For week one of the 2014 football season, the Philadelphia Eagles are facing off against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars are notorious for being a below average, even bad, team the past few years. They had the third worst record in football last year. Now the Eagles are starting their year against the Jaguars, and it should be an easy win, but when you get too cocky you run the risk of being tricked into a loss.

The Jaguars recently revamped their offensive line, and brought in a completely new offense. Rookie quarterback Blake Bortles may or may not be starting week one, but my guess is that he is, and between him and his new rookie wide receiver duo Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson could rip apart the Eagles secondary. Meanwhile newly acquired running back Toby Gerhart gets to step into the lead role for the first time and may look to make a good impression against the young Eagles defensive line.

Along with revamping their offense, the Jaguars also revamped their defensive line by adding ex-Seattle Seahawks defensive ends Red Bryant and Chris Clemons. The Eagles offensive line is in my opinion the best in the league and should be able to handle these new pass rushers fine, so these new additions should be nothing to worry about.
