3. WR Justin Blackmon v. CB Antoine Winfield

Justin Blackmon can hit the ground running with a good outing against Minnesota. If he could continue to draw the attention of the defense, Laurent Robinson could benefit greatly from it.

2. DE Andre Branch v. LT Matt Kalil

We all know how disruptive Jeremy Mincey can be, but what about the rookie? If Branch could prove to be effective against the 4th overall draft pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder is going to have a uncomfortable day in the pocket on Sunday.

1. LT Eugene Monroe v. DE Jared Allen 

The most important matchup to watch will be between Eugene Monroe and 2011 sack leader, Jared Allen. The results of this matchup will be the greatest determining factor of the offense's success. If Allen is kicking Monroe's backside up and down the field, the Jaguars offense will be reminiscent of last year, creating a wave of panic in the Jacksonville, Florida. If Monroe manages to keep Allen at bay, the Jacksonville offense should hum on all cylinders and the Jags should win comfortably.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew’s Return is not Surprising

After an frustingly prolonged holdout of 38 days, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew has finally arrived at camp. It isn't too surprising to see, though seeing as he had no leverage. His support base was shrinking rapidly, his backup, Rashad Jennings was playing very well during the preseason, and the owner and GM were adamant about not giving him a new contract. So it's no wonder that the star running back decided to cut his losses and show up to the Jaguars facility.  

So what does this mean? MJD will likely be a third down back in the regular season opener against the Minnesota Vikings and as the season progresses, he will probably regain his starting spot. He might not be as productive as in 2011,but he will probably put up impressive numbers.

Brad Meester, the the long-tenured veteran who has been a consistent force on the offensive line since the days of Tom Coughlin. 

On defense, the team captains are LBs Daryl Smith and Paul Posluszny. Daryl Smith has also been a consistent playmaker for te Jaguars defense since he came into the league in 2004. Paul Posluszny was a free agent signee from the Buffalo Bills in 2011. He made an immediate impact on the Jaguars defense and played at a Pro Bowl level.

On special teams, the team captain is Montell Owens, a two-time Pro Bowler who has been a monster on special teams for the past six years.

The Zach Miller haters can finally rejoice now that he has been finally waived. He was cut with an injury claim on Saturday in order to make room for TE Brett Brackett, who was claimed by the Jaguars on waivers and he will likely be heading to the injured reserve. Due to Zach Miller's health issues, he likely won't have his contract renewed by the Jaguars when he becomes a free agent in March. It's unfortunate because he had a ton of potential, but the best ability is availability.
