Calais Campbell felt the fans helped spur the Jacksonville Jaguars to a third successive win at Wembley.

There were just 11 minutes remaining when the Baltimore Ravens finally got over midfield, such was their dismal output in a 44-7 shellacking by the Jacksonville Jaguars at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

For the Jaguars, it was a marked turnaround from the crushing 37-16 loss to the Tennessee Titans a week ago, as they dominated the previously unbeaten Ravens to leave them with a 2-1 record for the season.

For Jaguars’ defensive stud Calais Campbell, the bounce-back was a matter of pride after head coach Doug Marrone threw down the gauntlet.

Campbell, who inked a four-year $60 million contract after arriving from the Arizona Cardinals in the spring, said: “We have a lot of talent and we want to figure out how good we can be.

“The coach challenged us to see how good we can be. Today was a good step in the right direction to show what we can do when we do it right. There is a lot of football to be played and this is just one big game, but this just shows what we can do. If we sell out and take care of the small things, we understand how good we can be. We sold out and had a better day at the office than last week.

“The thing about football is all that matters right now. Every team is evenly matched and it is just about who plays the football on the day. This defensive line takes a lot of pride in what we do.”

At 31, Campbell is adding veteran leadership to a young Jaguars team, but this was his first trip to Wembley and he admitted: “The jet-lag was tough. I listened to the coaching staff and the players that have done it before. A lot of players on the sidelines have experienced it and they gave me a lot of advice.

“But the team likes coming here. I do believe there are a lot of fans here that show a lot of love to the Jaguars and I think playing here for the last few years has really made a difference.

“There are a lot of our jerseys in the stands and a lot of energy, and we were able to feed off that. In the tunnel before the game, you could hear all the music and everybody was excited – it was really motivating.”

It was an unhappy first trip to London for the Ravens, however. Baltimore, who went into the game with a 2-0 record and were the bookmakers’ 3.5-point favourites, managed just 15 yards on 21 plays in the first half and were 23-0 down at the interval, with quarterback Joe Flacco completing just four of his 12 passes for a grand total of eight yards. Flacco was replaced by Ryan Mallett at the start of the fourth quarter.

Ravens wide receiver Jeremy Maclin was blunt afterwards. He said: “It was bad, man. It is embarrassing, but at the same time we understand it is a very long season. We have got 16 games and one win doesn’t define us and one loss doesn’t define us. It is all about how you finish at the end of the year and if you are one of six teams in your conference playing for the Super Bowl, that is the ultimate goal here.

“All credit to them. They were ready and came out flying around. They executed better than us in every phase of the game and that’s what happens in the National Football League if you don’t come ready to play. They had a god gameplan – they played some man-coverage with some help over the middle of the field with an alert guy there. Anytime you went across the middle, there were two guys waiting for us. It is our job to adjust but we didn’t do that today.”

To rub salt into the gaping wounds when 37-0 up, the Jaguars produced a successful fake punt.

Maclin was not concerned by the gamesmanship. He added: “I like it. They are playing to win. You can’t be mad at that – it’s football. This isn’t Pop Warner football.”

At first glance, many rank the secondary of the Arizona Cardinals as one of the best in the league, and comparable to that of the Denver Broncos, whose defensive backs were arguably the key to stopping the Cowboys running game to an extent that we hadn’t seen around these parts in a very long while. Cornerback Patrick Peterson and safety/cornerback Tyrann Mathieu are certainly two of the best in the league at their positions, and they will make things very difficult for Dak Prescott and the Cowboys receivers on Monday night, but what the Cardinals don’t have that the Broncos do is depth in their secondary.

On top of arguably the two best cornerbacks in the league in Aqib Talib and Chris Harris Jr., the latter of whom can apparently double as a safety in spot duty, the Broncos also have an elite third corner in Bradley Roby and an excellent safety in Darian Stewart. The Cardinals do not have that luxury.

Last season the Cardinals had a top-five pass defense, but gone from that unit are both safeties in Tony Jefferson, now with the Ravens, and D.J. Swearinger, now with the Redskins, as well as cornerback Marcus Cooper. Both Cooper and Swearinger played over 75% of the snaps last season while Jefferson played 86%, and the three accounted for seven interceptions, 24 pass deflections, and four sacks. The only defensive back to play more snaps last year for the Cardinals than those three was Peterson, although the fact that Mathieu missed a handful of games certainly plays into that.

Even so, the fact remains that Arizona is now without three of their top five defensive backs from last year, which is a significant blow for what is supposedly one of the best units in the league. They have been replaced by cornerback Justin Bethel, who now starts after only playing about 25% of the snaps last season, and two veteran safeties who have seen better days in Tyvon Branch and Antoine Bethea.

