A pair of 0-1 teams meet on Sunday as the Jacksonville Jaguars head west to take on the San Diego Chargers.
Jacksonville fell to Green Bay while the Chargers coughed up a giant lead to the Chiefs in Week 1.
The Jaguars opened up with Aaron Rodgers and the Packers at home in Week 1 and they gave them all they could handle, but eventually fell late in a 27-23 game.
If anything, the loss did show they are able to compete with the top tier teams in the NFL.
Jacksonville never let the Packers pull away, keeping the pressure on throughout.
QB Blake Bortles finished 24 of 29 for 320 yards to go along with a touchdown and interception. Bortles continued to make play after play, but failed to step up late in the 4th quarter.
If RB Chris Ivory is out once again, look for the pass game to be do or die for the Jags.
Allen Hurns, Allen Robinson, and Julius Thomas all proved to have chemistry with Bortles, as this Jacksonville offense is going to be a tough one to stop.
San Diego Chargers
The Chargers had a chance to send a message to the league, but choked away a 17 point lead as they eventually lost in overtime.
If the loss wasn’t bad enough, WR Keenan Allen tore his ACL and is going to miss the entire season.
While it doesn’t seem like much else can go wrong for the Chargers, they’ll look to a couple of WRs to step up here.
Tyrell Williams and Travis Benjamin are the top two expected targets for Philip Rivers here in Week 2.
Rivers finished with 243 yards and added a touchdown in the Week 1 loss.
Melvin Gordon and Danny Woodhead will both get a lot more touches as the offense tries to find their passing game.
Gordon was the better of the two in Week 1, as he found the endzone twice.
