Jacksonville Jaguars Daily: What can Raiders expect on Sunday?

NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at Oakland Raiders Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Oakland Raiders opponent outlook: What do 2-3 Jacksonville Jaguars bring? -
Oakland’s two-week road stretch couldn’t come at a better time. Following a 26-10 loss to AFC West rival Kansas City, the Raiders hit the road, where they’re 3-0 this season. First up is Jacksonville in Week 7. Here’s a look at what to expect from the Jaguars.

Jalen Ramsey delivered when it mattered -
Through the first half of the Jacksonville Jaguars victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday, it appeared as if rookie cornerback Jalen Ramsey was finally going to have his “welcome to the NFL” moment as he was continuously beat by veteran wide receiver Alshon Jeffery. We all knew there would be a game where Ramsey would just get beat for most of the game, but I don’t think many expected it to be against one of the bigger more physical receivers in the NFL, which should play right into Ramsey’s strengths. Most thought it would be the little fast guys, but none the less Ramsey struggled for the first half shadowing Jeffery.

Day that was: “It’s not coming along” -
The Jaguars’ struggles to run continue. The Jaguars in four of five games this season have rushed for less than 100 yards, a trend that continued Sunday in a come-from-behind victory over Chicago. Chris Ivory’s one-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter was the veteran’s first rushing touchdown since joining the Jaguars in the offseason, but for the game the Jaguars rushed for 54 yards on 20 carries.
