The Jacksonville Jaguars head to Chicago to take on the Bears on Thursday night in a nationally televised preseason game, the only game of the day. The Jaguars will have their game called by ESPN's Monday Night Football crew, Mike Tirico and Jon Gruden, so expect to hear a lot about Gruden's Ginders and "THIS GUY".
It will be a good test for the Jaguars coming off a game against the Buccaneers where the Jags defensive line seemed to dominate not just with the starters, but even into the second and third team. The Bears offensive line will be a much tough test and they have a much better quarterback tossing the football.
On the flip side, it will be just as big a test for the Jaguars offensive line, as the Bears defensive line as a whole is just as good, if not better, than the Bucs line the interior struggled with. We will likely see the Jaguars shuffle some players around at center and guard throughout the game as the team tries to figure out who exactly will start.
