Despite neither team having a chance to make the playoffs, there's still points of pride for both the Jaguars and Bills to play for when they meet on Sunday in Buffalo. The Jaguars' decent recovery from an 0-8 start has them the favorite to get their fifth win of the season, while Buffalo is looking to avoid its fifth consecutive season with double-digit losses.
Before last week's win over the Houston Texans, the Jaguars hadn't won three games since 2010. A win over Buffalo would give them four straight wins fro the first time since 2007. Jags running back Maurice Jones-Drew -- he's run for 264 yards in the last three games -- has been a key part of their winning streak, but could be sidelined by a hamstring injury.
While plenty have remained critical of the Jaguars -- crediting their favorable second half schedule for their improved play -- it appears that experts are starting to get on board with Gus Bradley's team.
Joel Thorman is the lone SB Nation expert picking the Bills, though he's joined by Adam Schefter and Ron Jaworski over at ESPN in that opinion. The rest seem confident in the Jags recent play but we'll have to wait and see if the Bills repay the faith of those brave dissenters.
