The Jacksonville Jaguars return to London this week as they try to extend their ‘home-away-from-home’ win streak to 3 against the Baltimore Ravens.
This year’s London game harbors some huge implications for the Jacksonville Jaguars, despite the fact it’s only the third game of the year.
The Jaguars squandered a huge opportunity in their home opener last week, as they failed to take a commanding 2-0 lead in the AFC South in an embarrassing loss to the Tennessee Titans.
While the defense has shown significant promise over the first two weeks, it’s clear the team is trying to win in spite of some sub-par quarterback play. The playcalling was representative of a team afraid to ask their quarterback to do too much and it doesn’t appear the offensive gameplan is going to change.

That being said, the Jaguars still have a talented team and they have chance this week as they square off against the undefeated Baltimore Ravens.
This is the third year in a row the Jaguars and Ravens have played and the previous two contests were both ugly slugfests. In 2015, the Jaguars eked out a victory with the help of an Elvis Dumervil facemask on the final play of the game. Last year, the Jaguars squandered the game away with multiple turnovers in the final quarter. Both games were offensive atrocities where neither quarterback looked comfortable.
So what’s going to happen this Sunday? Will Blake Bortles and Joe Flacco continue their game of bad quarterback chicken, or will the offenses finally shine? Click ahead to read my notorious, always correct predictions for week 3:
