THE TEAM NEWS

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS

  • New Orleans remained unbeaten with back-up QB Teddy Bridgewater under center as they edged out Tampa Bay last week to move to 4-1 and they will be confident of continuing their impressive run as they head to Jacksonville.
  • Saints DE Trey Hendrickson missed the game with the Bucs but his neck injury is not deemed serious and he could return for this game with a limited practice on Wednesday a good sign that he could suit up this week.
  • WR Tre’Quan Smith returned to the team for last week’s win having missed the previous two matches but he appeared to aggravate his lingering ankle injury and it forced him to exit the game early with another spell on the sidelines a real possibility.

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS

  • Jacksonville could not extend their winning run to three matches as they lost out in a high-scoring contest against Carolina and will be disappointed after they were handed the chance to tie the game with the final drive of the game.
  • The Jaguars will be without TE James O'Shaughnessy after he suffered a season-ending ACL injury in the game against the Panthers whilst they will also be sweating on the fitness of S Ronnie Harrison after he was forced off in the same game.
  • Harrison was able to log a limited practice on Wednesday but his ankle injury will be monitored through the week whilst CB Jalen Ramsey sat out once again with a back issue last week but he too was a limited participant although hopes of him playing are slim due to his trade request.

THE PREDICTION

Jacksonville struggled to contain the Carolina offense which saw them fall short against the Panthers and now they will face another big challenge as they host New Orleans. The Saints improved to 4-1 last week and can extend their winning run to four games in this contest. The Jags are likely to be competitive but the Saints arguably boast a better offense than the Panthers which spells trouble for their struggling defense.
