Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE

There has been no bigger underdog this season and there will likely be none bigger for the remainder of the season than the Jaguars as they enter a Week 8 matchup against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

With the most recognizable player on the team, Maurice Jones-Drew out for the game with a foot sprain, the Jaguars will instead have to turn to Rashad Jennings and hope that Blaine Gabbert finds success against the Packers despite a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder. With a strong performance, it could be a Rocky-esque showing for the second-year quarterback, but Las Vegas expects it to be a mismatch in favor the home team.

For any chance to pull the mammoth upset, the Jaguars will need to find success against an injured Green Bay secondary and will need to have a consistent pass rush against a Packers offensive line that has had its fair share of struggles this season.

The official lists of inactives for today's game:
