The Jacksonville Jaguars’ first victory of the 2021 season came against the Miami Dolphins on a last-minute field goal by Matthew Wright at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. They’ll fly to London again this year, but this time, the Denver Broncos will await them at Wembley Stadium.
Both clubs are 2-5 ahead of the game and find themselves in must-win situations. Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett’s job security could be hanging by a threat if his team losses. While Doug Pederson’s seat is considerably cooler, Jacksonville is currently sitting on a four-game losing streak, and losing another one put a significant nail in their season.
With this in mind, here’s everything you need to know for the game, including the odds the spread, and different alternatives to watch it.

Jaguars vs. Broncos Injury Report for Week 8
The Jaguars aren’t dealing with any major injuries right now. Earlier in the week, the team placed cornerback Shaquill Griffin, who has been bothered by a back injury, on the Injured Reserve list. Veteran Tre Herndon will take his place in the starting lineup opposite Tyson Campbell.
Although Herndon allowed a touchdown against the New York Giants, he’s performed well more often than. He will make his third start of the year against the Broncos and will have a chance to boost his stock. He’s set to become a free agent next year, so performing well in the upcoming weeks would increase his asking price and the demand for his services.
Return specialist Jamal Agnew is the only Jaguar listed as questionable for the London game. He was limited in practice with a knee injury. He missed the game against the Giants and could end up becoming a game-time decision Sunday. Recently acquired cornerback Tevaughn Campbell, defensive tackle Adam Gotsis, and safety Tyree Gillispie have all been ruled out.
On the Broncos’ sideline, cornerback Essang Bassey (hamstring), outside linebacker Baron Browning (hip), wide receiver Tyrie Cleveland (groin), offensive tackle Cameron Fleming (quad), safety Caden Sterns (hip) have been ruled out.
