The Jaguars and Saints both enter this Week 16 matchup with identical 5-9 records and will meet for the first time since 2011.
Both teams have been eliminated from the playoffs, but will try to finish the season off on a high note.
Jacksonville will look to build off the solid core of younger talent they’ve built with draft picks over the past couple seasons.
The Jaguars took a giant step backwards last week as they fell to Atlanta 23-17 on Sunday.
This lackluster effort came after they took it to the Indianapolis Colts 51-16 just 2 weeks ago. Jacksonville has been unable to put together any sort of winning streak or build off wins such as the one against the Colts two weeks ago.
The loss completely eliminated the Jags from playoff contention and while that comes as a major disappointment, this team has a lot of hope for the future and a lot to build off of.
QB Blake Bortles had a successful 2nd season in the NFL as he has racked up 3821 yards to go along with 31 touchdowns. WRs Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson have both become short and long threats for Bortles.
RB TJ Yeldon has compiled 740 yards to go along with 2 touchdowns, but has been bitten by the injury bug down the stretch of the season.
The Saints defense has been the major blame for their failures here in 2015.
New Orleans has given up an average of 30.9 points per game and saw their defense fail on Monday Night Football as they gave up 35 to the Detroit Lions in a 35-27 loss. QB Drew Brees got the Saints to within 28-20 with 10 minutes to go, but the defense collapsed, as usual, and allowed the Lions to drive right down the field and score.
Even with the loss, QB Drew Brees efforts shouldn’t go unnoticed. Brees became the 4th QB in NFL history to surpass 60,000 yards while also throwing for 4,000 yards for the 10th straight season.
Brees has found his wide out in Brandin Cooks, who has clearly stepped up as the #1 receiver going forward. Cooks has 74 receptions for 993 yards and has added 8 touchdowns to his credit.
New Orleans brings in just a 3-4 SU record into this one at home.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Jacksonville ATS
The Jags have more talent all around here. Their offense has so many threats and their defense is clearly much better here.
Look for them to take plenty of shots offensively down field and really put pressure on Brees defensively.
