The Jacksonville Jaguars (2-3) will look to extend their current two-game winning streak against the Oakland Raiders (4-2) at EverBank Field on Sunday.
Jacksonville stole a win in the final minutes of their Week 6 matchup against the Chicago Bears. Despite being dominated for three quarters, a 17-point output in the fourth quarter lifted the Big Cats over the Bears. The Jaguars will now look to find some consistency heading into Week 7.
The Raiders got off to a hot start this season but lost to the Kansas City Chiefs last week. Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has been stellar this season, completing 66.5 percent of his passes. He has 12 passing touchdowns in six games this year. Pass rusher Khalil Mack will also be a concern for the Jaguars.
