The Jacksonville Jaguars need to win today against the San Diego Chargers to have any sort of hope of making the playoffs this year. Yes, it's Week 2 and we've already got a must-win game. Football is back.
Will Blake Bortles and the offense start fast? How does the T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory running back rotation look? Was the preseason a fluke, or will Luke Joeckel disappoint at left guard? How will a defense featuring more new players than returning ones play together?
