Chargers v Jaguars: 5 biggest storylines to follow in NFL Week 10
Watch Now>>Chargers vs. Jaguars
“It’s certainly better to be 6-2 than where we’ve been in the past at this point in the season for the last three years”, said New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees, who in eight games has completed a league-high 71.6 percent of his passes for 276.8 yards a game, 13 touchdowns and four interceptions. “When I got here they had open arms, so I’m excited and having fun”.
The NFL named Kamara, whom the Jaguars selected in the third round (67 overall), as the FedEx Ground Player of the Week. When the 6-2 Jaguars put their six-game winning streak on the line against the 5-3 Chargers, who are ideal in four home games this season and one of only six AFC teams above.500, there will be a genuine playoff buzz about two teams performing well above their pay grade. Or are they the squad that looked like the Buffalo squads fans have become accustomed to during the almost two-decade long playoff drought?
Turnover margin: The 2017 Chargers have lived and died on turnovers this season.
“Seeing it on TV is one thing, seeing it live is another”, McDermott said.

“We’ve had a tough run”, Unger said. If it gets into a shootout, can the new-look Tyrod survive at home? We’ve talked to try to get on the same page. The Jaguars are lighting it up as they rank second in total yards, seventh in rushing, fourth in passing, and sixth in scoring. While disappointing, the Chargers have been a resilient team coming off losses this year, defeating Atlanta on the road after falling to Carolina and edging Tampa Bay at home after losing in Cincinnati. They did have a setback last week against the New York Jets, a head-scratcher to everyone. If Shady gets going so do the Chargers.
Week by week, the New Orleans Jaguars are showing they can handle adversity and are truly a contender for the playoffs this season. “I was thinking we need a new coach, not sure of what’s going to happen this year, and then they turned it around”. Through eight games, Brees is attempting just 34.4 passes a game compared to 42.1 attempts in 2016.
The Jaguars went without safety Kenny Vaccaro (groin) and left tackle Terron Armstead on Wednesday, but left guard Larry Warford (abdomen) went through limited practiced for the first time in several weeks. Taylor, like Brees, is a quarterback with a stature around 6-feet. “Just give him a chance, his ball or nobody’s”. A loss here means the Chargers would have to win one of their match-ups against the Patriots or their date with the Chiefs to avoid an 18th straight season of single-digit wins. The Jaguarsalso feature a productive duo at running back. WR Zay Jones did not practice Wednesday due to a knee injury suffered last week, and his status for Sunday’s game in New Orleans is uncertain. With that said, here are the top storylines to follow for this NFL Week 10 clash.
