The Jacksonville Jaguars are visiting the Philadelphia Eagles for their 2014 NFL regular season opener. The game will kick off at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday afternoon.
There are certainly some questions for the Jaguars, especially on the offensive side of the ball. How will Toby Gerhart play in his first feature role? Will rookie receivers Marqise Lee, Allen Robinson, and Allen Hurns elevate their game for the regular season? Can Chad Henne stave off Blake Bortles as the starting quarterback?

Trent Cole gets the sack and FF, Cox gets the 17-yard TD recovery. #EaglesTalk— Geoff Mosher (@GeoffMosherCSN) September 7, 2014
The last thing we needed was a fat guy touchdown.— BCCGameday Tweets (@BCCGameday) September 7, 2014
4:18 PM: Ugggghhhh...
#Eagles rookie kicker Cody Parkey kicks his second field goal of the game, #Eagles now lead 27-17.— BCCGameday Tweets (@BCCGameday) September 7, 2014
4:10 PM: Chad Henne had a fourth-and-one. Chad Henne had a wide open Marcedes Lewis. Chad Henne overthrew him.
"Chad Henne." http://t.co/n7BRcYK40z— BCCGameday Tweets (@BCCGameday) September 7, 2014
4:03 PM: Saying Jeremy Maclin was "wide open" is an understatement.
Wow. 68-yard TD pass from Foles to a wide open Maclin.— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) September 7, 2014
3:47 PM: *pats brow with handkerchief*
Parkey 51FG for Eagles good -- tie-game at 17, 10:55 left.— Ryan O'Halloran (@ryanohalloran) September 7, 2014
3:13 PM: That's 14 unanswered points in the first six minutes of the third quarter. Man.
Touchdown stands ... Jaguars 17, Eagles 14 | Zach Ertz 25 pass from Nick Foles (Cody Parkey kick), 7:19 remaining third quarter.— John Oehser (@JohnOehser) September 7, 2014
3:00 PM: J.T. Thomas made a great stop on third down, but Chip Kelly brought the no-huddle on fourth-and-short and the gamble paid off.
Jags defense got caught being a little slow lining up on fourth down. Sproles exploits it for a 49-yard TD up the middle.— Michael DiRocco (@ESPNdirocco) September 7, 2014

Walking into your stadium and setting a franchise record for sacks like… pic.twitter.com/jALoeSVD9E— BCCGameday Tweets (@BCCGameday) September 7, 2014
2:33 PM: The Jaguars defensive line is literally having its best half ever. *faints again*
That's a franchise-record five sacks in the first half for Jaguars.— John Oehser (@JohnOehser) September 7, 2014
2:14 PM: Another missed kick by Josh Scobee, this one a block. But, hey, Jaguars still up 17-0 so...
Josh Scobee’s kick is blocked by #Eagles! Again… #Jaguars still up 17-0.— BCCGameday Tweets (@BCCGameday) September 7, 2014
2:08 PM: Alan Ball with the interception in the end zone on Nick Foles' first pass into the end zone!

Josh Scobee with a 49-yard field goal! #Jaguars up 17-0 on the #Eagles! (Also, free Firehouse sub!)— BCCGameday Tweets (@BCCGameday) September 7, 2014
1:49 PM: At the end of the first quarter, the Eagles defense committed a horse collar tackle on Gerhart. He's currently trying to walk it off on the sideline. He wants back in.
Denard Robinson in at running back for the Jaguars after Toby Gerhart goes off with an injury. Also, Chad Henne has already thrown for 2 TD.— Scott Bell (@sbell021) September 7, 2014
1:31 PM: *does cabbage patch*
Undrafted FA Allen Hurns is 1st rookie in at least 50 years with 2 TD catches in the 1st quarter of Week 1— Jeremy Lundblad (@JLundbladESPN) September 7, 2014
1:23 PM: HENNE TO HURNS AGAIN! JAGUARS UP 14-0! OMG OMG OMG
ALLEN HURNS ARE YOU KIDDING??? TWO CATCHES, TWO TDS. #ProCanes— Miami Hurricanes (@MiamiHurricanes) September 7, 2014
1:21 PM: Great coverage by the secondary and linebackers. Andre Branch with the sack-and-fumble. What is even happening?
Branch!!!!!!!!!! I see you hitsquad!!!!!!— Ace Sanders (@WhyNot8Teen) September 7, 2014
1:14 PM: JAGUARS UP 7-0! WOOOOOOOOOOO!

1:09 PM: And the ruling on the field stands! *defensive line wins MVP award*
Jaguars DE Chris Clemons with sack fumble on Nick Foles. Ryan Davis recovers. They're reviewing.— John Oehser (@JohnOehser) September 7, 2014
1:05 PM: It was third-and-one and should be Toby Gerhart's strength.
#Jaguars go three-and-out on first series. Interior offensive line has to do better.— BCCGameday Tweets (@BCCGameday) September 7, 2014
1:02 PM: I CAN'T STOP SHAKING.
#Eagles win the coin toss and defer. #Jaguars will receive the opening kickoff!— BCCGameday Tweets (@BCCGameday) September 7, 2014
