The Jacksonville Jaguars and Los Angeles Chargers will face-off in a game between two 1-1 teams on Sunday afternoon.
The Jaguars pulled off one of the more surprising results in Week 2, blanking the Colts 24-0. Meanwhile, the Chargers beat the Raiders in the opening week, but fell to the Chiefs on Thursday Night Football in Week 2.
Justin Herbert hurt his ribs in the loss to the Chiefs, but he's considered day-to-day, so he should be back in action this weekend.

Jaguars vs. Chargers Prediction and Pick
It might surprise you, but the Jaguars have had better numbers than the Chargers so far this season, but you can't argue the fact Los Angeles has had the much tougher schedule through the first two games.
With that being said, there's one thing that holds true for both teams. Their offenses have both had strong performances. The Jaguars are averaging 5.5 yards per play and the Chargers are averaging 5.4. Both units also rank in the top half in red zone performance. Los Angeles is finding the end zone on 62.50% of red zone trips, and Jacksonville is scoring a touchdown on 57.14% of red zone trips.
An interesting tidbit for both teams is that they rank second in third in QB sacked percentage, which means their offensive lines are giving their quarterbacks plenty of time to throw. Increased time to throw, should result in more offense and more points.
