Atlanta Falcons: Ten keys for victory vs. Jaguars

1 of 6

The Atlanta Falcons are aiming to win for the first time since Week 7. Here’s what they must do to beat the Jaguars.

It’s been a rough season for the Atlanta Falcons, ever since racing off to a 5-0 start. Since then, Dan Quinn’s team has gone 1-7 and lost six of those in a row. Going undefeated for over a quarter of the season and then to finish with a losing record is unheard of, but now very possible in Atlanta.

To prevent that from happening, the Falcons must start winning. Next week is the return game with the Carolina Panthers, so they are advised to get a victory in this game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. This Jags team is a lot better than it has been in the recent past. Just ask the Indianapolis Colts, who were beaten down 51-16 by the Jaguars last week.

The Falcons defense is going to be tested against an ever-improving Jaguars offense, led by second-year quarterback Blake Bortles. Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns have formed an excellent wide receiver duo, and keeping them quiet will go a long way to winning the game.

What do the Falcons need to do to snap the losing streak? Here’s ten things.
