Jaguars vs. Lions Preview
The Jacksonville Jaguars will travel 1,013 miles to take on the Detroit Lions on Sunday. Both teams are extreme surprises this season: Jacksonville being a disappointment and Detroit playing much better than predicted by nearly every expert. A tale of two different seasons. One team has a potential MVP candidate at quarterback in Matthew Stafford and the other has undeveloped, underperforming Blake Bortles. Detroit is atop their division while Jacksonville is at the bottom. Amidst all this, I think it is going to be a much closer game than people anticipate.
Both offenses are nearly identical in every offensive (per game) category. Detroit is a 6.5 point favorite being at home per . I am curious to see each team's offensive numbers after the game. I do not agree with the 6.5 spread, but that maybe why I don't bet nor work in Vegas. I guess we will have to wait until Sunday to see.
