Jacksonville could not move the ball against the Ravens either on the ground or through the air and will have problems of the same type against a tough Eagles defense. Look for Nick Foles to play a few series for the Jaguars, while Carson Wentz will likely see his first action of the preseason as well for the Eagles. Eagles dominate this one on the road. Final Score Prediction, Philadelphia Eagles win and cover ATS 21-10.
