Things To Look For

You have to like what you’ve seen from both teams so far this year, although the Jaguars’ up-and-down play has been somewhat perplexing. The team has shown the capability of playing with teams and yet laid an egg in its only appearance at Jacksonville. Meanwhile, Todd Bowles’ club showed a lot of fight in last week’s near shutout of the Miami Dolphins. And is Blake Bortles finally ready to get on a roll? This is one of the more mysterious games of Week 4.
