Charlotte 49ers (1-0) vs. Maryland Terrapins (1-0)

Charlotte 49ers vs. Maryland Terrapins 9/9/23Both the Charlotte 49ers and Maryland Terrapins are off to a winning start this season with a 1-0 record. The two teams are set to lock horns on September 9, 2023, at 7:30 PM ET at SECU Stadium. Airing on NBC, this early-season clash is an excellent opportunity for both teams to stake their claim as contenders this year. The Terrapins, generally considered the stronger side, will look to justify the odds stacked in their favor. On the other hand, the 49ers have a point to prove and could capitalize on any complacency shown by Maryland.


Durell Robinson has been crucial for Charlotte’s running game. In just 11 attempts, Robinson has managed to rack up 71 rushing yards, which averages to an impressive 6.5 yards per rush. With one touchdown under his belt, Robinson can be the X-factor for the 49ers. Wide Receiver Jack Hestera, although not spectacular, has been a reliable target. He has tallied 46 receiving yards with a solid 15.3 yards per reception. Despite not getting into the end zone yet, his ability to move the chains can’t be ignored.


Roman Hemby, Maryland’s running back, has shown his worth by gaining 58 rushing yards on 12 attempts. While his 4.8 yards per carry don’t quite match up to his counterpart, his presence can’t be underestimated. Jeshaun Jones, the Terrapins’ receiver, had a balanced performance with 57 receiving yards and a score. Averaging 11.4 yards per catch, Jones provides a steady option for his quarterback and has the talent to break open a game. Check out our free expert football picks for more insights.

Jalon Jones QB vs. Taulia Tagovailoa QB

The quarterback showdown for this matchup is intriguing. Charlotte’s Jalon Jones has been fairly efficient, completing 13 of his 19 attempts for a completion percentage of 68.4%. However, his 125 passing yards, 6.6 yards per attempt, and two interceptions raise questions about his ability to control the game. He has been sacked twice, which indicates that he may be susceptible to defensive pressures.


On the other hand, Maryland’s Taulia Tagovailoa has been impressive. His stat line includes 260 passing yards, 22 completions out of 33 attempts, and a 66.7% completion rate. Notably, he has thrown three touchdown passes and zero interceptions, showing his reliability and precision in the passing game. Additionally, Tagovailoa hasn’t been sacked this season, which demonstrates his good pocket presence.


When we put these two quarterbacks side by side, Tagovailoa clearly has the upper hand. His ability to lead drives and make critical throws puts him in a different league compared to Jones.
