Jacksonville Jaguars Preview – Sports Illustrated Las Vegas Raiders News, Analysis and More
The Las Vegas Raiders were hampered in every facet of the game in their 24-0 loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.
They won’t have time to mope, as it’s back to business this week, with the Raiders hitting the road again to face the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Usually one of the lesser teams in the NFL, the Jaguars only have a 2(wins)-6(losses) record this season, but they’ve been able to amass some notable young talent.
Sophomore quarterback Trevor Lawerence has yet to set the world on fire, but he was the first overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft for a reason.
He has a dangerous running back behind him in rookie Travis Etienne and capable wide receivers like veterans like Christian Kirk and Zay Jones.
The one area that is likely to have surprised people this year is the jaguars defense, which ranks 11th in the league in points allowed.

Rookies like linebacker Devin Lloyd and other young players like cornerback Tyson Campbell and passing thrower Josh Allen have done their part to make the Jaguars a respectable unit.
They’re a team that arguably played better than their current mark of two wins, but the same could be said for the Raiders, and yet, they’re both there.
Either way, the game between these two teams is shaping up to be one where both could be looking for silver linings to hang their hats on in what could be a lost season for both of them.
