What to Watch for:

Jackson Prep offense versus MRA defense:

The Jackson Prep offense will be in for quite a battle versus the strong defense of MRA. In their win versus JA last week the Patriots held the Raider offense to 164 total offensive yards and only six points. They will have to replicate this success if they want to prove their strength in the conference. However, to do this, they will have to first limit Prep’s all-star running back Jerrion Ealy who rushed for over 250 yards just two weeks ago in the team’s matchup versus JA.
