Chargers vs. Jaguars 2022 Week 3: By The Numbers

Let’s take a look at this matchup on paper.

Syndication: Florida Times-Union Corey Perrine/Florida Times-Unio / USA TODAY NETWORK

Through two weeks, the Jaguars have been a much better and well-rounded team than they were a season ago. Second-year quarterback Trevor Lawrence is looking much more like the franchise cornerstone he’s expected to be while the upgrades on offense have shown they can be leaned upon by the young passer.

Lawrence hasn’t had to do it all by himself, either. The team’s defense just put on a gutsy showing against the Colts where they shutout Jonathan Taylor and company to the tune of 24-0 this past Sunday.

So while this is still what I’d consider the beginning of the “soft” part of the Chargers’ schedule, you still need to take this young and hungry team seriously. That’s especially true if the Bolts are forced to host Jacksonville without Justin Herbert should the team choose to rest him for another week.

As always, this is just a simple “screenshot” of both teams and how they’re faring on both offense and defense thus far in 2022.

Let’s dive in.
