Prediction

The Chargers made a huge mistake by sending all of their starters in the last game of the regular season against the Broncos as Mike Williams got injured and will miss this game vs Jaguars. The Jaguars have been on fire lately as they won their last 5 games playing very tough defense and allowing an average of 7.3 points per game in the last 3 games. They already beat the Chargers earlier this season on the road so playing at home will give them a bigger advantage. Take the Jaguars.

PICK: Jaguars +2.5 (-110)