Long story short, despite the two big names at the top of the depth chart, there are gaps in this secondary that the Cowboys can exploit that did not exist in the Broncos secondary. For that very reason the Cowboys must hone in on where the ultra-versatile Mathieu lines up. Everybody knows where Peterson will be, shadowing Dez Bryant, most often on the boundary. It won’t take too much to identify where he is and attempt to take advantage of it when possible.

But Mathieu is a different case altogether, he’s listed as a safety but given the multiple defense Arizona employs he can line up at outside corner, in the slot, attack on blitzes, or play a more traditional role as a deep centerfield safety. In his breakout 2015 season he had an astounding 11 TFL to go along with five interceptions and 17 pass deflections, impacting the game both at the line of scrimmage with his ability to blitz and tackle, and on the back end with his range, speed, and ball skills.

You never know exactly how he will be used but I suspect that the Cardinals will look to have him primarily hone in on intermediate targets Cole Beasley and Jason Witten, but given the relative mediocrity of the rest of the secondary, it’s possible that they use him interchangeably as the game goes on to address whatever problem areas come up, whether that is Beasley or Witten, Ezekiel Elliott out of the backfield, or something else.

Dak Prescott and the Cowboys cannot let Arizona use Mathieu’s versatility to cover up for average at best players in Bethel, Branch, Bethea, etc. They must be able to quickly identify how he’s being utilized and then use that to attack other areas of the defense. No matter how good Peterson and Mathieu are they’re only two players, unlike the Broncos four, and they can’t be everywhere on the back end. Peterson will be doing his thing on Bryant, that’s a toss-up that could go either way on any given play, but being able to quickly locate Mathieu will allow Prescott to adjust and find matchups to exploit on the fly.

Conversely, if the Cowboys are unable to locate him it could lead to a huge play in the opposite direction. The Cardinals have a very good pass rush behind outside linebackers Chandler Jones and Markus Golden, and of course they’ll be playing at home with the crowd behind them in a primetime game. If that pass rush can get cranked up on third and long and Prescott isn’t careful, or is unable to figure what exactly Mathieu is doing, the young quarterback could easily be fooled into a big mistake that leads to a critical turnover. Given the Cardinals below average offense it will likely take at least a turnover or two from the defense for them to win the game, and there is nobody more likely to give that to them than Mathieu.

Indianapolis Colts’ Andrew Luck and Arizona Cardinals’ Carson Palmer (3) talk following overtime of an NFL football game Sunday, Sept. 17, 2017, in Indianapolis. Arizona won 16-13.

Bryan Broaddus, Dallas Cowboys.com writer and former NFL personnel man, joined The Shan & RJ Show on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM] to talk all things Dallas Cowboys ahead of the team’s matchup against the Arizona Cardinals. Here are some of the highlights:

On Cardinals QB Carson Palmer…

Broaddus: What he’s doing is: everything for Arizona’s offense tends to go down the field. And that’s good to a point, but their plays when they win are on the outside of the numbers.

So, if you defend the deep outside, that tends to be where Carson Palmer likes to throw the ball, and he’s had a little bit of some arm trouble. Pressure tends to bother him in the pocket where it makes him throw the ball short. Because their routes are so long down the field, if you can get guys home on your rush – at least get some pressure – you can affect the way he throws the football.

The short, the intermediate stuff usually comes in the form of Larry Fitzgerald underneath, but just get ready for this ball to be going down the field. The Cowboys have go to make some plays down the field and outside of the numbers to really slow down this Arizona offense.

On Dez Bryant’s matchup with Patrick Peterson…

Broaddus: Peterson is going to travel with him everywhere he goes. So, just be ready for that.

It’s going to come down to the physicality of this game – will they allow Dez to push? Will they allow Peterson to hold? Those are the things you’ll have to deal with. I don’t feel like this is one of those games where you say, ‘OK, you can’t throw the ball to Dez Bryant.’ Even if you move him around, you’re going to have Patrick Peterson walking with him wherever he goes.

So, I feel like if you look at Arizona defensively, they’re one of those teams that they do have the great corner that can take you out, but in the other areas, they tend to play with guys that are those hybrid players – those strong safety-type of bodies. Tyrann Mathieu, [Justin] Bethel on the other side. He’s more of a true corner. But there’s a little bit bigger guy in that secondary for Arizona.

I don’t know if the coverage is going to be all that great for them like we saw in Denver and like we saw in New York, but they surely have one player that can take you out of this game.
