What to watch for
The Jaguars are looking to end a five-game losing streak when the Raiders come to town. Under new Head Coach Doug Pederson, Jacksonville came out to a hot start to the season that included two dominant wins: 24-0 over the Colts in Week 2 and 38-10 over the Chargers in Week 3. Five consecutive losses have bogged the team down, including a close four-point loss to the Broncos in London last Sunday. They've held a lead in all six of their losses, with four of those leads lost in the fourth quarter. It is sure to be a challenge on the gridiron as both the Jaguars and Raiders look to rebound after losses.
The Silver and Black offense will have to contend with a stingy defense that ranks 10th in the league in points allowed (19.8 points per game) and has two young defensive standouts in Pro Bowler Josh Allen and 2022 No. 1 overall pick Travon Walker.
"We got to play with them in the preseason, which is beneficial. So, the guys have studied them a little bit, but I think it starts in the film room today," offensive coordinator Mick Lombardi said Tuesday. "The guys are hard at work kind of studying their habits, looking at their tendencies in terms of pass rushes – how they play the run, what fronts they play. We're getting a head start on that. That's a challenge for the offensive line."
The Jaguars lead the all-time regular season series against the Raiders, 5-4, since their first matchup in 1966. The two teams met earlier this year in the preseason Hall of Fame Game, where the Raiders won 27-11 in Canton. Their last regular season matchup came on Dec. 15, 2019, with the visiting Jaguars taking home a 20-16 win.
Following Week 8, the Raiders offense ranks 16th in the league in total offense (340.9 yards per game), 17th in passing (225.3 ypg), 18th in rushing (115.6 ypg) and tied for 12th in points (23.3 ppg). Defensively, the Raiders rank 25th in total defense (366.7 ypg), 25th in passing (258.1 ypg), 10th in rushing (108.6 ypg) and tied for 25th in points allowed (TK ppg).
The Jaguars rank ninth in total offense (363.0 ypg), 21st in passing (218.9 ypg), seventh in rushing (144.1 ypg) and 20th in points (21.5 ppg). Defensively, the Jaguars rank 18th in total defense (346.3 ypg), 22nd in passing (237.1 ypg), 12th in rushing (109.1 ypg) and 10th in points allowed (19.8 ppg).
