The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Jacksonville Jaguars each are looking to pick up wins during the final stretch of the 2011 season.
The Jacksonville Jaguars just haven't been able to catch a break so far this season. After defeating the Tennessee Titans in the first week of the season, the Jaguars dropped five straight games. They were able to pull off a 12-7 defeat of the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football in October. Those are two very solid wins, but the third came against the Indianapolis Colts, a team that is likely to lose all 16 games.
But even after a 38-14 loss to the San Diego Chargers on Sunday, the Jaguars are just a one-point underdog to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to Odds Shark. The Buccaneers are also in hard times right now. Before the bye week during the last weekend of October, the Buccaneers went 4-3. Since then the team has dropped all five games.
Tampa Bay coach Rahieem Morris will certainly continue to feel the heat if he doesn't get a win this weekend. His clock may be ticking.
