Jaguars vs. Rams Guide: What you need to know for Week 6

The Jaguars (3-2) will play at EverBank Field for the first time since Week 2 when the team hosts the Los Angeles Rams (3-2) Sunday.

The Jaguars are coming off a 30-9 defeat of the Pittsburgh Steelers on the road. The team has established its best five-game record in quite some time and the group is looking to add to the win total. Running back Leonard Fournette is likely to receive another full workload this week, while the defense looks to shut down the high-powered Los Angeles offense.

The Rams are coming off a 16-10 loss to the Seattle Seahawks at home. Los Angeles is 2-0 on the road this season and will look to clinch their third-straight win away from home against the Jaguars.
