The Jaguars had won two on the bounce before a 33-16 blowout home loss to Oakland last weekend. They outgained the Raiders by seven yards but QB Blake Bortles had a poor game and was picked off twice. He has thrown for nine touchdowns and nine interceptions this season and they need Bortles to perform in order to win. The Jaguars have struggled to establish a running game all season with just 76.7 yards per game, ranked 30th in the league. The Jags defense ranks 6th in the league for passing yards allowed per game and 9th for overall yards per game.
