Both teams come into this contest struggling in the turnover over department this season, Jacksonville has only forced 12 turnovers all season which is eight lowest in the NFL. San Diego is in a similar situation, they have only forced nine turnovers all season long and they given away the ball 16 times. Both teams rank very poorly in the turnover margin department as well but one of these teams will have to step up if they want to get a victory.
In their last two victories the Jaguars have forced five turnovers and even though four of them were against Baltimore, it will still be a huge factor in this game. Phillip Rivers will be looking to shred the Jaguars passing defense throughout the whole game and if they force him to make some mistakes then should have a good chance of winning. If the Jaguars do indeed get their third straight victory, then look for Davon House to have a big game. House has registered three turnovers in his last two contests and his play has greatly improved since his poor outing against Houston.
Even though the Chargers enter this contest with only two wins on the season, I still think this will be a tough matchup for the Jaguars. If the Jags want to end their seven game losing streak to the AFC West then they will need to establish the run, pressure the quarterback, and win the turnover battle.
