The New England Patriots (9-6) will host the Jacksonville Jaguars (2-13) in Week 17.
The Patriots are coming off a two-game losing streak and they need one win out of the final two games to secure a playoff spot. The Indianapolis Colts and Buffalo Bills were huge challenges for the Patriots, but the Jaguars should be an easier opponent to deal with.
Jacksonville is decimated with COVID-19 designations, leaving a fair amount of the roster out of the game on Sunday. This is Mac Jones’ opportunity to play well and lead his team to a victory that will put the Patriots in the playoffs — because the final week against the Miami Dolphins is always a difficult one for Bill Belichick’s teams.
