The San Diego Chargers defense needs another good performance on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars have weapons on their offense. Maurice Jones-Drew has been a stud in this league for many years and can get the job done. WR Justin Blackmon has shown that he can make big things happen as a receiver and Chad Henne has done a good job of running the team’s offense.

The Chargers defense is coming off of their best performance and they need to continue that effort in Jacksonville. The team needs to keep the pressure coming on defense. The team will likely will be without Donald Butler again, but Jarret Johnson will be back on the field. The team needs to keep sending them after the quarterback and force him to make some bad decisions with the football.

Corey Liuget and  Kendall Reyes had their best games last weekend. We will need that type of performance from them again. The team was able to confuse Andrew Luck and forced him to throw the football out quick and the defense looked much stronger with that approach.

Stay aggressive on defense and bring another strong performance going into the BYE week. Get that win and then the boys can rest.
