Chargers at Jaguars hand out pickaxes
“While the Chargers were bad at stopping the run, the Jags were even worse at stopping the pass. Justin Herbert could throw for 500 yards on Saturday, and that's because he'll be up against a Jaguars defense that has given up the fifth most passing yards in the season.NFLthis year.
"The Jaguars defense is not going to stop the Chargers passing game, the Chargers defense is not going to stop the Jaguars ground game, and now that I'm saying that out loud, I have a feeling it's going to turn into a shootout.
"This may be the craziest game of the wild card round and I'm pretty torn about my pick here, but after seeing the Chargers go 1-3 in outdoor games this year - a record that would have been 0-4 if thebraunI didn't miss a 53-yard field goal in the last few seconds - gotta roll with the jags. This is not a typo. I will vote for Jacksonville to win a playoff game.
"I have a bad feeling the Chargers will find a way to patch things up with the Chargers making a big mistake late in the game. A missed field goal? A late fumble? An interception? Not sure what it will be, but whatever whatever it is, we'll all feel sorry for the Chargers if that happens, and it'll only get more embarrassing when Jaxson De Ville celebrates the mistake while hitting a speedo carries.

"This is a game with two of the best young quarterbacks in the league. Justin Herbert and Trevor Lawrence will be playing in their first playoff game, but I don't think that matters. The Jaguars dominated the Chargers by shutting them out in Week 3, but that will be a lot. closer. Both passing games should be big days, so it should be a shootout. Watch for the Jaguars to have one more big game to win as Lawrence wins the first of his fights with Herbert."

“There will be some upsets this weekend for sure and I will be circling the Jags who beat the Chargers at home as one of them. Personally, this is the match I'm most looking forward to this weekend. They are two of the brightest young quarterbacks to ever meet in their first playoff games. Those two teams went head-to-head earlier this season, and Trevor Lawrence beat Justin Herbert with three touchdowns and a passer rating of 115.5 in a 38-10 record victory.
“While Jacksonville's offense rose and fell a bit in the AFC South's win over the Titans last week, the defense was excellent. And it wasn't an isolated case either. For the past five weeks, Jacksonville's defense has held opponents to just 15.6 points per game. To their credit, LA was just as good over the same stretch, allowing 15 points per game. So what's the tiebreaker when your quarterbacks and defenses play almost the same? coaching And I'll be happy to side with Doug Pederson over Brandon Staley here."

“The Chargers went over 7-9-1 this season while the Jaguars were closer to . 500 at 8-9. The cumulative 48 points they scored earlier this season in this week's matchup 3 reached the end, but I'm leaning down on this matchup. Maybe both teams will be a little shy to start the playoffs.
Jordan Dajani, from CBS Sports, bets on the Under in this match. Click here to read your thoughts on this week's linesHere.
Trevor Lawrence passed touchdowns: But by 1.5 (-115). Lawrence has not reached that number in three straight games and has scored just one touchdown in his last three regular season games. That's probably why the juice is the way it is. I think he'll win two this weekend. He played three against the Chargers earlier this year.
Travis EtienneReceiving yards: Over 16.5 (-111). Etienne has surpassed that number in each of his last four games. It's an explosive weapon that can cover that number in one screen pass.
austin thank youRushing Yards: Über 52.5 (-119). Ekeler ran just five yards against the Jaguars earlier this season. It was a season low for him, and he also received a season low touch in that Week 3 loss. The Chargers understand Ekeler's importance on offense, so he should top that number. He reached that number in three of the last four games.
