Maybe we should've downgraded expectations for Jackson last week when he was held out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday with a knee injury, though to be honest, I'm expecting more teams to give their stars days off practice in a year like this. But it was clearly something that bothered him, as he rushed for just three yards in last week's game. That was just the second time since the start of last year where he's rushed for less than 40 yards (which is the equivalent of a passing touchdown). We talked about his passing touchdown rate going down this year, but his current 6.7 percent touchdown-rate is still likely to drop even more, so we need those rushing totals. The Eagles haven't allowed a quarterback to rush for more than 17 yards this year, but they also haven't played a particularly mobile quarterback. Going back to last year, they didn't allow a quarterback to rush for more than 45 yards, so they're clearly not a team that Jackson will just drop 80 rushing yards on without a problem. They've also held 4-of-5 teams they've played this year to less than 7.50 yards per attempt. That's likely due to the pressure they're bringing on defense, as their 40.7 percent pressure rate ranks second in the NFL behind only the Steelers. However, Jackson played extremely well under pressure this year, boasting a 122.0 QB Rating while pressured, the highest mark in the NFL. Keep in mind that passer rating doesn't even factor in the rushing yards he's tallied while being pressured. You need to keep trotting Jackson out there as an QB1, especially when we know the running backs are going to struggle to create much this week.
