Gameday | Chargers vs. Jaguars -
Last Sunday, the Jaguars held the Bengals to 148 net yards (29 net rushing yards and 119 net passing yards), the fifth-fewest net yards allowed in Jaguars history.

Chargers’ win streak against Jaguars will be tested by revamped Jacksonville offense – Jack Wang
“I think their philosophy is — they’re still taking some shots with him — but it’s passes that are very manageable passes,” said Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, who knows Bortles well from his four years as Jaguars head coach. “You see some screens, some movement passes — things that he does really well.”

Can Philip Rivers lead the Chargers back to the playoffs? - Tanner Wrape
In order for the Chargers to compete for a playoff spot, Rivers must rely on the weapons he has around him. He is accompanied with a strong defense on the other side of the ball and he has multiple weapons on his offense which he can lean on. He does not have to heave the ball down the field 10 times a game in order to put points on the board.

Why Calais Campbell Calls Joey Bosa "Special" - Hayley Elwood
“(Philip) Rivers has had great success versus the Jaguars,” Marrone said. “In six games he’s played, he’s never lost to us and he’s had really unbelievable days; just outstanding. (Keenan) Allen is a targeted guy, heck of a player (and) done an outstanding job. (Melvin Gordon) can run the ball, has speed, power (and) breaks tackles, so he will be a challenge for us.”

What are the Jaguars Saying about the Bolts? - Ricky Henne
“He’s going to be a guy who’s going to put on a gold jacket (for the Hall of Fame). He’s proven to a lot of different teams he can throw the ball and orchestrate their offense. He’s a big problem to deal with. There’s no doubt. He’s had some good success against us, and we’ve got to do the best we can to try to contain him.” – Defensive Coordinator Todd Wash

Chargers expect a steady diet of Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette - Eric Williams
“They run the ball,” Perryman said. “They’ve got three backs that do a great job and have their own unique style of running the ball, but they’re all powerful backs. Like I said, they’re the No. 1 team running the ball, so it’s going to be a heavyweight fight -- that’s what I like to call it.”
