The Jaguars are set to wrap up the preseason on the road Thursday night against the Atlanta Falcons.
Jacksonville is coming off back-to-back disappointing losses to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Carolina Panthers at EverBank Field. Since beating the New England Patriots in Week 1 of the preseason, the team has struggled to find consistency from its starting groups.
The Falcons have yet to win a game in the preseason. Atlanta's latest loss was on Saturday against the Arizona Cardinals.
Both teams will mostly feature their depth units in the annual backup bowl exhibition game. It's an important contest for players on the fringe of the roster.
