This coming Sunday, the Jacksonville Jaguars will travel to face the Buffalo Bills in a Week Five contest that could result in the Bills finally winning their first game of the 2010 season. In 2009, this contest was labeled as the two teams most likely to be moved to Los Angeles. That talk has quieted down this year, but it will be interesting to see how many Bills fans show up after the embarrassing Jets game.
The Jaguars seem to be just as schizophrenic a team as the Bills are, as you never know which Jaguars team will show up on any given Sunday, and the same can be said for the Bills.
The Jaguars opened up with a win at home against Denver and then used a 59 yard field goal on the final play of the game last week by Josh Scobee to upset the Indianapolis Colts at home. In between, the Jaguars were blown out by San Diego 38-13 on the road and lost at home to Philadelphia 28-3.
Following the loss to the Eagles, head coach Jack Del RIo called out starting QB David Garrard for the poor passing game. Conveniently enough, the Bills decided to release their starting QB and team captain Trent Edwards, so the Jaguars beat the Jets in claiming Edwards. Now entrenched as the backup QB in Jacksonville, Edwards will be inserted if Garrard has another hiccup.
For the Bills, they are looking for a win to settle the team down. There has been too much chaos on the roster and an uneven level of performance and effort under head coach Chan Gailey so far in the young season. The Bills competed hard against Miami and New England. In two other games, they looked dreadful by playing one good quarter at Green Bay and then only having two drives of any kind of success vs the New York Jets last weekend.
Following yesterday's trade of Marshawn Lynch to the Seattle Seahawks, the Bills will have to dig deep to pull out a win this Sunday. Let's take a look at how this game shapes up.
