The Jacksonville Jaguars and Oakland Raiders meet Sunday in week 15 NFL action at RingCentral Coliseum.
The Jacksonville Jaguars need a win here to snap a five-game losing streak. The Jacksonville Jaguars have lost four of their last six road games. Nick Foles is completing 65.8 percent of his passes for 736 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. Gardner Minshew and Foles have combined for 18 touchdown passes and seven interceptions. DJ Chark and Chris Conley have combined for 1,588 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns while Dede Westbrook has 55 receptions. The Jacksonville Jaguars ground game is averaging 111.5 yards per contest, and Leonard Fournette leads the way with 1,039 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Jacksonville is allowing 25.9 points and 373.1 yards per game. Myles Jack leads the Jacksonville Jaguars with 66 tackles, Josh Allen has nine sacks and Tre Henderson has two interceptions.
The Oakland Raiders need a win here to snap a three-game losing streak. The Oakland Raiders have won three of their last four home games. Derek Carr is completing 70.8 percent of his passes for 3,105 yards, 18 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Carr has one or less touchdown passes in 11 of his last 19 games. Darren Waller and Tyrell Williams have combined for 1,423 receiving yards and eight touchdowns while Hunter Renfrow has 36 receptions. The Oakland Raiders ground game is averaging 120.7 yards per contest, and Josh Jacobs leads the way with 1,061 yards and seven touchdowns. Defensively, Oakland is allowing 28.2 points and 376.4 yards per game. Tahir Whitehead leads the Oakland Raiders with 92 tackles, Maxx Crosby has 7.5 sacks and Erik Harris has three interceptions.
The Jaguars are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 vs. AFC and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Raiders are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games, 17-35-1 ATS in their last 53 games as a favorite and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Jaguars last 5 road games. The over is 4-1 in Raiders last 5 home games. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are getting thumped left and right, and they're averaging just 11.4 points during their five-game losing streak. The Oakland Raiders haven't looked good in their own right during their three-game losing streak and the defense has given up a combined 116 points. With that said, the Raiders have been the better and more consistent team this season, and this will be the last game at the RingCentral Coliseum. You can expect the Raiders to put on a show and look to end this era on a high note. I'll take the Raiders by a touchdown in their last home game before leaving for Las Vegas.
