The Jaguars are set to take on the Chargers in week ten of the 2017 season. The Chargers travel to Jacksonville with a 3-5 record, winning three of their last four contests. The Jaguars are 5-3 on the season and have also won three of their last four ball games.
The Jaguars defense has been one of the most dominant in recent memory over the first half of the season. Their rushing attack is tops in the NFL, while their passing game has found life over their past two games.
The Chargers have one of the most experienced gun slingers in football Philip Rivers and he has plenty of weapons to throw to. Their rushing attack has been hit and miss this season, but has mostly missed, thanks in large part to the Chargers injury plagued offensive line. On defense the Chargers are without their best CB Jason Verrett, but boast two of the best pass rushers in football Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram.
This isn't the first time the Jaguars have been unanimously picked by Pro Football Focus to win, but it does come as a bit of a surprise. The Chargers have beaten the Jaguars six times in a row by an average sore of 34-14 and have won three of their last four. Of course, I do believe the Jaguars should win this game, but would be far from surprised to see Philip Rivers and the Chargers give the Jaguars all they can handle, especially coming off a bye week. With a plethora of weapons on offense and a dynamic pass rush the Chargers are no slouch. I'm with PFF here, but wouldn't be shocked to see Gus Bradley and Philip Rivers get the last laugh (for now).
