The Jacksonville Jaguars will head to Michigan on Thursday in preparation for their preseason matchup with the Detroit Lions at Ford Field. It's the all important third preseason game for both teams, which means that you will see the starters likely playing into the third quarter and it will be the closest to a real game that we'll get until opening day.

The big story revolving around the game is that the Jaguars will be giving No. 3 overall pick Blake Bortles snaps with the first team offense against the Lions first team defense. Chad Henne will start the game and play about a quarter and a half before the rookie quarterback gets in the game. It will be a big test for Bortles, who's looked excellent in the first two preseason games, but those games were against backups.

The other big storyline for the Jaguars is at the center position, with Jacques McClendon getting the start and likely playing well into the third quarter. If he can perform well for the majority of the game, he could lock down a starting job and potentially force Michael Brewster off the roster. The interior of the Jaguars line has been in flux and the running game has suffered, but hopefully once the lineup has been figured out that will pick up.
