Both teams enter with one season win and two of the league’s worst defenses to date. The Lions came out last week but lost to the Saints 35-29 the last time. This loss represented Detroit’s third loss of the season, by a double-digit lead.
Jacksonville lost the Four Straits after a dramatic victory in the opening match. The team had been dealing with a string of injuries recently but had been close to healthy for the whole week. This post will also be updated with active and inactive players as soon as it becomes available until kick-off. NFL Network Reports Jaguars DJ Chark’s receiver will be a match time decision with an ankle injury. The talented arrogant Josh Allen is still questioned, “and he doesn’t seem promising.”
The Lions enter Sunday’s match as a three-point favorite from most odds makers. Job Network reports that 65% of the public bets are directed toward Detroit. Total over / under ranges between 53.5 and 54 points.
For those looking for an interesting story to watch, look no further than the new John Brown Kicker Jaguar. A player has never attempted a field goal in a high school, college, or NFL game that is counted. Brown played football at the University of Kentucky, later took on kick-off matches at the University of Louisville, and then spent time with the Bengals in pre-season 2018. He is set to be the fifth player Jaguar has used this season.
