs two games ago (34/171/1 rushing allowed to Trent Richardson, Ahmad Bradshaw, and company). There is still a long way to go for the Bengals who are struggling through multiple injuries/walking wounded among their linebackers' corps.
This looks like a good matchup for the hot Robinson.
