NFL action is set to take place on 8/27/22 and it will feature Jacksonville Jaguars at Atlanta Falcons. The game is set to take place at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. The game starts at 3:00 PM EST and should be on NFL Network.

The Jaguars have not found a way to win yet in the preseason. The Jaguars last loss was against the Steelers. On the downside the loss was a very low scoring game with a final score of 16-15.

Jaguars Offense

Offensively the Jaguars used 3 quarterbacks who ended up going 26/42 for 270 yards. The Jaguars did end up getting picked off once in the game, but did allow 2 sacks in the game for a loss of 7 yards. Running the ball the Jaguars picked up 97 yards and a touchdown on a total of 30 carries.

Jaguars Defense

The defense for Jacksonville allowed Pittsburgh to go 28/36 for 255 yards and 2 touchdowns in the air. The Jaguars did end up getting a sack for a loss of 8 yards. When Pittsburgh ran the ball the Steelers gained only 24 yards on a total of 14 carries.

Atlanta is coming here after getting their recorded leveled up at 1-1 in the preseason. The Falcons first loss came against the New York Jets by a score fo 24-16.

Falcons Offense

Passing the ball for the Falcons was done with 3 different quarterbacks. The quarterbacks went a combined 18/29 for 265 yards and a touchdown. Atlanta was sacked 2 times in the game and lost a total of 18 yards. Running the ball Atlanta picked up a total of 115 yards on 28 carries on the day.

Falcons Defense

On the defensive side the ball the Falcons allowed the Jets to go 20/28 for 209 yards and a touchdown in the air. The Falcons did end up getting a pick in the game, but did not record any sacks. Atlanta’s rushing defense was not that bad giving up 70 yards and a touchdown on a total of 23 carries.

Odds from Betonline.ag 

I have to say that this game will be closer and the Jaguars could end up covering if and only if the Falcons continue to have their penalty issues. If Atlanta is able to fix those issues it should be very easy to see the Falcons coming out on top and I think this game allows the Falcons to get the problems fixed and secure the win. Still, I do not think either one of these offenses combined is enough to put the total on the over.
