As the Jacksonville Jaguars inch closer to the beginning of the 2014 regular season, they still have a handful of question marks on the roster. Their quest to find answers continues tonight, as they face-off against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field.
After a solid defensive performance against a less-than-stellar Tampa Bay Buccaneers offense, the Jaguars face a much tougher test against a Jay Cutler led offense flanked by a towering trio of receivers in Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, and Martellus Bennett. The first team defense is out to prove they can play well against above average offenses, not just floundering ones.
Offensively, the Jaguars need to show they can hold up along the interior offensive line. The team has been shuffling players around at the center position, which doesn’t bode well for veteran Mike Brewster. The Bears defense is looking to be much improved over last season, and the first team offense needs to do something to justify Chad Henne starting going into the regular season.
