The Jacksonville Jaguars managed to win just three games in 2021. All of them were meaningful but the best one was arguably against the Buffalo Bills in Week 9. At the time, Buffalo was a powerhouse and the Jags entered the game with a 1-8 record, so it looked like it was going to turn into a blowout.

However, Jacksonville's defense took a stance and stymied the juggernaut the Bills offense was. In particular, outside linebacker Josh Allen had a huge performance, registering a sack, scooping a fumble, and snagging an interception. In the end, Jacksonville won 9-6.

It's been two years since then and both teams are set to play in Week 5 in London. The Bills have lost just one game this season and enter the bout as a 5-point favorite. Thus, it will be no easy task to take them down. Then again, the Jags pulled it off two years ago, so don't rule them out just yet. With that in mind, here are five bold predictions for Sunday.

No. 5. Jaguars OLB Josh Allen will register 3 sacks, 1 INT vs. Bills

Outside linebacker Josh Allen is in a contract year and he's making the most of his opportunities to prove he deserves a long-term contract that reflects his status as one of the best pass rushers in the league. Although he didn't register a sack in Weeks 2 or 3, he's got six this season.

Allen should be highly motivated to have a monster year against Buffalo like he had three years ago. So not only expect him to tally three sacks but to register an interception as well.
