Chargers vs. Jaguars Part 2: By the Numbers

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

NFL: Tennessee Titans at Jacksonville Jaguars Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports

We all love a good revenge game in this community.

The Chargers will travel to Jacksonville this weekend to take on a Jaguars team that trounced them in their own stadium to the tune of 38-10. And honestly, I don’t think anyone in the Bolts’ locker room needs any more bulletin board material than that.

God willing, there also won’t be any severe injuries to any of the team’s superstars, either.

Both Justin Herbert and Trevor Lawrence each threw for 25 touchdowns this season while navigating a season full of ups and downs. Now, the two long-haired passers get to square off against each other in the playoffs.
