Under the Radar: Jaguars vs Browns
Brad Meester returns to the Jacksonville lineup and the Jaguars need to get a good push in the middle and open up holes for the running game against a Cleveland team who ranks 26th in the NFL in rushing defense.
Look for Dennis Northcutt to play well. This is a big game for him as he faces his former team for the first time.
Jaguars fullback Greg Jones could have another good game. Jones is a punishing blocker and is very agile for a man of his mass.
Andra Davis is one of the best linebackers in the league that most people have never heard of. Davis is very active and could be the key to stopping the Jaguars running game.
Eric Wright is turning into a fine corner. Wright has first-round type of talent and seems to be coming into his own in recent weeks.
Corey Williams has to play well for Cleveland to have a good chance at winning. Williams has struggled with the transition from Green Bay's 4-3 defense to Cleveland's 3-4, and he must play well on Sunday.
When the Browns are on offense:
Tight end Steve Heiden is a pretty good player, and with Kellen Winslow out for Sunday's game, Heiden could step up and play well against a Jacksonville defense who has struggled covering any tight ends this season.
Running back Jerome Harrison is averaging 7.5 yards per carry. Harrison has tons of speed and if he can get to edge, Jacksonville will have a hard time stopping him.
Wide receiver Syndric Steptoe has big play speed and ability and if he's lined up against Drayton Florence, he could make a big play for the Browns.
It has to be put up or shut up time for Mike Peterson. He's played horribly all season long and teams are exposing him. If he gets another shot to start this week he must play better or else Jack Del Rio has to put him on the bench.
Brian Williams is due for a big game, whether it's at cornerback where the entire defense is better, or safety. Williams may snag an interception on Sunday.
