4. Trevor Lawrence will end his TD drought, will score in Week 12.

The Jaguars had struggled to score in recent weeks. One of them is the heel injury running back James Robinson suffered against the Seattle Seahawks. Also, DJ Chark Jr. and Jamal Agnew are out for the year. This has left Jacksonville with a bare cupboard on offense. Over the last four games, they’ve averaged less than 11 points, and Trevor Lawrence hasn’t thrown a touchdown pass since Week 8.

That will change in Week 12. The Jaguars’ offense will be more efficient and will score two touchdowns. Robinson will get one, and Lawrence the last one.

5. The Jaguars’ defense will register three sacks and an interception.

The Jaguars registered two sacks against the 49ers and will keep that trend alive in Week 12. They will log three sacks and an interception. Even though the defense hasn’t played at the same level it did in Week 9, the unit has still been efficient.

Against the Falcons, they will do a good job of pressuring quarterback Matt Ryan and will force him to make mistakes, which will lead to him throwing a pick. Despite the fact that Ryan is 36, he’s still going strong and has had a solid season. Nevertheless, the Jags’ defense will give him a hard time.
