The Jacksonville Jaguars will travel to play the New York Jets in a showdown between two teams with five combined wins on Sunday afternoon.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are 2-12 this season and have lost six games in a row. Jacksonville is coming off of a loss to the Houston Texans by a score of 30-16 in their last game. Jacksonville actually had more yards than the Texans, but had issues when they got in the red zone resulting in field goals. Jacksonville is averaging 14 points per game and is giving up 26.4 points per game against, while also averaging 199.6 passing yards per game and 103 rushing yards per game. Trevor Lawrence has completed 58.1% of his passes this season for 2,945 yards, 9 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions. James Robinson has rushed for 757 yards and 8 touchdowns, while Marvin Jones Jr. has caught 56 passes for 624 yards and 3 touchdowns for the Jaguars. Jacksonville fired their head coach, Urban Meyer, before their last game and is trying to figure out how to proceed with an interim head coach.
The New York Jets are 3-11 this season and have lost their last three games. New York lost to Miami in their last game by a score of 31-24. The Jets came back from 10 points down to tie the game in the fourth quarter before the Dolphins scored with 3:37 left in the game for the win. The Jets are averaging 17.9 points per game and are giving up 30.6 points per game against, while also averaging 229.4 passing yards per game and 85.4 rushing yards per game. Zach Wilson has completed 56.2% of his passes for 1,911 yards, 6 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions. Michael Carter has rushed for 448 yards and 4 touchdowns, while Keelan Cole is has caught 21 passes for 335 yards and 0 touchdowns for New York. The Jets receiving group has been decimated by injuries, missing Moore, Davis, and Crowder.
Jacksonville is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 December games. The under is 5-0 in Jacksonville’s last 5 road games. New York is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games. The over is 8-3 in New York’s last 11 games. The over is 4-0 in these two teams last 4 head to head meetings.
Both of these teams have really struggled this season and are looking to just get the season over with. Jacksonville is trying to see what they have with Trevor Lawrence and New York is doing the same with Zach Wilson. The Jaguars defense really struggled against the Texans last week and I expect the Jets offense to find some success here. I like the Jets.
