The Jaguars (0-1) will travel to the West Coast to face off against Phillip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers (0-1) on Sunday. Jacksonville hosted San Diego last season and was unable to tame Rivers and the Chargers passing game. With a new and improved defense, the Jaguars will hope to keep Rivers in check.
Both teams are coming off emotional losses. The Jaguars lost a close, competitive season opener to the Green Bay Packers at home. The Chargers allowed a massive comeback to the Kansas Chiefs. Week 2 could lead to redemption for one of the two squads and leave the loser in pretty rough shape.
