The Patriots will look to beat the Jags on Sunday to keep their hopes of a first round bye alive.
The Patriots and Jaguars will meet in Jacksonville on Sunday playing for very different things. New England will be looking to win out, and give themselves a shot at a first round bye in the AFC playoffs. Jacksonville fans may have an eye on some very different results, as the 2-12 season has the Jags in position to possibly end up picking first in the NFL draft.
New England will hope to ride their explosive offense to their 11th win of the year. They have played six teams with records under .500 this season, winning them all and averaging 39.5 points in the process. Brandon Lloyd caught a career-high 10 passes in the Patriots' loss last weekend, with Tom Brady attempting a career high 65 passes.
The Jags have yet to beat a team with a record over .500 this season, and they have won only once at home. Chad Henne will continue to start at quarterback for the Jags, but he has struggled in recent games after a pair of decent starts in November.
