Now we’re over the halfway point of the regular season, every game counts more than ever. There is simply no more room for error. With this in mind, along with everything else that is at stake, we’re expecting the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Dallas Cowboys to put out all the stops for a much-needed victory.
Form Jacksonville Jaguars
The Jacksonville Jaguars bagged a surprise 36-22 win over the Tennessee Titans in their last match to improve their record for the past 10 matches to 3-7. They are also 2-3 in the last five at home.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have scored 22.6 points per game this season, which is pretty average compared to the other NFL offenses. Surrendering 22.6 points per game leaves the Jacksonville Jaguars’ defense around the middle of the pack compared to the rest of the league’s defensive units.
In 2021, the Jacksonville Jaguars came home in fourth place in the AFC South standings after going 3-14 across all games. The hosts naturally hope to go even better this season. However, like every other team in the NFL, sealing a spot in the playoff during this regular season is the first and foremost priority for now.

The unit ranks third in the NFL’s offensive ladder with 27.7 points per game and has put up 35.4 points in the last five matches alone. With 17.6 points allowed per game, the Dallas Cowboys’ defense is up in the top half of the league’s defensive rankings, which may give them some pull for their latest trip.
The Dallas Cowboys have been one of the surprise packages this season. Despite being billed as an unlikely bet in the NFC playoff race, the visitors hold the fifth seed in the NFC Conference in Week 15, leaving them set for an unexpected postseason berth this coming January.
Having lost their previous two matches against the Dallas Cowboys, the Jacksonville Jaguars finally got one over their coming visitors in their most recent meeting.
