Saints vs. Jaguars prediction for preseason Week 2
Preseason games are hard to predict but the Jaguars were the worst team in the league a season ago. They didn’t look great in their loss to the Browns last week but No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence threw just nine passes and wasn’t in the game very long.
The Saints’ offense struggled last week in their loss to the Ravens, turning the ball over six times. If they can’t protect the football in this game, they’ll likely be handed their second loss of preseason.
New Orleans isn’t sure who their starting quarterback will be this year so they’ll be focusing more on letting their quarterbacks get out there and show what they can do. The Jaguars know who their quarterback is this year so they won’t hesitate to let the backups step in and start taking the snaps.
