The Jacksonville Jaguars return to the field Thursday night after coming out of the first preseason game with a 16-10 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. While the Jaguars put together a strong showing, their next opponent, the Chicago Bears, will prove to be a challenge.

Jaguar fans and media covering the team alike were glowing after a fantastic start by Blake Bortles and other young players, but against the Bears Jacksonville is hoping to show some consistency. After all, it’s one thing to shine in a game, but it’s more meaningful to stack a number of good performances in a row.

That’s what we’ll be looking for this week.

The Bears are coming off of a strong victory themselves, defeating the Philadelphia Eagles 34-28. Most notable was the fact that Chicago was able to force two early turnovers by Nick Foles and the Eagles’ first-team offense.

The Bears have always been known for their defense, but they now field an offense headlined by quarterback Jay Cutler, running back Matt Forte and receivers Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery.

The Jaguars will have to be prepared for a strong opposition. The nationally televised game will give fans from across the league the opportunity to see Bortles and what the Jaguar faithful hope is an up-and-coming Jacksonville squad.
