The Jacksonville Jaguars gave their fans a lump of coal for Christmas in the form of a terrible loss in last week’s home finale to the Atlanta Falcons. Despite coming into the contest with a 6 game losing streak and almost no confidence, the Falcons managed to find their offense against a horrific Jacksonville secondary.

It was yet another game in which the Jaguars helped the opposing team bounce back after a tough week (see, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Tennessee Titans, San Diego Chargers). The Jaguars are in a similar situation facing the New Orleans Saints this Sunday.
In what has become a lost season, the Saints face several questions in the looming offseason, primarily about quarterback Drew Brees and head coach Sean Payton. The two offensive savants have been less than stellar this year, but it’s hard to blame that side of the ball when the Saints boast one of the worst secondaries in the history of the NFL. With the Jaguars’ defense also having trouble stopping opposing passing attacks, this game should be a shootout.
So what’s going to go down on Sunday? Can the Jaguars beat a good quarterback? Click ahead to see my “rock solid” predictions:
