The Jacksonville Jaguars look to keep picking up steam after winning three of their last four games. Blake Bortles is completing 56.5 percent of his passes for 2,623 yards, 20 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Bortles has five touchdown passes in his last three games. Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns have combined for 1,587 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns while Bryan Walters has 29 receptions. The Jacksonville Jaguars ground game is averaging 95.4 yards per contest, and T.J. Yeldon leads the way with 585 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Jacksonville is allowing 26.8 points and 357.5 yards per game. Telvin Smith leads the Jaguars with 97 tackles, Aaron Colvin has four sacks and Davon House has 17 pass deflections. Bernard Pierce, Michael Bennett and Nic Jacobs are questionable.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are actually starting to look like a fotball team and are gaining confidence each week. Meanwhile, the Chargers look like they've already scheduled vacation plans and can't wait for the season to end. When you add in the fact the Chargers have to travel across country, this is a game that could get very ugly.
I look for Jacksonville to win rather easily. San Diego is a team that's checked out.
