The Los Angeles Chargers have won the last six meetings with the Jacksonville Jaguars. But this year’s Jags aren’t your usual Jags.
Head coach Doug Marrone has a team that is playing stifling defense while getting just enough out of its offense to win five out of eight games this year. The Chargers, on the other hand, have lost five out of eight games.
Still, the Chargers’ recent dominance over this team might make you lean toward picking the Chargers, even if they are on the road. In those six wins over Jacksonville, the Chargers have won five of them by 18 points or more. That’s dominance.
Even though the Chargers won three games in a row not long ago, it’s hard not to say the Jaguars have been the more impressive team this season. They own a big victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers and a 37-point thrashing of the Baltimore Ravens this season.
The Chargers are coming off a bye week and they are 2-2 on the road this season while the Jags are just 2-2 at Everbank Field.
So, how are the Bolts going to come out on top in this game? They’ll have to get the best of the three matchups detailed here.
