JACKSONVILLE: The Jaguars had a win slip through their fingers last Sunday in Oakland. Early in the third quarter they led the Raiders 20-6 but Oakland stormed back and eventually beat Jacksonville 26-23 in overtime. In the game, Chad Henne replaced starter Blaine Gabbert after the later suffered an injury in the first half. Henne went on to complete just 9-of-20 passes for 71 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions. Worse yet, Maurice Jones Drew suffered a foot injury after being held to just six yards on two carries. He’ll likely miss multiple games but the injury isn’t season threatening, so Rashad Jennings will take his spot in the lineup for now. The loss dropped Jacksonville to 1-5 this season but the Jaguars did cover the 6-point spread. They’re now 3-3 against the number this season.

GREEN BAY: Aaron Rodgers put on a clinic last Sunday in the Packers’ 30-20 victory versus the Rams. Rodgers completed 30-of-37 passes for 342 yards and three touchdowns, while Jordy Nelson racked up eight catches for 122 yards and one score. Randall Cobb added eight receptions for 89 yards and two touchdowns as he continues to earn playing time with Greg Jennings being out. Green Bay’s running game remains stagnant but the Packers have won two in a row and three of their last four now. They’re 4-3 overall and 3-4 against the spread, although they have covered in two straight games.

ODDS: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Packers are 14.5-point favorites over the Jaguars, while the over/under total has yet to be released. The Jaguars enter this game with a straight up record of 1-5 and are 3-3 against the spread, while the Packers are 4-3 straight up and 3-4 ATS.

TRENDS: The Jaguars are 4-0 against the spread in their last four road games, 3-1-1 ATS in their last five games in October and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games following a straight up loss. The Packers, meanwhile, are 5-1 ATS in their last six games in Week 8, 13-5 ATS in their last 18 home games and 7-2 ATS in their last nine games in October.
