Jacksonville at New England Game Preview

Why Jacksonville Will Win

So what’s going right through all of the turmoil and all the changes? The offense is starting to play a wee bit better. It helped to face the Jets last week, but the passing attack had its best performance in weeks and the ground attack was able to provide enough balance to matter.

New England might be great overall defensively, but it was hit hard by Josh Allen and the Bills last week and had problems with the Colt and Falcon running games in previous weeks.
