Jaguars vs. Eagles

The Eagles come in looking to get their up-tempo offense off to a fast start and the Jaguars will be looking to slow them down.  The only chance the Jags have is to get a running game going with Toby Gerhart and to try to get the Eagles and quarterback Nick Foles to turn the ball over.  Otherwise the Jaguars don’t have the fire power to stay with the Eagles.

Winner:  Eagles

Score prediction:     28-17  Eagles   

Points spread:      Eagles  – 10.5

Over/under:  52.5 – Under
