The Jacksonville Jaguars are visiting Washington in the second week of the 2014 NFL regular season. The game kicks off at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday afternoon.
In the opener last week against the Philadelphia Eagles, the Jaguars were frustrating. They built a 17-point lead by halftime, but then squandered it away with a poor running game, inconsistent quarterbacking, and a tired (and injured) defense. I believe Jacksonville can (and should) win today, but it's not going to happen if none of those three things are fixed.
