NFL Week 2: Jacksonville Jaguars will travel to the West Coast to take on the Oakland Raiders


This game can easily be a preview of the AFC Championship game this season. Nah just kidding, this game will more than likely have a playoff feel too it for both of these teams even though it’s only Week 2.

Right now Jacksonville’s main concern is trying to contain starting quarterback Terrelle Pryor who nearly beat the Indianapolis Colts all by himself. I thought when Matt Flynn was traded to the Oakland Raiders, he would be the starting quarterback.

But just like in Seattle, a quarterback who can use his legs took his job and now he’s watching on the sideline once again. The Raiders are probably the heavy favorite in this match up unless Blaine Gabbert turns into Peyton Manning and decides to throw seven touchdown passes against the Raiders defense.

What Oakland needs to do is be able to balance out the offense if they want to even consider becoming a contender in this league.

Not really much to see about Jacksonville, just do what you have to do to make sure Pryor doesn’t get too comfortable or else it will be a long day.

Gabbert currently sits at the bottom of the stat sheet for quarterbacks with only 121 passing yards and two touchdowns.

Pryor was the leagues leading rusher for a couple of hours before McCoy and the Philadelphia Eagles took the field. Pryor completed 19 of 29 attempts for 217 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions.

With his legs he rushed for 112 yards on 13 carries but couldn’t find the end zone.
