J.C. Jackson believes Patriots 'can match with any receivers in the NFL'




 

One of the New England Patriots' most difficult matchups is here.

Bill Belichick's team will host the red-hot Dallas Cowboys in an exciting Week 6 contest. New England, who was missing four offensive linemen last week, is regaining health and putting pieces back together in the trenches. Jalen Mills and Shaun Wade were unavailable against the Houston Texans and they'll likely return to the field against Dallas.

After getting torched by Davis Mills, the secondary will have to prepare for Dak Prescott and a dangerous offensive crew that includes Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, Ezekiel Elliot, Dalton Schultz and more. J.C. Jackson doesn't appear to be worried because he believes in the group around him.

"Of course. I believe in my secondary," Jackson said Thursday, transcribed by WEEI. "We've always been good defensively, so I feel like we can match with any receivers in the NFL. We've got a pretty good defense - a couple of veteran players who have been here for awhile…"

The Patriots have allowed the fourth-least passing yards this season and the sixth-least passing touchdowns. They've been better than what the 2-3 record they carry may display. Jackson now is going to turn his attention to Lamb, who he has confidence in the Patriots covering.

"I mean, he's got to deal with me, too," he said when asked about the keys to covering Lamb. "He's pretty good, but he's got to deal with my strengths, too. That's how I look at it."

Jackson carries the perfect demeanor for the team's No. 1 cornerback.
