Jacksonville improved to 6-3 after beating the Chargers 20-17 in overtime last Sunday. Blake Bortles completed 28 of 51 passes for 273 yards, a touchdown, and 2 picks in the game while leading the Jaguars to score 25.1 points and 377.4 yards per game. Their defence, on the other hand, is holding foes to 14.9 points and 310.1 yards per game. The Browns remain winless and go 0-9 after losing 38-24 to the Lions last week with DeShone Kizer going 21-37 for 232 yards, a touchdown, and a pick. The team is scoring 15.9 points and 331.2 yards per game while the defence is allowing 26.7 points and 329.1 yards per game.
Our Free NFL Prediction: The Jaguars defence has been their strongest feature this year and it has been pulling through all season long. Last Sunday was a bit shaky for them but they managed to get the win there regardless. In this matchup, with Kizer still not being that great at QB and the Browns’ weak offence, Jacksonville’s defence is sure to look formidable. Bortles isn’t the greatest but he shouldn’t have any problems scoring against the Browns who have yet to get a single win. Take the Jaguars to cover.
