The Jaguars, who finished 5-11 and were 31st in scoring last season with 15.3 points per game, face one of the NFL’s most difficult schedules this year.
The city of Las Vegas will welcome the NFL with open arms in 2020, with the draft set for April 23-25 and the new Raiders stadium opening in July.
After signing a one-year contract for $810,000, the 27-year-old has added 10 to 15 pounds and pushed for playing time during training camp.
One of the most notable components of the $1.9 billion Allegiant Stadium is the massive field tray that will hold the natural grass turf the Raiders will play on.
Jacksonville is 9-2 to win its division and New York is 6-1, with the Lions 12-1, Bengals 14-1, Buccaneers 16-1, Giants 18-1 and Raiders and Cardinals at 20-1.
The starters will receive some playing time, but many will spend most of the night watching when the Rebels scrimmage at 6:30 p.m. Saturday at Sam Boyd Stadium.
