Biggest story lines heading into the weekend:
-Pressure is a big theme of the game for this matchup of Raiders vs Jaguars. Whether pressure is coming down on the coaching staff, quarterback play or defensive schemes—both teams should feel plenty of it based off the play in this game alone.
-I said last week that the 4-game stretch could determine the future of this regime and while they squeaked out a W vs. a terrible Chicago team, it was still a sloppy, ugly win. But as Alfie from BCC said–sometimes you need the ugly wins to build a little confidence and keep the season from feeling like a utter waste so early on. Can the Blake Bortles led offense outplay Derek Carr to prove the Jaguars were right in drafting him 3rd overall?
-With all that a sliver of hope has cautiously creeped back into the fanbase and make no mistake, we want this win, but the play on the field will see a rowdy crowd when the Jags are on defense or a very ugly boo session if this team isn’t competitive.
-If the Jags win, it’s the first time the team will be at 500 record this late into the season. Only other time this has happened was in 2015 after two weeks. But if they lose, and lose bad, these next 5 days to include this game and to turnaround on a short week to play the rival Titans, could decide if Gus is fired mid season or if the team will wait until the offseason to pull the trigger.
