Wake-up call: Thursday, Sept. 4

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Here's a preview of what to watch for Thursday regarding the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy is a nightmare for defenses to handle, and it's made worse by the up-tempo offense the Eagles use. Stopping McCoy is the defense's No. 1 priority. Defensive coordinator Bob Babich and several defenders talk about playing against the NFL's leading rusher in 2013.

ESPN.com NFL Nation Eagles reporter Phil Sheridan and I preview Sunday's matchup in the weekly feature. Expect that around noon EST.

The Question of the Week debuts today. Every Thursday I'll post a blog in which five players answer a question that has nothing to do with football. Hopefully it's a way for you to get to know the players. Some weeks it'll be a fun question. Others it'll be a quirky or off-beat question. There also will be serious questions mixed in as well. This week's question: What is the one food you won't eat? That should post about 10 a.m. EST.

The Stat of the Week also makes it's 2014 debut. Every Thursday, I'll present an interesting (to me, anyway) stat, break it down and try to provide context heading into the upcoming game. This week's stat has to do with roster turnover over the past two seasons. It should post about 3 p.m. EST.
