Editor’s note: NESN.com’s Mike Cole, Ricky Doyle and Andre Khatchaturian deliver their NFL picks every Thursday of the season, and here’s who they like in Sunday’s Jacksonville Jaguars-San Diego Chargers Week 2 game.
Jacksonville Jaguars (0-1) at (-3) San Diego Chargers (0-1), 4:25 p.m.
Mike: Jaguars. The Chargers are just 2-7 ATS (and have lost three of four straight-up) as home favorites. The Jaguars should add to that misery, and Mike McCoy should start updating his résumé.
Ricky: Jaguars. Philip Rivers just lost his favorite target, the Chargers have had some issues at home and the Jaguars showed even in defeat last week against the Packers that they deserve to be taken seriously this season. What am I missing here?
Andre: Jaguars. I have a feeling the Jaguars wouldn’t be underdogs in this game if their name wasn’t the Jaguars. They held Aaron Rodgers to under 200 passing yards, and that’s pretty damn impressive. As for the Chargers, Philip Rivers had just 92 passing yards in the second half. Keenan Allen’s absence might’ve had something to do with that.
