>>Find a way to turn up the heat on Chad Henne. Earlier in the season, it seemed almost inconceivable that the Browns would go two games in a row without a sack. The front seven routinely was dominating and generating pressure, while piling up sacks. However, in the last two weeks, against the Bengals and Steelers, the Browns’ pass-rushers have come up empty. And that is largely why the team lost both games. The Jaguars have struggled with their interior blocking, and that should work in the Browns’ favor. The strength of the Browns’ pass rush is the defensive line, beginning with nose tackle
>>Jordan Cameron exploits the Jaguars’ vulnerability in covering tight ends. The Jags have problems covering tight ends, mainly because they have a pair of rookie safeties in Johnathan Cyprien and Josh Evans. Consequently, Cameron should be able to have a productive game. On the strength of his early season success, he ranks third in the NFL among tight ends with 59 receptions for 661 yards. The key is to get him involved in the offense as early as possible. It’s also incumbent upon Cameron, who had two big drops against the Steelers, to hang onto the ball. This game is a chance for him to help re-establish himself as one of the league’s top players at his position.
>>Avoid special-teams breakdowns. The Jaguars have blocked two punts this season. The Browns are still smarting from the fact they allowed one punt to be blocked and had another partially blocked against Cincinnati. The Jaguars also have generated a safety and have had their share of long kickoff returns from Jordan Todman, who ranks second in the AFC with an average of 28.2 yards. In the last two games, they have had the edge in field position thanks to some good punting by Bryan Anger.
