#1 The Jacksonville Jaguars announced that Blake Bortles von laiyongcai92 27.02.2019 03:51

WILL be their starting quarterback for their Week 8 game against the Philadelphia Eagles in London this Sunday.Bortles’ starting job was in question following the Jaguars’ decision to bench him in favor of Cody Kessler during Jacksonville’s Week 8 loss to the Houston Texans.The Jaguars have really struggled in their last three games. They’re averaging 9.3 points scored during that stretch. Bortles has completed just 54.6% of his attempts for 640 yards (6.46 average) Womens Fletcher Cox Jersey , two touchdowns, five interceptions, and a 60.2 passer rating. He’s also fumbled three times. Although Bortles will be starting, NFL insider Adam Schefter reports he’s going to have a “short leash.” Schefter also notes the Jaguars will be splitting up first-team reps between Bortles and Kessler.Kessler looked slightly more competent than Bortles when he was thrust into action against Houston. The 2016 third-round pick completed 70% of his passes against for 156 yards (5.2 average) http://www.philadelphiaeaglesteamonlines.com/jason-peters-jersey , one touchdown, one interception, and a 79.3 passer rating. It goes without saying that the Eagles really need to take advantage of this Jaguars team that’s in disarray. Philadelphia can advance to 4-4 by winning in London. Losing to the Jags would be very embarrassing, especially given the quarterback disparity between Carson Wentz and Bortles/Kessler. After trouncing the New York Giants on Thursday Night Football last week Authentic Destiny Vaeao Jersey , the Eagles are returning back to Philadelphia for a home game against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.The NFL odds have the Eagles favored in this matchup. The line opened with the Eagles as 3.5 home favorites, which is slightly more than the standard three-point measure. The action on the line has since caused it to swing to the Eagles being favored by four points, which indicates the early bets are being placed on Philly. It’s not difficult to understand why people would put their faith in the reigning Super Bowl champions. The Eagles look like they might be back on track after blowing out the Giants. Plus, Lincoln Financial Field is obviously a tough place to play as the Eagles are 17-3 in 20 meaningful home games since the Doug Pederson era began in 2016. Besides http://www.philadelphiaeaglesteamonlines.com/jordan-hicks-jersey , the Panthers hardly look like some juggernaut. They’re 3-2 after losing to Washington on Sunday in a game where they found themselves down 17-0 at one point. Carolina barely managed to defeat a bad Giants team in Week 5, needing a 63-yard miracle field goal at the end of the game. But that’s not to say the Eagles should sleep on this Panthers team. Since the Cam Newton era began in 2011, Carolina is 28-17-1 against the spread (22-24 straight up) in games right after a loss. That’s the fifth best rate in the NFL. In addition, the Panthers are 21-14-0 against the spread (14-20-1 straight up) as road underdogs since 2011 Womens Brandon Graham Jersey , which is the fourth best rate in the NFL. In other words, they’ve made a habit of bouncing back after losing. I’m looking forward to this week’s matchup. It sounds weird but I feel like this is a revenge game for the Eagles even though they beat the Panthers last year. It felt like the refs prevented Philadelphia from blowing out Carolina last season. Every time the Eagles were about to break the game open, a call went in the Panthers’ favor. The Eagles had to deal with a HISTORICALLY lopsided penalty difference in that game. Here’s hoping things are more fair this time around. Another reason to be excited about this game is that it’s a chance for the Eagles to cement they’re “we’re back!” status. Beating the Giants was fun and good, but it’s clear New York is just awful. It’d be nice to see the Eagles’ resurgence last week wasn’t just due to the Giants being bad. Philadelphia has an opportunity to build on their success and improve to 4-3 on the season.
