The Jacksonville Jaguars go up against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday in this Week 8 match up with the Packers hot favorites to claim the win. The game is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream on the NFL Sunday Ticket (details below).
The Jaguars, who currently hold a 1-5 record, are huge underdogs against the Packers, who are 4-3.
Injuries have caused problems for both teams throughout this season, but recently the Packers have been able to churn out some good results, including a hugely impressive 42-24 win against the Houston Texans.
The Jaguars on the other hand are in a terrible run of form, coming into this game on the back of three straight losses. Their most recent loss was a disheartening 23-26 loss to the Raiders in overtime in Week 7.
Despite the Packers clearly holding the favorites tag for this game, it is the Jaguars that hold the better recent record in meetings between these two teams. The Jaguars have won the past two games between these sides, although the most recent was all the way back in 2008, so there is only so much that can be seen from looking at that.
For the Packers, Aaron Rodgers has been on fire; in the past two games he has registered 680 yards and nine touchdowns with zero interceptions. However, he may have to adjust himself today as Greg Jennings is out injured with a groin problem still, and Jordy Nelson looks likely to miss the game with a hamstring injury.
The Jaguars meanwhile will be hoping that their pass rush can be as effective as against the Raiders in Week 7. Prior to that it had looked sluggish to say the least, but finally showed some form in that game as Jeremy Mincey claimed his first sack of the season, and Austen Lane put on a tenacious display.
