The Jacksonville Jaguars will play the New York Jets on Thursday night at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Jacksonville gained 503 total yards and was able to overcome three turnovers for the win. The Jacksonville offense is averaging 23.9 points per game with 240.7 passing yards per game and 127.2 rushing yards per game. Trevor Lawrence has thrown for 3,520 yards, 24 touchdowns, and seven interceptions for the Jaguars this season.

The Jacksonville defense is giving up 23.4 points per game and 370.7 yards per game.

The New York Jets are 7-7 this season after they lost to the Detroit Lions by a score of 20-17 in their last game. New York was out gained by a total of 359-337 and turned the ball over one time in the loss. The New York offense is averaging 20.1 points per game with 229.2 passing yards per game and 107.6 rushing yards per game. Zach Wilson has thrown for 1,596 yards, six touchdowns, and six interceptions for the Jets this season. Zonovan Knight has rushed for 253 yards and one touchdown, while Garrett Wilson has caught 67 passes for 966 yards and four scores for New York. The New York defense is allowing 18.8 points per game and 305.4 yards per game.

Jacksonville is 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games against the AFC and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games. The over is 4-0 in Jacksonville’s last 4 games. New York is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Week 16 games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Thursday games. The under is 7-2 in New York’s last 9 games. The over is 5-0 in these two team's last 5 head-to-head meetings.

New York comes into this game with a three game losing streak and will be starting Zach Wilson, as Mike White is still out. Jacksonville has won two games in a row, including a very surprising come back win against Dallas. Jacksonville has been involved in high scoring games in their last five games, while New York has allowed at least 20 points in their last three games. I like the over here.
