The Broncos will take on the Jaguars at TIAA Bank Field on Sunday, Sept. 19 at 11 a.m. MT.
Looking to secure a 2-0 start, the Broncos will face the Jaguars and one of the most promising young quarterbacks in recent memory in Trevor Lawrence. The top overall pick could soon change the fortunes for Jacksonville, especially with a receiving corps that includes DJ Chark Jr., Laviska Shenault Jr. and Marvin Jones Jr. But Denver's defense could give Lawrence and Co. fits as he continues his adjustment to the NFL. With two sacks in the season opener, OLB Von Miller looks like his old self, and the secondary appeared as strong as advertised. The big question for the group this week is how CB Pat Surtain II does in his first start, filling in for an injured Ronald Darby, but the entire unit should ensure that the Jaguars have a rough day.
Offensively, the Broncos will look to continue a strong performance from Week 1. QB Teddy Bridgewater played mistake-free ball vs. the Giants, and even without Jerry Jeudy, he will still be able to rely on creating an effective passing attack with WRs Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick and KJ Hamler should be able to fill in for Jeudy. Jacksonville's defense struggled against Houston a week ago, allowing the Texans to gain 449 net yards, convert 57.1 percent of their third downs and score touchdowns on four of six red-zone chances.
The Broncos already know they'll be without two starters in Jeudy and Darby, who were placed on injured reserve earlier in the week. But they'll also likely be without at least one more, as the team listed right guard Graham Glasgow as doubtful for Sunday's game. Glasgow, who was evaluated for an irregular heartbeat, has not practiced this week. OLB Bradley Chubb's status is up in the air, too, as he and reserve linebacker Jonas Griffith were listed as questionable.
Jacksonville will be without reserve cornerback Tre Herndon, who was ruled out of the game on Friday. Former Broncos pass rusher Lerentee McCray and cornerback Tyson Campbell — who was on the same high-school team as Surtain — are both listed as questionable.
