Second year man Blaine Gabbert returns under center for Jacksonville after a poor 2012 season. The backups are veterans Chad Henne and Mike Kafka. Rookie Matt Scott at Arizona should get a look late in the fourth quarter.
The Jaguars feature back will be eight year pro Maurice Jones Drew. Competing for the backup jobs are Justin Foresett, Jordan Todman, Jonathan Grimes and rookie De’Leon Eskridge. Gus Bradley makes his head coaching debut on Friday for the Jaguars. He worked as the Seahawks defensive coordinator for four years. Jacksonville finished at 2-14 last year and had the 30th ranked defense last year by allowing 28 points and 380 yards per game. The offense is just as bad. The team averaged 15 points per game in 2011 and 16 points a contest in 2012. The club ran for 85 yards per game and threw for 214 last season.
