This Sunday, the Atlanta Falcons face off against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Each of these teams has suffered two straight losses and is in need of a win. Unfortunately, for both teams, the injury list continues to grow as well. The Falcons, fresh off of a 25-0 loss to the Patriots, are hoping to put last week behind them. Can they find a way to bounce back against Jacksonville?

The Jacksonville Jaguars are coming off of a 30-10 loss to the 49ers. Jacksonville has had a tough year so far, and it just keeps getting worse. They have one of the league’s worst scoring offenses, and it’s what’s led to their 2-8 record. As they prepare to host the Jaguars, we have to wonder if this is the perfect match-up for them. Especially with the Falcons terrible defense.

Atlanta Falcons at Jacksonville Jaguars Preview

The Atlanta Falcons have one of the worst offenses and defenses in the NFL. On average, they score just 17.8 points per game and allow 28.8 points per game. This makes their game against the Jaguars an incredibly close game to call. Each of these teams has similar offenses and defenses; the only thing separating them is their conference.

To win this game, the Falcons need to focus on pressuring Trevor Lawrence. Lawrence is known for turning the ball over, which the Falcons can use to their advantage. However, the Falcons will need to be careful themselves to not fall victim to turnovers. We hope to see the Falcons slow down the pace and focus on staying in front of the sticks.

This is a great question because there isn’t just one thing the Jaguars need to do. There is a multitude of things Jacksonville can do to perform better on Sunday. For starters, trying to establish a rushing game is a great start. The Falcons allow over 123 yards rushing per game; the Jaguars should use this to their advantage.

If they can establish a running game of their own, they’ll likely be able to get the passing game going. This will also alleviate some of the pressure off Trevor Lawrence, which will definitely help. By keeping the game as simple as possible, the Jaguars can control the clock and put points on the board. They’ll still need to play great defense on Sunday, though.

Falcons at Jaguars Prediction

Falcons 24 - Jaguars 20

These teams are so similar that it makes it a tough game to call. However, in their last three games against Jacksonville, the Falcons are 3-0. We should also note that the Falcons are 3-0 against the spread in their last three against the Jaguars.

This gives us slightly more confidence in the Falcons to pull this one-off. There are some injuries to the Jaguars' cornerbacks as well which should open the passing game. We’ll take the road team to come in and win this game, albeit by a narrow margin.

EXTRA POINTS

1. The Atlanta Falcons are 5-0 against the spread in their last five against Jacksonville.

2. The total has gone under in five of the Jaguars' last five games.

3. The Atlanta Falcons are 3-2 ATS when playing on the road this season.

Best Bet: Atlanta Falcons -1

Atlanta Falcons vs. Jacksonville Jaguars Recap NOV 28TH 2021

Cordarrelle Patterson ran for 108 yards and two touchdowns as the Atlanta Falcons defeated the host Jacksonville Jaguars 21-14 on Sunday afternoon.

Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan threw for a touchdown, but had only 190 yards through the air. He was intercepted once.

Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence was 23-for-42 for 228 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

Patterson, who didn't play in the previous game because of an ankle injury, had 84 rushing yards by halftime. He finished with 16 carries.

Atlanta (5-6) held a 21-3 lead by the midway mark of the third quarter. The first points of the second half came on Ryan's TD pass to Russell Gage that covered 12 yards.

The Jaguars (2-9) finally got to the end zone with 28 seconds left in the third quarter on Lawrence's 7-yard pass to Tavon Austin followed by a two-point conversion throw.

Matthew Wright's 34-yard field goal came at the end of a 14-play drive with 6:33 left, trimming Jacksonville's deficit to 21-14.

The Jaguars got the ball back with slightly more than two minutes to play but managed just one first down before giving the ball back on downs.

The Falcons drove 81 yards in nine plays for the game's first points on Patterson's 7-yard run. He had 41 yards on four carries during the drive.

That also gave Atlanta some much-desired points after it was a victim of a shutout in its last game against New England.

Jacksonville reached Atlanta territory on its second possession, but Lawrence was intercepted by Duron Harmon. The Jaguars turned it over again on their next possession on James Robinson's fumble.

On the ensuing drive, the Falcons needed four plays to go 29 yards, with Patterson's 12-yard rush resulting in points. That came after Atlanta chose to wipe a field goal off the board because of a Jacksonville unsportsmanlike penalty a play earlier.

The Jaguars scored on Wright's 22-yard field goal in the final minute of the first half to complete a 14-play possession that covered 70 yards.

Jacksonville had eight first downs and 153 yards of total offense in the first half.
